SilverStripe 3.0 preview 1 is here!

Posted by Joanna McLeod on 2 May 2011

It is with an enormous sense of pride, excitement, nervousness and relief that we are able to announce that SilverStripe 3.0 preview 1 has been released. This release is mainly focused on the separation of Sapphire as a framework from the "cms" module, as well as starting the new user interface implementation for the CMS. While most of the work is "under the hood", you should get a feel for how we plan to improve the authoring experience with the new interface.
Note: This release only supports the latest versions Google Chrome and Firefox, we’re in the process of adding IE support.

SilverStripe is introducing "preview releases" as a way to provide interested developers with an early stage snapshot of our work. Preview releases will be followed by "alpha releases", which contain most major API changes, and allows us to stabilise any API changes.

In March 2011, we tested the content-authoring interface within SilverStripe CMS against various major browsers, in order to provide recommendations to our users, and to identify opportunities for improvement.

Helping you get to the CMS Expo

Posted by Joanna McLeod on 12 April 2011

As you know, we're going to the CMS Expo Learning & Business conference, and we want you to come with us.

We think the expo will let you learn heaps about our CMS and give you a real opportunity to give feedback to us. It'll also provide a good opportunity to network, meet others using SilverStripe, and perhaps build up your client base. The expo is created for both developers building websites and apps, and also for organisations looking to find themselves the right CMS.

SilverStripe core now on GitHub

Posted by Joanna on 14 March 2011

We have recently moved our source code from Subversion to GitHub. GitHub is a popular and hosted source code control system based on Git, an advanced successor to Subversion.

We've made this transition because it simplifies our software release process, as we can now more easily work on two versions of our code simultaneously - our current stable series (e.g. v2.4.x) as well as upcoming releases that contain vastly different code (e.g. v3.) GitHub makes it much easier for developers outside the company to contribute code to us. This is important because, getting our community more involved with core development is a key part of our plans for SilverStripe 3.0.
