We hope all our new users are enjoying Campfire this week! As always, you can report any bugs you find under the “help” tab in Campfire, and we’ll start creating fixes right away! This has been a busy week for us, we won’t always have this many updates so close together, but we’re working around the clock to make Campfire the best it can be!
First, The Gender Update is a mandatory update for Steam and Non-Steam. It is available for download now. The previous version of Campfire will not work. This update will not affect your stories, everything will be right where you left it. The Gender Update contains security improvements that require us to do the patch this way. We do not anticipate mandatory updates will become a regular occurrence. We’ve had three updates this week, but we plan on future ones being larger with more features and fixes releasing every two weeks. The next update set is the Customization Update which will release in early-mid December, depending on how long the subsequent security fixes take us to nail down. Here are the changes for the Gender Update:
Second, we created an update roadmap on our site which you can find here: https://www.campfiretechnology.com/roadmap.html We compiled all of the feature requests we have gotten so far and posted them online, so you know what we’re planning and what to look forward to! Our goal is to be as vocal as possible when it comes to updates. If you see anything missing from the future updates list, please email email@example.com The list isn’t explicit in detail, we have many smaller changes coming with those updates as well. However, we think the general features we have listed should give you a good idea of what we’re focusing on.
This isn’t a precise schedule. We are college students, and sometimes school, social lives, and family have to come first. We will do our best to adhere to the schedule we have, but we appreciate your understanding if an update comes a week early or a week later than planned. (It all kind of depends on the features being added and the time of year.) We’re going to update the site with a visual indicator (like a checkmark) so users can follow along with the progression of updates leading up to their release. As we continue work on Campfire, we will be able to figure out how long updates typically take, so we’ll be able to better give precise dates later on.
We hope you all are enjoying using Campfire. As always, we’d love to see what you create on social media if you’d like to share it with us at any of these locations:
Now go write some fantastic stories!
