It's been a great conference this year. I've enjoyed meeting some of you in person and discussing UX-related and many non-UX related matters with you. Thanks a lot for the detailed feedback you've given and are still providing to us and to everyone volunteering to test new prototypes or builds as well as to help in solving problems. It's great to get that much support from Magnolia's community.

Then, of course, we've also demoed Magnolia's new UI and user experience last week, as most of you have probably heard, seen or read by now. What a relief to finally take the wraps off our current development. I'm looking forward to discuss our ideas, decisions and some of the challenges we're facing more openly with you now.
As a first step, I've opened the UX space on our wiki to everyone. It is available at:
Note that not everything we do and have done is contained in that space, but a lot is. Some texts, images or mockups might be no longer current, as I tend to not adapt early pages to match the actual implementation or later developments. But most of the concepts and designs are up-to-date or at least valid to a large extend.
Have a look at what interests you, give the Developer Preview a spin and continue to send us your feedback:
- add comments to the wiki pages
- the magnolia user list or forum is a good place for any general Magnolia-related UX questions and discussions.
- send me a mail with your observations
I'm monitoring all of the above and generally reply within a couple of days, unless I'm deep, very deep into analyzing, sketching, drawing, framing, documenting, arguing and testing. :-)
To keep up with our efforts in developing a CMS UI that is as easy and enjoyable to use as your smartphone:
- subscribe to the Atom feed of this blog
- track the UX wiki space for changes (log in, choose "Extras", then "Watch this space")
- follow me on twitter (@mgnl_ux)
Thank you all for your interest, your feedback and your passion in helping to make Magnolia's UI an ever greater experience.
