New features coming in May

I wanted to let you guys know in advance that there will be no new features released for Wishlings until May. There are two reasons for this:

1. I'm studying for my Zend Certification
Although I've been a professional PHP programmer for over 5 years, the Zend Certification is quite tough. I need to pass and get it out of the way. February is dedicated to studying for the exam.

2. Converting Wishlings to a PHP Framework
Wishlings is written in Ruby on Rails, which is a lovely framework. However, I'm really a Ruby on Rails novice/intermediate, which means development usually takes longer than it should. I haven't decided which framework to use but it'll be something with an MVC architecture like CodeIgniter. I expect this conversion to take up to 2 months.

The rest of the year will be dedicated to Wishlings development.
