It was a long while ago that I wrote a status update about what is happening with NodeStream, this post attempts to summarize what is going on right now.
Support for panopoly features
We have been working together with the panopoly guys to reduce the dependencies on the excellent features that are part of the panopoly distribution. The latest dev of most of the features that are part of the panopoly distribution are now working nicely inside of a NodeStream installation, and we are planning on including some of the parts, like the wysiwyg and the theme feature in some of the NodeStream products.
Upgrading entity translation
We are currently working on revising the entity translation permission system. It is very important for us that it is possible to have a translation workflow where translators can be responsible for only translating content without having access to edit and add new original content on the site. Work is going on over here.
Setting up a NodeStream and Drupal development environments can be hard. Especially when you have to write a lot of boilerplate code, like installation profiles and so on. We are working on a tool called Nosh (NodeStream shell). NodeStream shell contains helper commands for generating code for building projects and installation profiles, and has helper tools for setting up a vagrant project. More details will come on this later, you can check out the code on github.
We have been working on maintaining the distribution, upgrading modules along the way.
