Fluorescent

Fluorescent is a set of intermediate updates to Luna. We're hoping to limit the Fluorescent-series of updates to at most 4 updates (Blue, Orange, Pink and Yellow) which we will provide with regular minor feature updates along the way while we're putting our back into fixing everything we think is wrong with Luna, which might take a while...

Fluorescent Blue

Fluorescent Blue is the first of these updates and will also be the largest update of the series. This update mainly focusses on catching up the 2 years we lost after Luna 2.0.7.

Its main focus is with the following subjects:

  • Update included 3rd party packages.
  • Revamped styles in SCSS with Bootstrap 4.
  • A fresh and modern new default theme.
  • Improved theming support with installable themes and less dependency on Luna's attached classes.
  • Include Font Awesome 5 Free, with support for Font Awesome 5 Pro.
  • Support for additional icon packs.
  • Drop image-based emoticons with support for adding new emoji from the Backstage.
  • General Quality of Code improvements.
  • Initial implementation of the Markdown parser.
  • General bugfixes.

Fluorescent Orange

Fluorescent Orange is the second update in the series and will mainly focus on refining the changes with the previous release. We hope to make Fluorescent a bi-monthly release, so this update should come rougly 2 months after Fluorescent Blue.

However, we also want to introduce some new functionality in this, it isn't just about improving what we've got.

  • A revamped ban system, with points.

Glitter

Glitter is our big reset button. With Glitter, we want to return to a more simple experience, which will include the removal of some features that should never have made it into Luna. We'll also take some serious care of the codebase in general. Glitter is not supposed to introduce many new features.

We don't have much to say about this update yet, but here is what we currently want to focus on:

  • Serious updates to the codebase. Seriously.
  • Notifications, Inbox, and a number of other features will be dropped.
  • A bunch of small features, nothing to fancy.
