SilverStripe 3.0 alpha 1 is ready to download

Posted by Kerstin Schuman on 1 November 2011

It’s been a while since we gave you the SS 3.0 preview to play around with earlier in the year. Now we are getting serious. We are proud and excited to announce that SilverStripe CMS 3.0 alpha 1 and SilverStripe Framework 3.0 alpha 1 are ready to download and test now.

We’ve made the new CMS faster and more flexible. It shows an outstanding new user interface and last but not least; we separated the framework from the CMS and made it its own entity.

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.

SilverStripe CMS the first ever open source web app to become Microsoft Certified

Posted by Sigurd Magnusson on 17 November 2010

We're excited to report that SilverStripe CMS has become Microsoft certified today. This is notable because Microsoft has certified a very small number* of web apps, and we're the first ever open source certified web app.

Microsoft's Certified for Windows programme is well known for indicating software and hardware products that have been thoroughly tested and which work well on Microsoft Windows. Of course, much of the innovation in the software world is now happening on the web, and with awareness and adoption of open source software growing fantastically, it makes sense for Microsoft to begin certifying open source web-based software.

SilverStripe 2.4.1 Update

Posted by on 23 July 2010

We're pleased to announce 2.4.1, our first update to the 2.4 codebase. You can check a full list of changes in our changelog, but here are some highlights:

  • Fixed a bug where logged-in CMS authors were allowed to rename files with harmful extensions in the "Files & Images" section
  • Improved installer security by disallowing re-installation when a configuration file is already present.
  • Installing in "live mode" instead of "dev mode" by default, and avoid setting certain domains as "dev mode" by default. This fixes an issue where attackers were able to force a site into "dev mode" by spoofing the domain name on certain server configurations.
  • Fixed password encryption when saving members through the "Add Member" dialog in the "Security" admin. The saving process was disregarding password encyrption and saving them as plaintext (issue was introduced in 2.4.0)
  • Fixed potential information disclosure on misconfigured servers by disallowing direct execution of *.php files in "sapphire", "cms" and "mysite" folders. If PHP was configured to show errors on screen (development setting), attackers could find out server paths and other environment information.
  • Allow CMS authors to set their own localized date and time formats, independently from the defaults set through their interface language.
  • More useable date picker (jQuery UI) for date form fields (both in the CMS and in website forms)
  • Better URL "transliteration" of special characters like Umlauts or Macrons (Example URL in German: "Brötchen für alle!", URL in 2.4.0: "brtchen-fr-alle", URL in 2.4.1: "broetchen-fuer-alle")
  • Better batch editing of comments in the admin interface (e.g. marking multiple comments as "spam")
  • More sophisticated access control for decorators on page types (tri-state permissions checks: allow, deny, ignore).
  • Added a Latvian translation of the CMS interface (thanks Kristaps and Andris!)

Mostly, however, 2.4.1 is a security release for vulnerabilities discovered recently and contains all enhancements and bugfixes since the 2.4.0 release.
