Thanks to everyone who came along to our June meetup in Wellington. We hope you enjoyed your well-deserved beer and learnt a thing or two! We were treated to two excellent talks from Sam Minnée and John Milmine. Here's a quick rundown of what they spoke about, with slides and videos for those of you who weren't able to make it.

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.

Note: This release only supports the latest versions Google Chrome and Firefox, we’re in the process of adding IE support.
