Geeklog 1.5.0 BETA 1

  • Contributed by:
  • Views:

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:

  • New user-friendly install script by Matt West
  • New Configuration GUI (replacing config.php) by Aaron Blankstein
  • New Webservices API based on the Atom Publishing Protocol by Ramnath R. Iyer

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.

The issues we know about are:

  • MS SQL support is still not quite working.
  • A few more theme changes will be required before the final release.

The issues we don't know about is why we are releasing this beta now: If you have chance to run it on a local server or a non-productive site, please download it and give it a try. And if you notice any problems, let us know.

As you can see, we haven't updated yet - we'll do that once we're moving to release candidates. If you want to see a site running on 1.5.0, try, but keep in mind that the most dramatic changes (install script, config GUI, etc.) are "under the hood" and not visible to normal users. You'll have to try it for yourself to see them :-)
