Haulix Weekly Update #136: “Sit perfectly still. Only I may dance.”

Hello, everyone! We hope this update finds you staying cool during the height of summer heat. our ACs have been on overdrive, just like our development team. There are a lot of exciting reveals on the horizon for our team, and in this update we will give you a few hints about all we have in store. First, let’s all take a few minutes to relax and enjoy this great song:

As I mentioned above, each and every weekend we like to take a brief break from our regularly scheduled programming to update and reflect on everything happening at Haulix HQ. We are far more than a music blog, as many of you already know, and posts like this give us an opportunity to share more our efforts with all of you.

Development news:

We know what you’re thinking, “Is this another update about how the new version of Haulix is coming along, but still not ready for public consumption?” The answer is yes AND no. The platform is actually nearly complete at this point, but unfortunately we do have a bit more work to do before pushing this massive platform overhaul out to the general public. Our entire team has spent the last several days testing the new platform, and though it looks great there are several small hiccups to the UI that we are still trying to iron out. Our hope, and this is just a hope right now, is to have the entire platform ready for launch by next Friday. If that happens and we have the team available to push it live then we will launch that very day. If not, then we will take a few more days and make sure we got it right. 

We know some of you have started to grow impatient with our constant delays, but trust us when we say we feel the same. We want this platform out just as much, if not more than you do, and we are doing everything in our power to make that happen as soon as possible. 

Blog news: 

Though we have admittedly put our blogging efforts on the backburner while working to finish the new platform we did find time to push out several posts this week that we feel are quite important. Some of those articles focus on the responsibilities of journalists granted access to live events, the need to ignore hate born out of ignorance, and – of course – the continuation of our popular podcast, Inside Music. If you missed anything as of late, especially our podcasts, please head over to our archive and catch up ASAP.

That is all we have for today. Enjoy your weekend, everyone!

Best –
