Welcome to Geeklog Wednesday, May 22 2013 @ 07:55 AM EDT
The gl Labs Community is pleased to announce that glFusion v1.0.0 is now available for download. glFusion is built on the foundation of Geeklog v1.5.0, and brings additional style and functionality to your new or existing Geeklog-based site by including pre-installed plugins and the Nouveau theme. Plugins include: CAPTCHA, Bad Behavior2, Media Gallery, Forum, and FileMgmt. glFusion doesn't stop at just packaging things together, there are several enhancements under the hood that bring improved performance, scalability, and usability. We have also created a new online documentation wiki for glFusion for your reading pleasure.
Colors 1.5.0 is now available for download!
Green is the first color, blue, red, orange and a black and white version will be available soon.
This theme was developed by ::Ben from french portal www.geeklog.fr.
After almost 18 months in the making, Geeklog 1.5.0 is now officially out and available for download.
To recap: This version incorporates the results of the 2007 Google Summer of Code, namely:
A big round of applause please for Aaron, Matt, and Ramnath for adding these great new features to Geeklog. And a big thanks to Google for running the Summer of Code program and making all this possible!
Geeklog 1.5.0 also brings support for OpenID and LDAP, subcategories in the Links plugin, support for XHTML, and more.
We also owe you information about some security issues in Geeklog that we haven't disclosed yet: All Geeklog versions prior to 1.5.0 are vulnerable to cross-site request forgery attacks. There are also some security issues in kses, the HTML filter we're using in Geeklog.
The second release candidate for Geeklog 1.5.0 is now available for download. We expect this to be the last release candidate before the final release, so if you haven't had a chance, now would be a good time to try out the new features in 1.5.0 and help us track down any remaining bugs.
The changes over rc1: The bundled plugins will no longer read the old config.php files, setting the site's default language and theme in the Configuration now works, and inconsistencies in the layout of the admin screens have been fixed. There were also quite a few changes for internationalisation, which also required a few more theme changes.
The first release candidate for Geeklog 1.5.0 is now available for download. This version is now feature complete but may still contain bugs - please help us find them. We have also updated geeklog.net to 1.5.0rc1, so you can try it out right here. Of course, as mentioned before, the most interesting new features are "under the hood", so please download the tarball and try it out yourself.
The changes over Beta 2: MS SQL support should now be working properly, a couple of bugs in the Calendar plugin have been fixed, and stories now work with the "timezone hack" again. There were also a few more theme changes and the first updated translations have arrived.
Nextide is pleased to announce the release of version 1.1 of the nexPro Portal suite and immediate availability for un-restricted downloads.
You can now download the full Nexpro suite and the individual nexpro plugins. While nexPro has always been offered wihout a license fee, there was a requirement to purchase an annual support agreement and now, that requirement no longer exists. We are still offering our premium support and custom development services, sites that need a higher level of service should review our Service Offering.
The Nexpro suite is an integrated version of Geeklog with all of our plugins pre-installed as part of the single download making it a simple matter to just enable the plugins you want. Nexpro version 1.1 is still based on GL 1.4.1 but all of the plugins have been tested with GL 1.5. The nexpro suite and plugins provide unique business oriented features like:
So we're trying to stick to the
Release early, release often mantra for once: The second beta version of Geeklog 1.5.0 is now available for download.
This version fixes some issues with the XHTML support (including errors in some language files), a database and some cosmetic issues in the Polls plugin, display issues in the Static Pages plugin, and a few other minor problems. MS SQL install should now work but upgrades still don't (they do for MySQL, though).
Please note that we had to make a database change and some more theme changes in this version, so it's not fully compatible with beta 1. Beta 2 is still not quite finished.
The Geeklog Team would like to announce that the first beta release of Geeklog 1.5.0 is now available for download. This release incorporates the results of last year's Google Summer of Code, namely:
Geeklog 1.5.0 also provides support for OpenID and LDAP, includes FCKeditor 2.6, and much more.
A word of warning, though: We are releasing this beta version in an attempt to keep the schedule we announced earlier, i.e. having a new release out by the time the coding starts for this year's Summer of Code. It is not finished yet.
Some of the key new plugins and features include:
I have created RPM packages for Geeklog 1.4.1, Forum 2.7, Filemgmt 1.5.2, Captcha 3.0.2 and Media Gallery 1.5.0. Packages do install all software within /etc/geeklog, /usr/share/geeklog, /var/lib/geeklog and /var/log/geeklog directories, trying to stick as much as possible with the FHS 2.3 (Filesystem Hierarchy Standard). Basically anyone with minimal skills (to know hoe to use mysqladmin, mysql and any text editor) and with a working Red Hat™ Enterprise Linux 5 based OS (CentOS 5, etc.) may install Geeklog, Forum, Filemgnt, Captcha and Media Gallery in less than three minutes.
If you need help in setting up or using Geeklog, please see the documentation, the FAQ, the Wiki, try our search page or browse through the Support Forum. Chances are someone else already had the same problem.
