Taiga Abies Bifolia Release (1.6.0)

Taiga Abies Bifolia This release we pay tribute to our North American users by Christening our next release, with one of their native species, Abies Bifolia. Or as the less scientific amongst us would call it, “that Christmas tree in the corner.” These are the species that you will find yourself looking to avoid if you’re still planning to get in some last minute spring skiing in the Rocky Mountains. Not much else to remark about this beautiful fir, though wikipedia does have an interesting tidbit about some indian tribes who drank or washed in Abies Bifolia for purification or to make their hair grow. Food for thought for those of us with receding (or receded) hairlines.

Taiga Picea Obovata Release (v1.2.0)

Taiga Day Picea Obovata, a name you won't ever forget! Or, “P.O." as we call it internally, is of course the name of our newest software release, and the name of the Siberian Spruce that lives in the Taiga from The Urals all the way east to the Magadan Oblast (where, incidentally we don’t have any users, though we do have almost 2,000 in other parts of Russia.)

Our first TAIGA DAY

Taiga Day The week before we launched we had planned an off-site. We wanted to celebrate the way we work and how strongly we feel about free & open source software, about the community and what makes a team truly remarkable.
