ImpressCMS 2.0.0 Alpha 2 now availablePublished by Fiammybe on 2013/5/1 (2986 reads)
The ImpressCMS team is proud to present the second alpha release for ImpressCMS 2.0.0. This release is the first release since the move to Git, and contains several major changes compared to the previous alpha release.
This release is now ready to test, and depending on the amount of feedback we get, a new alpha release could be coming in one or two weeks. Let's take out the test sheet and make this a rock-solid release!
The complete list of changes can be found on the changelog on Assembla.
Major changes in this release
The full changelog is available on Assembla.
New UI System
System module refactor to IPF
The system module is now refactored to use the IPF standards as much as possible, thanks to skenow. Some work still needs to be done, but this is a major step in the right direction.
We've gone through the translation files and started to eliminate duplication and had a good look at the file structure. This should result in less duplicates in the translations and a more logical organisation
This alpha release does not contain any core modules yet, as we want to focus on testing the core changes, which have been extensive. Once the core is validated, we can turn our attention to the core modules in one of the next alpha releases.
Attention: This is an Alpha Release!
Alpha releases are solely for development and testing purposes. Those releases can be as unstable as can be. Bugs can be fixed during this stage but we will most likely use the Beta stage to fix bugs.
Please test your favorite modules for compatibility, and report on the result of those tests (either working AND non working) in the appropriate forum.
The file can be downloaded from the Development releases page
The goal of the ImpressCMS Project is to stimulate and promote the open source nature of the CMS in both the core and its modules and establish itself as the premiere CMS by expanding the system to meet the needs of their users now and well into the future.
