Exponent 0.96.5

November 1st, 2006 No comments


The Exponent Development Team is pleased to announce the final release for 0.96.5.

This version includes various enhancements to the system, the largest being the initial implementation of the system-level language subsystem. This implementation isolates all system-level strings (e.g.: error messages, administrative wording, etc) into a language pack, which allows site owners to translate their core site into different languages.

Other changes in this release include performance enhancements and many security fixes.

GreyMatter 1.6.1

October 30th, 2006 No comments


From Pete Finnigan’s Web Development Blog:

The first upgrade of GreyMatter since 1.3.1 in 2003 has been released yesterday on the new GreyMatter Forums. The new version is 1.6.1 and it’s a first developers release aimed at those who want to add new features and functions to GreyMatter.

The focus of the release has been the beginning of refactoring the code to make it easier to add features by separating out the logic for file access and web access amongst others. This will make it easier to add database support in the future. Version 1.6.1 is the first of many new updates to GreyMatter.

GM 1.6.1 includes many other improvements; for details you can also visit the new GreyMatter Dev Forums.

Textpattern grew out of the system used to publish Textism – the personal site of Dean Allen – and was made available to testers in alpha versions as early as 2001. The early alpha versions were followed by a series of beta releases which saw more widespread use, and which were themselves superseded by a series of “gamma” releases which expanded and refined Textpattern’s capabilities.

In September of 2004, Release Candidate 1 for Textpattern 1.0 was released. In a somewhat unorthodox move, Textpattern continued to accumulate features as the second, third, fourth and fifth release candidates were made public.

The fifth release candidate, however, included a notice that no new features would be added before the 1.0 release, and two weeks later, on August 14, 2005, the first officially stable version of Textpattern was released. Due to the extended development process – many of the previous releases, even before the 1.0 candidates, were widely considered stable and mature enough for production use – this release was named Textpattern 4.0 rather than Textpattern 1.0.

This history of Textpattern comes from Wikipedia. Textpattern is a PHP – MySQL application, and is distributed under the GNU GPL (General Public License).
