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!
We want developers to test this release so we can label it ready for general consumption.
To coincide with SilverStripe 2.3.0, the forms, newsletter, and blog modules have been released.
