We'll be at OSCON, the world's largest open source software conference, and we'd love to meet you there.
The conference is held in San Jose, south of San Francisco, from July 20 to 24 and attracts thousands of developers and others interested in open source. Come join one of our SilverStripe sessions!
We've issued a new stable release of SilverStripe today! It restores support for multiple-language websites and includes a small set of usability and performance improvements.
SilverStripe has supported multiple-language websites since 2007. The feature which provides this is called Translatable in the codebase, and it lets you create a page with variations in different languages. Translatable is intended for websites whose content exists in a number of languages, while the structure of the site is similar or even identical for all of those languages.
SilverStripe spoke at a monthly web-developer event in May. Listen to 61 minutes explaining our software and company, and answering a huge number of questions from a very interested crowd:
SilverStripe 2.3.2 release candidate 4 is out. It fixes a number of bugs and means we step closer to a stable 2.3.2 release.
This release focuses on improving multiple language support, as we have discussed earlier. We'd love for you download and test the release so that we can ensure our code is of a high quality!
SilverStripe v2.3.2 RC2 is now available! This provides the second update to the SilverStripe 2.3.2 beta which was released in early May.
We'd love your support: download, install, and test the code and raise bugs if you find any! Once we're satisfied that neither the community nor the core team can find any major bugs, the code will be deemed stable for general use.
There's finally a book available that educates people on how to appropriately choose an open source CMS.
Nirav Mehta's Choosing an Open Source CMS: Beginner's Guide reviews about a dozen open source CMS packages; read the table of the contents to see what they are. The table of contents also outlines how the book covers the topic of choosing the right software, be your project a website, blog, wiki, or something else.
We've issued a beta release of SilverStripe today that restores support for multiple-language websites.
We want people to test this update, and in particular, confirm that our migration script works reliably. Please help by reporting bugs so that we can confidently ready this release for production use.
You can now depend on SilverStripe to intelligently reduce spam appearing on your website.
This is because we've now officially partnered with Mollom. This means that the Mollom anti-spam module we released last month will see continued improvements. It also means our company will provide commercial support for the code.
Our first English SilverStripe book is in progress and you can now pre-order it! We anticipate it will be published by the end of August.
One of the world's largest book publishers, Wiley, has agreed to license our 450-page German SilverStripe book (pictured) from the German publisher and translate it into English. The effort of updating and translating the book is being done by our core developers, including Ingo Schommer who co-authored the initial book.
SilverStripe will be showcased in an upbeat annual CMS competition at next week's Janus Boye CMS Conference in Philadelphia!
The Web Idol competition is modelled after American Idol and is designed to be both entertaining and informative. It features quick-fire competitive performances and a panel of pithy judging. We get 6 minutes to have a heap of fun—and explain to a voting audience why SilverStripe deserves an outrageously large trophy. Stay tuned!
