It's been a while since I posted any update on TrendWeight and so I want to take a moment at the start of a new year to share the latest...

New Features?

So what new stuff is coming for TrendWeight? The short answer is: not much. More or less, TrendWeight has all of the features that I want it to have (i.e. it's pretty close to "done".) I know many of you have made some great suggestions for ways that it could be enhanced in new directions by collecting new types of information (e.g. calories consumed each day, etc) and correlating that new information with the observed changes in weight, but after some consideration, I have decided to keep TrendWeight simple and focused on just what it does today.

There are still a small handful of minor improvements that I really want to make, but I don't plan to take TrendWeight in any significant new direction.

Technical Infrastructure

On the technical side of things, for a long time, I've been wanting to work on a significant rewrite of TrendWeight, but I'm not sure when that will get moving. Frankly, there is really no particular reason for the rewrite other than the fact that I thought it would have been fun to use rewriting TrendWeight as an excuse to play with some new technologies.

Never fear...

This post may come off a little bit negative, but I do not want people to get the impression that TrendWeight is going away. I have no intention to stop supporting TrendWeight, to stop fixing any bugs that crop up, or to take the servers down, so you can rest assured that the functionality you are using today isn't going anywhere.
