Ladies & Gentlemen,
The wait is over!
EdB has commanded an immediate release. Here it is! ;)
Feel free to download it now and give it a test drive. A lot has changed!!!
In case you've not been following along lately, here are a few posts detailing some of the new features:
- New admin interface
- Enhanced configuration options
- Skins 2.0
- User permissions 2.0
- And there's more... much more! Look at the changelog in the download! ;)
This version is functional enough for us to run it on production on at least a dozen sites. However it has not been extensively tested in all different scenarios. You may run into obscure bugs and you're kindly invited to report them.
You should also be advised that the skinning API in this release is not final. That is the main reason why we call it an ALPHA release. So if you really don't like updating skins, you might want to wait a little. But if you like being on the edge, you definitely wanna check this out! (skin upgrade details here).
Other than that, let us know what you think!
At this stage we cannot add new features before issuing a stable release. We can however polish what we have in order to make it as user/blogger friendly as possible. Your feedback is welcome.
PS: Translators may wish to start localizing...
Wow … congratulations, Francois !!!!
I have been waiting for this. I am downloading as I write this. :)
Thanks for all the effort.

Hendra, this does have part of the photoblogging I know you’ve been waiting for. I still have to make it easier to use though. But we’re getting there ;)
So any point for me to upgrade my gallery plugin for b2evo v2.0 then?
Francois, Wow !!! I say, great job. And Thanx EdB for the push :-)
I just started building a blog for a pal who is a Yoga teacher - she’s jus getting hooked to the blogging circuit. :-). I’m installing Chicago.
I got one of those queries that pop up at 5am befor one retires to bed….Do you think I’d be required to make some major changes once the Stable ver is released ?
Keep Rocking and keep the Party alive…
Who cares if its alpha? :p
It’s “b2evolution", that name alone merits it to be trustable. ^_^
And been playing with the bleeding edge version for awhile.
Wow! I have been anxiously waiting for it. Cheers for all you guys! I just downloaded Chicago and I am about to install and start modifying my skin. :) I can never fully express my gratitude for the b2evo team. You all rock!
I did some skin-updating for the pre-alpha B2evo, I’d love to have some feedback.
Can’t wait to try it out–and thanks for naming this release after my home town! :)
wow wow wow … great job! I will check it out in the noon.
thanks a lot to all at b2evo!
thats it……… thanks…… very very nice…
and I want to know when you release beta or stable version and v2 plugns. because most v1 plugins doesnt work with v2.
