View Full Version : A user's perspective

I think that a common misconception is that Slim is spending lots of times
on new features when in fact they are primarily concerned with core features
and stability. All of these funky features are being developed by 3rd party

It's unrealistic to believe that Slim is going to spend a lot of resources
on the current 5x branch when major back end overhauling is needed. The
current architecture is just not good at handling the massive libraries that
more and more users have acquired.
