We’ve just wrapped up day 3 of this week’s Wave Protocol Summit in San Francisco. Developers and industry partners have gathered from all over the world to discuss the architecture of Wave, opportunities for use in enterprise, government, and consumer technology, and the future of the open source project. The last few days have included a great mix of architecture presentations, technical discussions, and interesting demos using Wave technology (WaveLook, Novell Vibe, Wave-vs.net, and others).
Since the Wave in a Box announcement in September, progress has been rapid. We’ve recently added:
- a new wave panel, which is much prettier and a lot faster,
- improvements to login and authentication,
- robot and data API support,
- support for Wave Gadgets,
- new setup, installation guides and tutorials,
- support for browers without websocket support (via socket.io),
- designs for a file-based wave store, and
- support for federation between instances of Wave in a Box (and wavesandbox.com).
You can keep up to date by following the Progress Reports wave.
As a reminder, we’ll continue running wave.google.com at least through the end of the year. We’ve also recently introduced a wave export feature. In addition, we’re working on ways for you to access waves through Google Docs and we hope to share more on our progress soon.
If you’re following along from home, we’ll be sharing videos following the event — but please join us in the Wave Protocol group.
