Ladies & gentlemen,
Though we're a little bit ashamed it took so long, we're also proud to announce that we're finally back with a brand new release and a load of brand new features.
The much anticipated Phoenix release is now available at SourceForge, you can get it here.
The main new features are:
- File manager
- Mailing lists/Subscriptions for new posts and/or new comments
- Group based blog permissions with presets for new users
- Enhanced user interface
The multiple domain support is still experimental and will work well only under specific conditions (you'll have to use the forums for more on that...)
This release is a real collaborative work with at least 15 contributors involved, some developping, some testing, some debugging, some validating... Many thanks to all of them!
This is an ALPHA release. This means it's far from perfect... but still, we already like it, use it, dig it... as it is! We only recommend that you upgrade if you are comfortable with patching bugs manually in case of need. Otherwise you should probably wait for the Phoenix Beta or Final.
This is a FEATURE release, not a PERFORMANCE release. So we don't recommend that you upgrade if you are running a production site with several thousands of users, of blogs or tens/hundreds of thousands of pges served every day. The "Dawn" release will still do a better job for this. This is not a promise, but we expect to come back to similar performance levels with version 1.7 or 1.8 .
