Nirvana 2 – Preview Release

On November 11, 2010 we made the upcoming Nirvana 2, a work-in-progress, available for preview.  We are very very excited about the reception it has received thus far.  We are letting the adventurous take it for a spin so that we can learn where we stand on a number of engineering related issues.

Some key points about Nirvana 2:

  • It is a complete rewrite from the ground up
  • It will run offline, without an internet connection
  • UI interaction is completely decoupled from network i/o, so it’s wicked fast
  • It has full internationalization support built in under the hood
  • It runs completely on top of the new Nirvana API
  • It is still a work in progress, and browser support is still limited
