Serendipity 1.0-beta1 released!

The Serendipity Team is proud to issue the first beta release of the upcoming Serendipity 1.0 version.

Serendipity's development has started nearly 3 years ago, and has undergone many fundamental changes in the past. Many feature enhancements and bug fixes have lead to a quite stable product that we feel very well with putting the "1.0" version tag on it. Don't let that version number fool you - other products may not have reached our stableness in their 2.x versions! ;-)

As for the new features since Serendipity 0.9.1, we have focussed on straighting out bugs and improving usability and more flexible templating and plugin handling:

  • Fixed Safari Browser issue with formatting and inserting media items
  • Fix templatechooser plugin to be nicer to browser caching
  • RFE #1387997 - Show amount of entries per archive period (archive sidebar plugin).
  • More abstraction for the serendipity_fetchEntries() call
  • Full PHPDOC function documentation
  • Plugin API: New "multiselect" plugin item type
  • Spamblock plugin improvements: Filter comment body, Check foreign Trackback URLs
  • Templating: New preview_iframe.tpl template for entry previews, new Smarty functions for fetching and printing entries within a template, RSS feeds can be templated
  • Fix not being able to create users of the same userlevel despite being admin
  • Fix bug #1371893: Category write permissions are not properly evaluated when writing into a category.
  • Fix bug #1371630: Write permissions to category are stored with input data of the 'Read permissions' author listing.
  • Plus many more things listed in our docs/NEWS file!

Upgrading from any version (also beta/alphas from previous versions) to Serendipity 0.9 is easy and can be done as before: Just unpack the release files to your existing directory, go to your admin panel and confirm the upgrade process. Serendipity automatically upgrades your database and tells you of important changes. Be sure to read our FAQ on if you face any problems.

We are eagerly waiting for positive feedback or any problems you face with this new release on either this blog or via our Forums. The final 1.0 version is scheduled for February 15th.

The upgrade was smooth as a baby's bottom. Went from 0.9.1. Have upgraded a few plugins, otherwise everything seems to be working fine, these are still early days though.
