Yes, it's incredibly overdue, but it's finally released. This is basically just a bugfix and security release. It's released in both the full download version, and also a diff installation that you can overwrite an existing 1.0.2 installation with only changed files. The security issues were not major by any means, but it's still good to patch XSS issues. The ones we had were non-permanent and didn't cause any damage to your site, but they still needed addressing. The changelog goes as follows...
Version 1.0.3 "Kauai" -- Jan 18 2007 ----------------- - Fixed several non-permenant XSS vulnerabilities - Fixed issue with breadcrumbs plugin displaying root node multiple times - Fixed issue with multiple events being entered - Removed global references to $db from the admin and include.php - Added a "Modify Events" permission - Added event for "Change Group Permissions" - Added ability to select a file for the Link content type - Added ability to specify default boilerplate page content - Fixed print plugin output so that it's xhtml compliant - Added text direction to languages for suppot of languages like Hebrew and Arabic - Fixed issue where 2 installs on the same domain shared login sessions - Fixed issue with contact form with pretty_urls turned on - Fixed issue with LoadStylesheets() not loading the modified date - Changed search schema layout. Now allows for expiration dates on entries - Changed the icon for global content so that it doesn't look like the Gentoo logo - Fixed issue with expanding content in the content list when user didn't have the Add Page perission - Added catpcha module support to the contact_form plugin (you still need to manually install the Captcha module for this to work) - Added messages when admin log is cleared - Much much moreEnjoy!

Browsing thru the development part of the CMS Made Simple website yesterday I noticed that there are almost 100.000 downloads of the CMS Made Simple Core. With the release of 1.0.3 It cant take long before it reaches this magical number. With the plans of CMSMS 2.0 coming with all the nice new features it can only get better. Off course it will take a long time before stable 2.0 series will be released but I cant wait for the first beta's to be released. So I would like to take this first blog entry for me as an opportunity to congratulate all the people that supported CMS Made Simple, whether that is with development, time in the forums, donating or just by using it. More serious entries will follow soon! Regards, Signex / Benjamin

Hi all, It has come to my attention that one of the biggest topics on the forum regarding CMSMS is a speed issue. Although 2.0 will have a page caching feature, 1.0.2 can suffer sometimes from slow page loads. To combat this, you should try uninstalling and deleting all unnecessary modules that you have in your setup. This can quite often lead to a nice speedup! Don't forget that custom tags that are installed can slowdown page loads and also unused translations... In the meantime, there is also a tag available which replaces the current content tag with ccontent. This caches the content and has resulted in a nice speedup on the sites I have tested it on. Thanks to cyberman for this! To download the cache tags, please goto http://dev.cmsmadesimple.org/projects/cache/ Bear in mind that you will have to alter the template and/or stylesheet that your site uses to make the cache tags work! Right then, till the release of 2.0, bear these points in mind to keep your site nice and responsive... Regards Ade (3dcandy)
