Seagull 0.5.4 Released

Posted on 19 December 2005 by Demian Turner

Seagull 0.5.4 from the development branch was released last week, the last release for 2005, and ended up being suprisingly full of new features. Here are some of the highlights:

  • implemented an XML-RPC gateway for easy creation of web services
  • version checker first feature to take advantage of RPC
  • Chinese and Polish translations updated
  • Service Locator object added, now trivial to swap in test db at runtime
  • Smarty template support integrated (Malaney J. Hill)
  • installer now optionally loads default data
  • DB2 support added (Tobias Kuckuck)
  • Web root path now configurable from installer
  • Improved performance for DB-based sessions (Eric Persson)
  • the following url parsing strategies are now enabled by default: classic querystring, standard Seagull SEF, and now UrlAlias, see here for more details
  • Basic CLI request implemented (Eric Persson)
  • Uri aliases integrated into navigation module, external Uris handled (Andrey Podshivalov)
  • Block management enhanced – you can now create any number of arbitrarily positioned blocks and assign content to them (Andrey Podshivalov)
  • Integrated advanced locale features available via SGL_Locale (a wrapper for PEAR’s i18nv2), disabled by default

Download here, recommended for php < 5 until Zend IDE supports debugging for php 5.1. Simpletest would be nice too.
