Serendipity 0.8 and PHP < 4.3

Due to a bug in the version_compare issue in PHP versions prior to 4.3, an Upgrade from Serendipity 0.7.1 to 0.8 may fail. Because of this error and other security issues in older PHP versions you are urged to upgrade your PHP versions to the latest 4.3 version. Please talk to your hoster to setup a proper version for you, if you do not have access on your own.

CVS to SVN Development change

The ongoing sourcecode development of Serendipity has been migrated to BerliOS. We will now maintain our code via SVN instead of CVS. Additional plugins and Themes will still be hosted and maintained on, as well will we migrate new snapshots/branches of final versions to the SourceForge CVS.

If you want to participate in Serendipity, apply for a SVN account on our Mailing List.

New changes will now be available via ViewCVS on BerliOS.

Serendipity 0.8 released

Finally, after about 8 months of hard development and 6 beta releases the Serendipity Team is proud to finally release version 0.8 of Serendipity.

Many new and important features have been introduced, the core code has been made much more flexible, our code is polished up and many bugs and security issues were addressed.

Thus we feel that this latest version is a very recommended upgrade for all users.

We have put up a detailed migration and upgrade documentationere here: 0.8 Release Announcement. Please read it carefully, it contains all information on how to upgrade within just a few minutes to your brand-new blog.

0.8-beta Users are urged to upgrade to the final version as a few important security fixes have been made.

We would like to thank everyone who has helped us improve Serendipity by reporting bugs and feature requests, and taking Serendipity to a new level. We are open to any feedback for this new release!
