What's happening with the Meta and Social tab?


Just wondering, what's happening with the Meta and Social tab?

I've hit two problems with the Blog App, relating directly to the meta tab. Both problems have been reported by other Perch developers.

  1. Blog: Categories disappear when meta is saved?
  2. Blog reverting to default template?

The last time I asked about this the response was:

... I’ve designed and engineered a completely new way of dealing with extended properties in the form of field groups. That will eliminate this problem...

I know dates are never given for upcoming features, I appreciate the reasons why. You don't want people buying Perch on the assumption it will have a certain feature by a set date.

Are we close to getting the extended properties/field groups update?

What's happening is that in a future version of Blog, the Meta and Social table will be replaced by a field group. All the fields will then be on one page and the entire class of bug that relates to fields being split across two pages goes away.

I don't know when that will be or even if the new version of Blog will be compatible with the old or will require some sort of content and template migration.
