Cloudflare protection

We have installed Cloudflare protection on the server, which means you can encounter an intermediate page every so often when you visit the ImpressCMS websites. There is no reason to be alarmed, it is meant to work that way for the near future.

Changing of the Guard

As the 1.3 life cycle was being launched, the ImpressCMS Team elected a Release Manager to oversee the coordination of development, feature requests, issue tracking, packaging of the releases and posting announcements. This was a new role for ImpressCMS, and the first person selected to fill that role was David Janssens (@fiammybe), who took on this role and began to add another dimension to the project and its direction.

The next stage of ImpressCMS has been set - the 2.0 releases, built on the foundation of 1.3. With the advent of this new series of releases, it has come time to say 'Thank you!' to David and usher in a new Release Manager.

ImpressCMS 1.3.5 Final(ly)! New Stable Release of ImpressCMS

The ImpressCMS 1.3.5 Final release is now available to download. This release, the latest in the ImpressCMS 1.3 branch, proposes several regression and bug fixes, along with multiple updates to external libraries.

This stable release includes an update to the Smarty library, updates to several external libraries (jQuery, jQuery UI, Colorbox, HTML Purifier, TinyMCE and TCPDF), and updates to core modules. The 1.3 series of ImpressCMS is intended to assist webmasters in migrating sites from the legacy architecture to the new architecture designed for speed, scalability, security and expandibility.

General Improvements 

  • MariaDB has been verified to work with ImpressCMS as an alternative to MySQL
  • Core links pointing to 'index.php' files have been removed. This improves your link profiles for the search engines because it eliminates different URIs pointing to the same content.
  • Creating PDF content with functionality included in the core no longer generates an error

Security release of Smarty template engine added

  • A vulnerability in the Smarty template engine was patched

Google Translation Error Identified - Response Needed

A rather unfortunate error has been discovered in how Google Translate is translating "ImpressCMS" to other languages. We all know that Google Translate and all other machine translation is not 100% accurate, but it is usually quite good at recognizing names and brands. It is not the case with XOOPS and ImpressCMS.

An email has been sent the XOOPS project administrator requesting their participation in resolving this error, and they have offered their full support in this matter, including a letter of support to Google. They agree with us this is not helping ImpressCMS nor XOOPS. We have also initiated a request with Google to investigate the source of the error and to provide us with steps to resolve globally.

Release Candidate 1.3.5 is Now Available

The developers have taken some time to go through the 1.3.x branch to apply some fixes to our primary version and are now releasing ImpressCMS 1.3.5 RC2. RC2, because RC1 was never released. The primary focus of this release is an update to the Smarty library, for security purposes, updates to several external libraries (jQuery, jQuery UI, Colorbox, HTML Purifier, TinyMCE and TCPDF), and updates to core modules. Since this is a release candidate, you are urged to test this as widely as possible in your environment and report any issues before the final stable release is published.
