Serendipity 1.1 released

December 28th, 2006 No comments


The Serendipity Team has released Serendipity version 1.1 to the public.

This new version is aimed for feature enhancement and stability consolidation. The most important change is the overhaul of the media database. This means that you can now store and customize meta properties easily – store descriptions, EXIF-Tags and keywords which you can later see and search in your database.

The other important change is more granular plugin permission management. You can enable/disable certain markup-plugins on a per-entry basis, and allow/forbid specific usergroups to access certain plugins.

For the developers among us, it might be of interest to note that Serendipity now also supports easy custom template-engine support. Tired of Smarty? You can also use a plain old PHP template emulation or even a XSLT-transformation layer.

To learn more, please refer to the release announcement.

Joomla! 1.0.12

December 25th, 2006 No comments


Joomla! 1.0.12 has been released today. Features include many general bug fixes, several low level security fixes, a full security audit of SQL queries and SSL switchover support.

Although this release contains several security fixes, as they are of a low level nature, this release is still being characterized as a Stability Release. If you are running a version of Joomla! older than 1.0.11, you should upgrade immediately to at least Joomla! 1.0.11 as that release addressed several important security issues. If you are using Joomla! 1.0.11, we recommend that you upgrade to 1.0.12 as it addresses several long standing bugs and several low level security issues.

This version of Joomla! is intended to be the last release in the 1.0.x series. The 1.0.x is now in security mode which means that we will not be releasing any more stability updates. There will only be another version in this series if a critical security vulnerability is discovered.

To learn more, please read the release announcement.

Geeklog 1.4.1 RC1

December 17th, 2006 No comments


The first release candidate for Geeklog 1.4.1 is now available for download.

While this is not the final 1.4.1 yet, we would like to ask you to download it and try it out to help us track down any remaining issues. Please also keep in mind that once 1.4.1 is out, the support for Geeklog 1.3.11, and therefore for the entire 1.3.x line, will end. So now would be a good time to start planning for an upgrade of your site.

If all goes according to plan, the final 1.4.1 should be ready before the end of the year. For additional information, please read the release announcement.
