Yair, this reply is a bit meta, a post about progress about posting progress but eh
I agree, the front page can look dead, especially when we don't even always post about stable releases. So what's in hand?
1. There's no plan for a development blog.
As suggested earlier, github is by far the best way to see development
At time of writing, 193 Pull Requests closed since April 2018. Most of these are successful patches that have been merged to master (very few rejected)
See the list here https://github.com/OpenTTD/OpenTTD/pull ... s%3Aclosed
2. The website is being re-built as (mostly) a simple static site, using the Jekyll site generator.
- makes it easier to post to the site when we want to, and to give access to more people for posting (such as kamnet)
- makes the site faster to serve and less resource intensive than the current site
- is a test for a much bigger rebuild/streamlining of OpenTTD's extensive web infrastructure
Currently, development on website is found here (but will likely be moved to OpenTTD github organisation in future) https://github.com/TrueBrain/OpenTTD-website
3. There's no current plan to redesign the visual style of the website.
But we might move some content/links around and make it easier to find the development feed on github.
