As everyone on the CMap mailing list knows, CMap has not been updated in three years since the 1.01 release in July 2008. Last year I spent a few months kicking around some ideas for a 2.0 version, but I never had the sustained development time to really make it happen. I now am considering writing a grant to fund a couple years of full-time effort to produce a new 2.0 version with all the implied Web 2.0 goodness of a responsive, dynamic web application.
I would only want to ask for money if I believe there is a real need for a new version of CMap. I can find more than a dozen sites running some version of CMap, and I wonder if some or all of these would be interested in contributing ideas to a proposed 2.0 version and upgrading to a new version should it become available. If I could submit letters of support with my grant application or could show a real desire by the community to have a new version of the software as well as a list of requested improvements, I believe it would greatly help the chances for funding.
