Mindtouch has released RC1 of the next major version of the Deki platform on which MDC is based.  I’m going to be spending much of tomorrow experimenting with it to see how it feels in terms of meeting our needs.

This version doesn’t yet support importing from or updating an existing install, so it will be somewhat limited testing.  The next release candidate is expected to support upgrading in place, which will let us do a more thorough investigation — however, we want to try to find as many possible issues as we can right away, in order to ensure that we get any revision requests in as soon as possible.

I also need to evaluate how much — if any — work needs to be done in order to make sure our custom skin is fully functional with the new features.
