It is almost 2 years (Jan 2008) since I quit my job to start CodeLathe and got the team together to build Tonido. It has been an incredible roller coaster ride since then for us with more highs than lows. I wouldn’t claim there were no lows, but the lows always made us appreciate the highs even better.
The biggest impact has been the incredibly positive and encouraging response by our users, customers and the media. It has really made the difference in us having the ability to weather the many storms we faced.
And by any measure, 2009 was pretty incredible for CodeLathe. It was finally the year in which we released Tonido after working on it night and day the last one and half years. Here’s a quick recap of the 2009 highlights:
March 2009: Released Tonido Beta, with Workspace, Jukebox, Photos, Webshare
Apr 2009: Released Thots, ClipThots FF plugin, TonidoFox FF plugin
May 2009: Released Search
Aug 2009: Released TonidoPlug HW, Tonido went Live, Released Torrent, Explorer, OpenID , WebsharePro apps
Oct 2009: Released Tonido Relay Service
Nov 2009: Released Tonido Application Store support, WebsharePro Drag and Drop Uploader
Dec 2009: Released Backup
The list is phenomenal, but I am sure many of you will be more interested in what is coming next in 2010..
Without spilling all the beans, here’s some of the surefire things you can expect, Money Manager Ex on Tonido, native iPhone app support, more OS support (more Linux Distros) etc. Also expect Tonido 1.0 to finally reach your computer next year. We clearly see what needs to get done to get there.
But even more importantly there will be a huge focus in making Tonido easy and intuitive to use especially by the average non-geek user. So look for a ton of improvements to arrive at a breakneck pace.
So thank y’all for a mighty fine 2009!
