Open Y 2.0 - Decoupled Distribution
While early builds of Open Y served well for large YMCAs, installing and configuring a new Open Y site was still out of the reach of many smaller associations due to limitations on budget, staff, and technology.
A new version of Open Y could make use of everything we have learned through working with dozens of YMCAs and learning about their specific needs. A focus on a solid, yet flexible architecture would not only allow us to implement a faster and simpler set-up for Open Y, but would also provide a dramatically improved foundation for future improvements.
Open Y 2.0 was released in February 2019 as a result of a collaboration between Open Y core partners. This is a major milestone for the Open Y project. In addition to reducing the expenses related to the installation and maintenance of Open Y so that it is more accessible to small and medium-sized YMCAs, Open Y 2.0 included several new features, including a full-featured activity finder and a foundation for future growth.
