New Version of the ProjectPier Project Management Web Application

I’ve been using the Basecamp project management web app at work for a while, and although I like certain features, I do not want to use that for my freelance work. I mostly do not want to use it because there is an excellent alternative that is very close to Basecamp in it’s functionality: ProjectPier, which presents a long-awaited opportunity for me to work on the code of an Open Source project.

The excellent PHP project management web application ProjectPier saw a new release, version 0.8.6, on December 31st, 2010. There has been a great number of new features added, and now the system is even more like Basecamp.

I’ve contacted the lead developer, and he is interested in learning more about me, and collaborating. The features I am currently most interested in adding are first the things that it does not have and basecamp does. I expect they will all be done in the theme. I plan to then move on to adding some features that I would like to have in a project management tool that we use at Canada’s Web Shop, which will be additions that will require more extensive work, up to and including additions to the database schema.

Should be fun!
