No, don’t panic! This was just an April Fools’ Day joke.
After our 1st preCICE Workshop we are working full-speed on improving aspects of preCICE that we did not want to touch before getting enough feedback from the community. With the workshop done, we are now confident that we can move to the right direction.
In the “marketing” World-Café table it was made clear that preCICE needs a fresh look. Therefore, we decided to change the style of the logo to something bolder:
We plan to replace the logo with the new version everywhere, a process which may take a few weeks to complete, as we are everyday discovering new communication channels and other tools that we are using or it would be nice to expand to.
Furthermore, restructuring our website and documentation is a clear next step. However, keep in mind that preCICE is an open-source project, meaning that the time we can invest on it is very limited. To expand our industrial outreach, we are also converting our documentation to German. To save maintenance time, we will drop the English version soon after. We have also decided to eventually move all the documentation into Doxygen (with additional HTML elements), to reduce the maintenance effort.
