bepress boasts a 20+ person engineering, systems, and product team, exclusively committed to building, maintaining and improving the platform. Their work includes identifying and fixing issues, seamlessly upgrading the platform, and researching and developing new products and features that will benefit our community of users. We follow a fast-paced development cycle and release new features every few months. We favor features that (no matter how big or daunting) establish and increase the relevance of the repository across your entire community of users.
bepress development uses a continuous integration and deployment process for software development and release. We are able to roll out bug fixes and new features as soon as they ready and tested. We ensure that all customizations and locally saved templates are maintained through any software upgrades.
