b2evolution version 3.3.1-stable “Los Angeles” has been released!
As they say, it’s the most advanced b2evolution… yet! But it’s even better than that, this version has gone though an extensive beta and release-candidate process in order to ensure that upgrades from versions 2.x will run flawlessly! (Can be done in less than a minute! – Just make sure your web host is up to date and your account runs at least MySQL 4.1, if not 5.x; if not ask them how to upgrade.)
Note that it’s also possible to upgrade from versions 1.x but you will need to use a new evoskin v2/3 and recustomize it to your site design. Either way, just follow the upgrade instructions in infex.html in the downloadable ZIP file.
Skins and Plugins from version 2.x will work on 3.x. Skins developed specifically for 3.x offer additional features (such as intro & featured posts).
Language packs from 2.x will work on 3.x if you add a locale definition file. Have a peek into the /locales folder or download a 3.x language pack here.
This stable 3.x release meets the standards and functionality I took out of my insanely long todo list end of 2008, while still living in Los Angeles (hence, the name of the relase). For upcoming versions, please send feature requests via twitter starting like this ” @b2evolution wish: ” – one request per user in 140 chars or less! That’s the rule of the game
Tons of new features!
