b2evo version 1.8.2 “Serenity” has been released!
This is the first release labeled as “final/stable” since version 0.9.2!
If you have an older version, now is a good time to upgrade! (instructions here).
You may also want to check for b2evo extensions.
Here’s what’s been added lately:
We have updated all our info pages about translations, locales and language packs:
Of course, there may still be unanswered questions. So, if after reading those pages, something is still unclear, please fire up your questions. We'll do our best to include answers!
We are pleased to announce immediate availablity of b2evolution 1.8.1 "Milestone".
This is a Release Candidate. This means that it is ready for production and basically the only thing missing is translations/localizations into more languages (English, French & German included).
Translators, now would be a good time to update translations.
Also, we are looking for someone to manage a central repository of translations/localizations/language packs (or whatever you want to call it). The idea would be to have something like locales.b2evolution.net linked into here.
Of course we would prefer someone who is doing localization himself, who has some minimal clue about UTF-8 and various charsets, who isn't afraid of uploading translations into CVS and who is willing to spend some time communicating with the translators (who will send you random .po files without any identification if you don't ask!)
Okay, that's already a lot! You could also host the site, but we'll handle that part if you don't want to
A few people have been asking for this for quite a long time...
... and today i'm pleased to announce that I finally put up a small site for evoCore, the PHP framework at the heart of b2evolution.
It's not much, but it's something!
If you're not reading this in an aggregator you have probably already noticed the new site layout!
It is a work in progress. The navigation needs to be redone and many pages still have the old layout. But someone once said "release early, release often". And that site has definitely been lacking some new releases for some time...
Feel free to comment...
PS: the site now runs on b2evolution version 1.9
