We recently released a major update to the User Forms module. We mentioned the features earlier, but these features are now ready for production websites.
An exciting feature added to this version of the User Forms module is that it supports custom fields. These extensions are created by writing PHP code that can sit in their own folder, making them easy to share and reuse. Technically, you extend the EditableFormField PHP class; see the Google Maps Selection Field source code for an example. We're looking forward to seeing the community contribute useful types of fields, and we are also happy to know that the core module does not need to bloat with all sorts of rarely used field types.
Come to a SilverStripe event in London on Thursday 3rd September! SilverStripe Partner GPMD is hosting the after-work event from 6:45pm at The Worship — see the new SilverStripeUK meetup group that GMPD has created for further details. GPMD plans to make this a regular event in London.
Anyone interested in using—or currently using—the SilverStripe CMS is welcome, and it doesn't matter if you are technical or not. So if you're in London, we'd love for you to come to this informative and interesting evening.
We've released updates to five modules today. The set of releases focuses on giving more power to non-technical people in managing website forms.
Today's release of the User Forms module is a significant update and near-rewrite of version 0.1.
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 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.
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.
At MIX today, Microsoft released Web Platform Installer (WebPI) 2.0 beta—new software that makes it much easier and more compelling to install PHP applications on the Windows IIS web server.
SilverStripe has been selected as one of ten PHP and .NET web applications to be bundled with the launch of WebPI. This means the easiest method for installing SilverStripe is now Microsoft's WebPI, and for many people, this will be much easier than installing SilverStripe using WAMP or on Linux.
Thank you to those who tested SilverStripe 2.3.1rc1! You identified a few easy-to-fix bugs that we felt were important to solve before issuing the final release of SilverStripe 2.3.1.
We're keen to have developers download silverstripe-2.3.1rc2.tar.gz and confirm that it's a good release. If no problems are found we'll mark it as stable this week!
