A new blog post about this has just been posted on the Foundry site, but I wanted to cross post here as well, because honestly I’m pretty excited to start sharing this information with you all! The blog post:
I’m really excited to announce that the release of Foundry 3 is just around the corner. It as been a long time coming. Over the next week or so I’ll be posting several new blog entries about this major upgrade, where I’ll be going into much more depth about what is to come, and what you can expect.
I’ll keep a list of the blog posts here as they are released, at the bottom of this post.
Shiny New Icon
I wanted to start things off though, before I dive into all of those details in future posts, with some quick sneak peeks. First off, I’d like to present the new Foundry icon, which you can see at the top of this post. This icon was crafted by the incomparable Matthew Skiles and I think it fits Foundry perfectly.
Quick Promo Video
I’ve also put together a quick promo video for Foundry 3 that I’d like to share with you all. You’ll get a quick peek at just a few of the many new things in store in Foundry 3. Trust me, there’s a lot of new stuff you’re going to want to check out in the coming days — there’s just so much to touch on.
Throughout the upcoming blog posts, documentation, videos, etc you’ll hear or see me referring to Stacks addons as “tools” instead of calling them “stacks.” I want to clarify why this is — In the past users of the Stacks plugin have had a hard time deciphering the difference between “Stacks” and “stacks” in the community. At some point “stacks” with a lowercase “s” became the go to for referring to addons that you use within the “Stacks,” capital “S”, plugin for RapidWeaver.
Since Foundry has a very blacksmith / forge vibe with its site and logo I decided to simply call them tools going forward. This should help clairfy things a bit and clear up confusion between “Stacks” and “stacks.” So starting now I’ll be referring to Stacks addons for Foundry as tools and hopefully as time goes on this will help clear up that confusion for new and existing users alike.
I’ve been hard at work on this update for over 1.5 years now, both on the code and the extensive documentation. While Foundry 3 retains its easy-to-use drag-and-drop nature, I’ve worked hard reimagining and re-engineering the all aspects of Foundry from the ground up and cultivating new tools and features for beginners and experienced users alike.
I hope you’re as excited to learn about Foundry 3 as I am to bring this new update to you. Stay tuned for more in-depth posts about this giant-sized update.
