pMachine (now EllisLab) is a privately-held technology company, founded by Rick Ellis, that develops web publishing software.

The first developed tool was a publishing app called pMachine, which was released in 2001 and was available in two flavors: Free and Pro, the latter requiring a paid license.

pMachine “is a flexible blogging system that supports advanced features like multiple blogs, moblogging, and much more. pMachine adapts to your vision and needs, giving you complete control over the presentation and the interactivity of your site“.

On January 15, 2005, development on pMachine was discontinued; pMachine Pro is now available for download free of charge and continues to find a large audience.

[ExpressionEngine]

EllisLab (formerly pMachine) is a privately-held technology company, founded by Rick Ellis, that develops web publishing software.

The first developed tool was a publishing app called pMachine, which was released in 2001. pMachine is no longer under development, but is now freely available and continues to find a large audience.

The next-generation publishing system, ExpressionEngine, was released in February of 2004, and was initially available with paid-only licenses.

Starting with ExpressionEngine 1.4, released on December 16, 2005, ExpressionEngine comes in three versions:

* EE Core (free): Limited features, no tech support, for personal (non-commercial) or non-profit use only.

* EE Personal (paid): All features and tech support, for personal or non-profit use only.

* EE Commercial (paid): All features and tech support, for commercial use.

ExpressionEngine is a PHP and MySQL application. To determine if your hosting environment can support EE, a simple wizard is available for download on the ExpressionEngine website.

EllisLab news

[ExpressionEngine]

The pMachine company, makers of ExpressionEngine, has been rebranded as EllisLab.

Why the name change? pMachine was an outgrowth of our first, and at that time (six years ago), only product. Both our company and software were pMachine. A couple years later we released ExpressionEngine, which addressed some serious limitations of pMachine. EE essentially made pM (the software) obsolete. So when we set out to define our 2007 goals we decided it was time to move ExpressionEngine to its own site.

Actually four new websites: EllisLab, ExpressionEngine, Engine Hosting, and CodeIgniter have been launched and, yes, they all run from a single installation of ExpressionEngine.

For additional details, please refer to the EllisLab new websites announcement.

Serendipity 1.1.2

March 1st, 2007 No comments

[Serendipity]

Because of an invalid category ID, Serendipity tries to show entries for that category, but the resulting SQL string contains an empty statement which makes the MySQL parser fail, and report the error on-screen.

Even though we consider this issue to be fairly low-impact, Serendipity 1.1.2 has been released because of this, mainly to assure the public that we have addressed the issue. It is not critical that you upgrade to that release. If you do, it is sufficient to update the include/functions_entries.inc.php file.

For further details, please refer to the release announcement.
