We are preparing a huge update to the 1.0-dev (aka master) branch.

This update will make Zotonic compatible with Erlang OTP projects.
All modules and sites become OTP applications.

This BREAKS ALL existing Zotonic-master installs, so DO NOT UPGRADE!

And now for some Q&A.

What is changing?

 * All sites must become Erlang OTP applications
 * All modules must become Erlang OTP applications
 * Zotonic is being split up in different apps, for better re-use
 * All Zotonic parts are published as separate packages to hex.pm
 * Use the hex package manager for module installations
 * The zotonic umbrella project which can be used for core development
 * There will be separate “starter” projects for easy development
 * rebar3 templates for creating 

When will what happen?

In the coming days we will merge the OTP branch into master.
The pull request is: https://github.com/zotonic/zotonic/pull/1717

After this we will update with some missing pieces:

 - rebar3 templates https://github.com/zotonic/zotonic/issues/1737
 - hex for module installs https://github.com/zotonic/zotonic/issues/1742
 - user module/site handling with _checkouts 

After we added logging we can call it a release candidate.

What is the overall structure of a site/module?

Template, css, js etc. all move into the priv directory.
All Erlang source files move into the src directory


        mysite /
                src /
                        controllers / 
                        models /
                priv /
                        templates / 
                        lib /

We will keep you updated via the list.

Cheers, Marc
