Great product. I am building a helthcare app requiring this functionality. How does this product compare with firepad and hackpad?
Actually we’re just talking about one release here (Substance 0.5.0). Don’t get confused by the version numbers of the individual components.
With the release of Substance 0.5.0 you’ll be able to:
- Create documents offline using the Substance Composer
- Create text annotations and comments
- Invite friends to collaborate
- Publish a nicely formatted version on Substance.io
- Update publications with a single click
However, let me sketch our development-roadmap quickly:
Alpha-1 (Early February)
Initial public release of the Composer and Substance.io. It features a complete publishing workflow (single-user editing), and has support for basic text content types (headings, text elements).
Alpha-2 (Early April)
Multi-user editing (Edit the same document on different computers by different users). This requires some complex logic on the server and client (e.g. conflict detection and resolution).
Beta-1 (Early June)
Beta-1 adds a polished user-interface for the Composer, support for images and an improved reading experience on Substance.io.
Stable (Late July)
Final release. It comes with bugfixes and optimizations, so a smooth editing/publishing workflow can be guaranteed. We’ll relaunch Substance.io and replace it with the all-new server infrastructure.
I hope this answers your question.
I think your roadmap is seriously missing a list of actual features that are planned for each of the releases. As of now, it’s just a plan of regularly increased version numbers ;)
