WordPress 2.0.7

January 15th, 2007 No comments

[WordPress]

Recently a bug in certain versions of PHP came to our attention that could cause a security vulnerability in your blog … so we’ve decided to release 2.0.7 to fix the PHP security problem and the FeedBurner issue that was in 2.0.6. It is recommended that everyone running WordPress 2.0.6 or lower upgrade to this new version.

The list of files that have changed since 2.0.6, and the changes that have been made, are detailed in the release announcement.

And just as a reminder, the next major version of WordPress (2.1) is due out by the end of the month, but the 2.0 branch of WordPress will continue to be maintained for several years.

Drupal 5.0 released

[Drupal]

After 8 months of development we are ready to release Drupal 5.0 to the world. Today is also Drupal’s 6th birthday, so the timing could not be more perfect. Drupal 4.0 was released in 2002 and finally we feel confident to increase the major version number from 4 to 5.

The list of changes in drupal 5.0 includes usability improvements and many new features for users and developers. You can find all the details in the release announcement (and a nice post on Drupal’s sixth birthday in the personal website of Dries Buytaert).

Please note that the Drupal 4.6 branch is no longer maintained, so switching to Drupal 4.7 or 5 is strongly advised.

LifeType

[LifeType]

The LifeType project started in February 2003 when its leader, Oscar Renalias, needed a set of dynamic scripts for his personal web page. Even though he did not know about the idea of weblogs back then, the outcome of the first iteration of the project already resembled one.

A few weeks later Francesc, another of the founding members, suggested that developing a blog with support for multiple users and blogs could be a better idea, and so pLog 0.1 was released on September 2, 2003, featuring most of the features that are still part of the core nowadays: multi-user and multi-blog from the ground up, template engine, localizable and extensible via plugins.

pLog 1.0 was released in April 2005, and later that year, because of trademark issues, pLog changed its name into LifeType. LifeType is a PHP and MySQL application, and is licensed under the GNU GPL (General Public License).

DotNetNuke

[DotNetNuke]

DotNetNuke was born on December 24, 2002, when Shaun Walker released a modified version of the Microsoft IBuySpy Portal Solution (IBS) Starter Kit.

The original IBS Starter Kit’s goal was to demonstrate how ASP.NET and the .NET framework could be used to construct dynamic and data-driven portal applications.

The modified version, named IBuySpy Workshop, included a variety of enhancements over the original IBS code, including the ability to support multiple portals from a single database/codebase.

A few months later the application was renamed DotNetNuke. The name was chosen to recall the .NET framework, coupled with the term Nuke made popular by existing frameworks such as PHP-Nuke and PostNuke.

A full account of DotNetNuke’s formation and background – written by Shaun Walker – is the focus of Chapter 1 in the book “DotNetNuke ASP.NET Portals” available through Amazon.com.

DotNetNuke is released under a BSD license.

[WordPress]

WordPress 2.0.6 has been released.

We have a pretty important release available for everyone, it includes an important security fix and it’s recommended that everyone upgrade. This is the latest release in our stable 2.0 line, which we’ve committed to maintaining for several more years.

As a side note, this is probably our last release before 2.1 is out, which will be our first major feature release in quite a while. 2.1 just entered beta stage, so if you’re interested in helping out with that process consider joining our beta group.

For additional details, please refer to the release announcement.

MDLite RC released

January 4th, 2007 No comments

[MDPro]

MDPro Lite, alias MDLite, Release Candidate is ready.

After a lot of work and a lot of time, finally MDLite, for now just in RC release, is ready. To help us make the final release as soon as possible, please download it, use it, test it and report any bugs, and/or your comments and suggestions. You should also be aware that development of MDPro 1.076 has stopped, as we will turn our full attention to preparing MD 1.1. Any additional security fixes for MD 1.076 will only continue for a short time.

Another important note about MDLite is that MDLite represents a transitional development as we move toward producing MD 1.1 with a new core. As explained further below, we have rewritten a large amount of code, made it simple and easy to use, added documentation, optimized performance etc. With MDLite and MD 1.1 you will see that we have changed our philosophy and have focused on creating a small core to allow users to install ONLY the modules, blocks and addons they need.

For more information, please read the release announcement.
