Updated by marco on

After over a year in development and a skipped internal release (2.5.0), the latest and greatest in PHP web site development technology is once again available to a clamoring public.

You should probably  Download it now.

New features in 2.6.0 (since 2.4.0) are:

  • File uploading fully integrated and worry-free
  • Image manipulation
  • Generalized form rendering
  • Previewing supported in almost all forms
  • Fully HTML 4.01 valid templates
  • Massively improved the “munger”; HTML and plain text support much more powerful formatting
  • Added icon and theme management (users and folders can have unique icons or avatars)
  • Generalized attachments suport (comments/entries/folders)
  • General support for “locations” so that a text block can refer to content without specifying exactly where it needs to be (e.g. to refer to a nested attachment)
  • More advanced searching (search on any and all fields)
  • Compressed files support
  • EXIF extraction support
  • Much more sophisticated subscriber options
  • Improved email generation (publishing generates table of contents for longer mails)
  • Draft mode supported in all applications
  • Much improved hierarchy for data objects (much easier to create non-application objects and reuse code)
  • Improved logging and developer tools for debugging/profiling
  • Template files are now easily overridable
  • Individual classes and renderers are also easily overridable (for plugins)
  • Integration into non-WebCore pages as easy as dropping in WebCore objects (location is automatically detected and adjusted)
  • Toolbars for objects are now in CSS-only drop-down menus (cleaner look)
  • Simplified configuration and customization
  • Drastically improved security and permissions granularity and application-specific customizability
  • Error handling and reporting much improved (including ‘retry’ and ‘debug’ modes)
  • Improved and extended platform-independent file and url handling
  • …and probably much, much more that I can’t remember right now…

The application have also improved, inheriting all the features listed above and adding:

  • Albums has much improved album options
  • Albums has a batch upload feature (extracting images from a ZIP file and automatically creating thumbnails and assigning dates)
  • Albums can now upload pictures/extract EXIF date/etc.
  • Projects supports testing and release dates and sorts intelligently to show the most important jobs first
  • Projects has a release wizard now to show exactly what will happen when a release is shipped
  • … and again, much, much more…

Did I mention that all this is available for  Download?
