[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]

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Please note that the Drupal 4.6 branch is no longer maintained, so switching to Drupal 4.7 or 5 is strongly advised.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

January 14th, 2007 No comments

[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.
