Hi everyone,

This is just a quick post to announce some features confirmed for version 2.1. Let us know what you think of these features, and feel free post any related suggestions.

SUB-SITES

You will be able to use a single SilverStripe installation to manage any number of "sub-sites". They will run from the same set of templates and code-base, but will have their own content and domains. You will also be able to have a single log-in for all sites, but set permissions on a site-by-site basis.

This will be really useful if you're wanting to set up a family of similar sites on different domains, or if you want to manage a few sites from within the single application.

THEMES

Related to sub-sites, you will be able to include a number of themes for your site: alternative templates and CSS files to choose from. As part of this, we will be releasing a number of standard themes for you to choose from.

If you're running one sites, this will be a way of choosing a default template; however, it will be most useful when using sub-sites: you will be able to apply different themes to different sub-sites.
