As mentioned a couple of weeks ago the launch of the new silverstripe.org website is upon us. I'm excited to announce that on the 18th of September we'll be doing the final migration of content and pressing the go live button.
There will likely be some down time while this process occurs so please make sure to keep an eye on our Twitter and Facebook channels on the day to get the latest information and status updates as we run through our launch process.
A maintenance page is due to go up on the current website around noon on the 18th September (NZST) with links to commonly used SilverStripe community sites available during this time.
Other than that, see you on the other side of launch with an all new, fresh face for the SilverStripe community.
Whether you're just interested in SilverStripe or have already fallen in love with it we've got an event for you coming up very soon in Europe that you absolutely can't miss!

The wait for the new SilverStripe.org site is nearly over!
The SilverStripe team have been busy working on a redevelopment of the silverstripe.org website. The time is fast approaching for the launch so we thought we would give you a heads up on a few things to be aware of.
Today we have highlights from two more NZ PHP Conference speakers. SilverStripe's Solutions Architect Ingo Schommer shares his highlights from Nate Abele's talk on Hypermedia APIs and developer Ed Linklater shares his highlights from Chris Pitt's presentation on Asynchronous PHP.
6 Highlights from Nate Abele - Designing Hypermedia APIs with PHP
It was fitting that the speaker chosen to kick off the first ever New Zealand PHP Conference was Rasmus Lerdorf. Rasmus is known for having gotten the PHP project off the ground in 1995 and has contributed to a number of other open source projects over the years. He was an infrastructure architect at Yahoo! for more than 7 years and joined Etsy in 2012. Rasmus's presentation covered an interesting background to how PHP evolved from a templating system into a coding language as well as insights into the greater purpose his role at Esty provides.
Last week Wellington welcomed New Zealand's first ever PHP Conference and a host of amazing speaker's from around the globe. An informal welcome event was hosted at the SilverStripe Head Office the night before the conference kicked off. It was a great chance to meet with the speakers and to show them a taste of Wellington hospitality.
A short notice for users of the Translatable module.
If you are using the translatable module version 1.1 in your projects via the composer dependancy management tool, you will need to update the requirements to version 2.0 in order to continue to receive future updates.
For example, in your composer.json file change the required version to correctly pull the 2.0 version.
