"SilverStripe – Das umfassende Handbuch" is now in German bookstores and available online to purchase for €39.90.
At 450 pages, it provides a more structured and comprehensive set of SilverStripe technical documentation than what is currently available at doc.silverstripe.com, so we strongly encourage German developers to buy the book and become a much more educated, sophisticated SilverStripe developer!
To coincide with SilverStripe 2.3.0, the forms, newsletter, and blog modules have been released.
Details on each module are described below.
SilverStripe v2.3.0 is now available to download! This release brings thousands of updates, and shows our continued effort in making SilverStripe's underlying codebase a tool for professional website developers and the CMS a user-friendly and efficient interface for non-technical content authors.
We've been invited to be the theme for their March event. We're planning to show people how to use our ModelAdmin feature to quickly build administration interfaces, and give pointers on how to contribute to our open source project. If you've got a pet bug or feature, you might even be able to bribe us to solve it with a beer!
Over the past two months we've made an impressive number of improvements to the upcoming version of our software, SilverStripe v2.3.0.
Release Candidate 3 is now available. Please help test it and submit bugs. Based on the importance of bugs raised in coming weeks we will either relabel this as a stable version or produce a release candidate 4.
This brings the material up to date for our upcoming version of SilverStripe 2.3.0, and is part of our overall efforts to continually improve our documentation.
If you want to meet SilverStripe developers in San Francisco later this month, you're in luck!
Two members of our open source community, Jep and Phillip, are hosting an after-work meetup for anyone interested in learning about and discussing SilverStripe. We hope you can make it!
Less than 30 of our 2000+ forum members have their website publicly listed in their profile.
By including your website URL, you make it easier for the community to learn about you. You may even gain some commercial work if your forum posts, themes, or showcase sites make you look good! (This is especially true if you also enter your city and company name.)
SilverStripe designer James has given demo.silverstripe.com a brand new look. The new theme is clean, balanced, and integrates the navigation unobtrusively. The goal is to make the content the central focus.
