The first release candidate for Geeklog 1.4.1 is now available for download. This release fixes the remaining issue with MS SQL, improves multi-language support, and fixes a couple of other bugs. There were no database or language file changes, but we did some final tweaks of the Professional theme.

We have also added new API functions for plugins to hook into submission forms (e.g. registration, comments, stories). The new version of Mark Evans' CAPTCHA plugin is the first to make use of those new functions and should be much easier to install now.

While this is not the final 1.4.1 yet, we would like to ask you to download it and try it out to help us track down any remaining issues. Please also keep in mind that once 1.4.1 is out, the support for Geeklog 1.3.11, and therefore for the entire 1.3.x line, will end. So now would be a good time to start planning for an upgrade of your site.

We would also like to send out a call to send in any translations (updated or new) that you may have made. Geeklog ships with language files for over 30 languages, but not all of them have been updated for this new release yet. If you need help with the translations, our geeklog-translations mailing list is the place to ask.

If all goes according to plan, the final 1.4.1 should be ready before the end of the year.
