Adam Haskell takes over Fusebox

August 13, 2008 ·

After many months of discussions and planning, we are finally able to announce that Adam Haskell, Lead Architect at The Kroger Co., is taking over development of the Fusebox core files from me, effective immediately. As the announcement on the Fusebox website states, my work commitments have gradually taken me further and further away from Fusebox over the last year. Although I managed to get Fusebox 5.5 out the door in December followed by a maintenance release in March of this year, I have not been able to make any headway on my plans for 5.6, which was supposed to have been in public alpha around CFUNITED. Adam has been a dedicated Fusebox user for four years and has closely followed the development of Fusebox 5.x. He's an experienced architect and I'm very pleased to have someone of his caliber step up and carry the torch for the Fusebox community. I will stay on the Fusebox 5 mailing list (on Yahoo! Groups) for a while to answer questions about the transition and I will drop into the forums about once a week but I expect to drop off Team Fusebox and all Fusebox-related mailing lists and forums by early September. Adam and I are in constant IM contact so the transition should be very smooth (and he already has full access to Trac and SVN).

    Thanks Sean for all your hard work in bringing Fusebox to where it is. It's the framework I started with, so I've stuck with it, in large part due to the improvements you made to the framework!

    Yes, thank you Sean! Not only for Fusebox, but, also for all the work you dedicate to the community in general!

    Extremely grateful, Sean, for everything you did to make version 5.x the superb framework that it is.

    Thanks for all the hard work over the years Sean. Your efforts have really moved the framework along.
