You will find details about this new release here.
With this new version, we are releasing features that didn’t need to wait for version 7.0 to come out. Yes, v7 is coming soon. It’s just that it’s such a major thing (really !) that it has a lot of little bugs to iron out.
Now, this seemingly small 6.10.3 release is actually a major milestone in b2evolution’s shift from glorified blogs to full-featured Content Management System. In this release you can define Item Types with very refined custom fields. You can then create Items of the desired types. You can use the custom fields in various ways (either in your content or in your skin code) and you can even compare items of same or different types with each other (b2evolution will automatically produce detailed comparison tables like this one).
Once again, we are describing big concepts here and we should actually show some examples. We’re guilty of that again. We’d like to promise we’ll solve that once 7.0 is out, but history tells us we’ll likely be absorbed into v8 by then…
OK, I don’t know how, but we really need to sort that out!!
