Seagull 0.4.3 Released

Posted on 27 June 2005 by Demian Turner

Seagull 0.4.3, just out, is mainly a bugfix release with a few important new features:

  • I’ve added a bug reporter to help encourage user feedback (the insect icon can be disabled in Config)
  • improved FCK editor integration
  • more user-friendly error messages during install for db probs
  • SGL_Emailer now suports multiple backends (Ferdinand Hoffmann)
  • session security improved (tip from Ilia Alshanetsky)
  • DB_DataObject schema prefix bug fixed for postgres users (Pierpaolo Toniolo)
  • DB schema/data synchoronised for MySQL, Postgres and Oracle
  • CSS/XHTML continues to be improved (Riccardo Magliocchetti)

Also, we’ve moved to svn at last, thanks to Andrew for setting things up, and Trac is in the pipeline which will help manage release goals and give visibility to the project roadmap.

Other things coming up:

  • automated unit testing framework built on top of SimpleTest PEAR package
  • xml-rpc interface to securely expose data access layer
  • improved task-based installer to allow minimal install and module selection
  • branches starting for shopping cart module and Translation2 integration

Download the latest release or browse the source in svn. Svn anonymous checkout is as simple as:
