Finally, after several weeks of effort I was able to push the first version of Photonic out! It is now available for download from WordPress.
I had to drop some features, like some JS libraries, but at least I could get it working to a very large extent. Also, unlike Suffusion, I hope to keep tight control around the documentation for the plugin. Do take some time to visit the Photonic home-page and let me know what you think.
Support for Photonic will be handled through the Aquoid Support Forum.
I did notice after uploading the plugin that while the texts were translation capable, I had forgotten to include a PO file for the plugin. I will add it in the next release.
