It is needed to write a press release about the release of upp-602 and describing it's strengths.
Mainly: simplicity, productivity, cross-platform, BSD-license, Ide with debugger, layout designer, fast build-technology, etc.
The text should be written (or at least edited) by a native english person.
This press release should be sent to all major open-source sites.

Anybody volunteer?

Alternatively, we could create it her as collaborative effort...

First, we should find a good title, I think.
It should be very enthusiastic or sensational to get attention.
Some conservative "Ultimate++ 602 has been released" title is bad, I think.
You have to know, that upp is absolutely unknown yet.
Some good idea?

Well, I guess this one is too sensational, but what about something like:

C++ library puts .NET platform to the shame in terms of productivity

?

(On the second view, maybe we should not refer to .NET because of legal issues?).

Sounds very good Smile. Really Smile
I have a small change:

C++ library puts .NET and Java platform to the shame in terms of productivity

Well, maybe it would be smart to start the main text with what many will consider as disadvantage and mention "radically different design" or "breaking the rules" or something like that then...

Ultimate++ 602 - a new ferrari for C++: the winner but no attention

"Imagine a situation. After a race everyone's attention is not at the winner but at those finishing a way behind. This is what is happening with Ultimate++. Clear winner in productivity and simplicity to harness not only C++ but a large number of happy customers, Ultimate++ walks home almost unnoticed. In the meantime, some stone age dinosaurs like MFC and their clones eat the rest of the spectators..."

Something like this or more dramatic? Smile

Some sex and violence are missing only Smile

So to be more serious...

We should mention some "fast growing community" and "developed in silence for years" as well, to show, this is a serious thing.

Well, as this effort does not seem to advance, I am going for conservative fallback option:

Ultimate++ 602 was released.

Ultimate++ is a radical and innovative C++ platform whose number one priority is programmer productivity. Rapid development is achieved by the smart and aggressive use of C++ rather than through fancy code generators. Major new features of 602 release: new Report package, C++ refactoring and assistance (Assist++) optimized and extended, project organization and building improved.

What you think about submitting U++ to some of those sites which awards good deployments? U++ is a nice tool and can provide a good competition. Also you could include to your press release the title: "U++ award winner on debut" or something like that.

You get the idea, reaching out popularity by getting awards and trust out of users.

Sorry my english ignorance (what is actually meant by "deployment" here?), but I am not sure I understand. What sites you have on mind?

By deployment I meant about new software released, "deployed to public". Since you want to increase user interest in U++ I think it would be interesting and valid this idea of awards.

For instance Firefox, the web browser, got the best internet tool award from PC-Welt/2005.

Unfortunately since I never had any experience in submitting work to public and awards, I can not tell you much about it.
But it is common to find sites/&co. that encourages developers and other initiatives of giving awards to good software.

Good examples are Softpedia and PCworld. They let you to include an image and stuff like that. There are other initiatives (and less published like CNET download.com and linux world) but well, thats all I can virtually say about it.

About the english I guess it was my fault there. Most times I have to explain things about 2 times.
