As previously said the move to a new site had been postponed to 2018. The main issue regarding the new site was to decide what CMS (content management system) to use. Though it had been clear that WordPress was an absolute no-way, there was no clear idea what else.
I have considered a move to Drupal, as many people like that CMS. However, as a C++/Python developer with a moderate dislike of PHP, I have finally decided to build the new site in Django [CMS]. Begin 2018 I will start with building the new site and I intend to launch the new site around July 20.
Once the new site will be launched, the current site will remain on-line for at least a year. However, comments will be closed and all links will direct to the new site.
