Announcing CMS Made Simple 1.4-beta2

Posted July 20, 2008 by Robert Campbell

Here it is.... This beta should encompass most of the bugs or issues found in the first beta, and a few more even. We've cleaned up the Search module a bit, added some enhancements to assist people in dealing with the new template processing order, and tweaked the installer some more. I expect this beta to last for about a week (or maybe till the 2nd of August). And I hope that this beta will be the last one in the 1.4 series. Then we can focus on 2.0 work for a while. The first beta was downloaded in excess of 200 times (not including language packs or checksum files)... and I would really like for this beta to meet or exceed that total. The community has been doing great work with testing here, please keep up the good work. I'd like to also thank the members of the dev team and the community that have put in considerable time in developing, testing, finding bugs, confirming them, then testing, and confirming the fixes, and sometimes even fixing the bugs themselves..... The community we have is growing stronger by the day, and everybody benefits from the active participation that these people give. I'd like to thank these people (and I hope I didn't leave anybody out, because this release has had contributions from a large amount of people.): RonnyK, Reneh, Nuno, Silmilariion, Alby, _SjG_, tyman000, Cyberman, and of course Ted. Now, another important note: A long standing issue with links in translatable strings appears to have been solved (many thanks to _SjG_).... this means that people will have to go through and review all of their translations, and update any strings that have links in them... please, make the effort to go through everything in the core, CMSInstaller, and any core modules. I still would not recommend using this beta (just because it is beta) on a production site, but if you are in the middle of a development project, or starting a new site... please feel free to use the beta. We are in feature cutoff (we have been since the first beta came out)... and plan that the changes from this point forward will be minimal. Of course, you can download the files from here Again, thanks to everybody.... what a fantastic community this is.

CMS Made Simple 1.3.1 - Security Release

Posted June 24, 2008 by Robert Campbell

After too long of a delay, due to vacations and time constraints, we've released CMS 1.3.1 This is a security release and we recommend everybody upgrade their sites to CMS 1.3.1 as soon as possible. This release completely removes the postlet file upload stuff from the file manager. It is the postlet stuff that has been causing the problems in the latest releases, and we finally decided just to nuke it. Then, after waiting for a developer to get back from holiday, we had to discuss it, test it, merge it, test it again.... Yes, this release has taken too long to come out, and we apologize for that... we don't normally do this, and we didn't intend for this to happen. This release should resolve all known security releases. It can be downloaded from here

Upcoming Downtime - 21 Jun 2008

Posted June 16, 2008 by Ted Kulp

Hey all, Continuation of the site moving process will be this weekend. The main site, wiki, forums and module manager will be down starting at about 11 am UTC (7am EDT) and be down for 1 to 2 hours. The majority of this time will be transferring files (the forum database is HUGE) and waiting for DNS changes to propagate. Everything should feel a lot snapper after the move. If there are problems, schedule changes or whatever, I'll post an update here. Thanks! Ted

Posted June 7, 2008 by Robert Campbell

Thanks to some fantastic effort by the development team, the translators, and testers, I'm pleased to announce CMS Made Simple 1.3 This was originally going to be just a marginal improvement to hold people over till CMS 2.0 comes out, but we just kinda got carried away. There are new versions of the TinyMCE, ModuleManager, Search, MenuManager, News and FileManager modules, a massive improvement in translations, an automatic update notification mechanism, bugfixes, and lots of other tweaks to help you in your projects. For this reason, there will be no 'diff' packages. Here's a copy of the changelog for this version: Version 1.3 "Cuba" -- June 7, 2008 ----------------- - Massive updates to translations - Includes TinyMCE 2.4.0b5 (this should be a release version by the time 1.3 comes out) Note: The wysiwyg editor is not called TinyMCE-Adv or TinyMCE-Basic anymore, - Includes FileManager 0.3.0b2 (this should be a release version by the time 1.3 comes out) - Includes News 2.8 - Fixes for pretty urls - Adds news_extra and custom field support to the fesubmit action - Uses cms_html_entity_decode for php4 compatibility - Removes the News content type once and for all - Includes Search 1.5 - Adds the ability to change the search output on a per module basis - Adds an ability to track search words - Better templating for News - More - Includes MenuManager 1.5 - Pass all parameters to the menumanager template for easier customization - Fixes for has_children - Minor fixes - Includes ModuleManager 1.1.6 - Now indicates that a module available in the repository is incompatible with the current CMS version - A nice big notice on the top of the display about xml vs zip modules - Cleanup on uninstall - Includes a new admin theme generously donated by Nuno Costa - All plugins are now translatable - The title and sitename plugins now support the assign param - Adds two new plugins (redirect_page and redirect_url) - Debug mode now tweaks the display_errors and error levels in the admin section as well as in the frontend - Listcontent is now cleaned-up and has better security checks - Minor improvements to listmodules - Admin templates are now override-able by creating a matching file in module_custom//templates/
