is a 2-day conference on Free Software and Open Source, taking place on August 25th and 26th, 2007, in Sankt Augustin, Germany. This is the second time this conference is held. I was there last year and was pretty impressed by the quality of the presentations and the organisation of the conference.

In addition to the regular program (now online), FrOSCon also provides room for Open Source projects to hold their own user meetups. So this year, there will be a Geeklog Day at FrOSCon on Saturday, August 25, 2007.

Bounties!

With Geeklog 1.4.1 finally out, it's time to make plans for the next release. At which point we can't help realize (again), that our list of open feature requests is embarrassingly long. So it's about time we do something about it.

Fortunately, we just had an offer to support Geeklog development which lets us try out something new (for us at least): Bounties.

The idea is that we identify tasks that probably wouldn't get implemented otherwise and add some incentive to have someone jump in and implement them. In other words, contributors are getting a chance to get paid for their contribution to Geeklog (not much, but still ...).

Our friendly new sponsor, AOE media GmbH, has commited to a monthly donation for the duration this year. So now we need your help in identifying the things that you would like to see implemented. Please keep in mind that we're not looking for new ideas at this point, but that we want to reduce our backlog of feature requests.

We'd like to have that discussion in the forums mostly, so if you have any general questions or issues with the bounty system, please use this thread. To chip in your favorite feature request, please use this thread.

Once we've got an overview over the most-wanted tasks, we will probably set up a poll to figure out the exact order (keep in mind that we only have limited financial resources).

We're awaiting your feedback!

Geeklog 1.4.1 Microsoft SQL Server Support

Geeklog The objective of the Microsoft SQL (MSSQL) port is to provide another database alternative to MYSQL to take advantage of SQL server in business environments where Mysql may be a barrier to entry. The goal was to provide the ability for GL1.4.0 to work in either Mysql or MS SQL server with zero code changes required to be done by the end user. The version(s) of SQL supported are SQL 2000 and above, including the MSDE.

An example plugin that was created to show an approach to isolate the database layer from the application logic can be found here in the downloads library.
