First of all, many thanks to you, the Zotero user community, for helping to shape Zotero into a great tool. More than the recognition from numerous organizations (like PC Magazine’s recent (re-)stamp of approval), it’s the forum posts, developer contributions, and e-mails from you that we prize above all. It’s clear that “you like us, you really like us!”, and we are working hard to make Zotero into a tool that continues to address your needs and desires.
Here at Zotero Central, a lot has been going on. Whether making Zotero more extensible or ensuring compatibility with Firefox 3, we are busy building away. Two major milestones are now within our sights: server-based syncing of Zotero data and group-managed Zotero collections. We’re also working to make it easier for the user community to contribute to Zotero development. You can read more about the releases and plans on our development roadmap.
We’re very excited about the next year and hope you are too. As always, feel free to let us know what you think in the forums.
