07 Jun 2006: 1.0.4 Released
Version 1.0.4 contains a security fix. (See details.) All 1.0.X users should upgrade. 
Upgrading: There are no database changes, so this release can be unpacked/unzipped over a 1.0.2 or 1.0.3 release, but be sure to copy over includes/site_extras.php if you have modified it.

11 Apr 2006: 1.0.3 Released

16 Mar 2006: 1.1 Development News
More new features have gone into the 1.1 code in CVS:

  • Db query caching: This will be particularly useful for event calendars that are not updated nearly as frequently as a multi-user calendar. Db query results are saved off to a file and used the next time the query is made. This should speed up performance considerably. 
    Note: This is not documented anywhere, but add a new cachedir entry in includes/settings.php for this feature to be enabled.
  • Translation parsing cache: Translation files will now be parsed and saved into a cache file for faster loading.
  • New menu!: A new menu system is now available. This menu will eventually replace the trailer at the bottom of each page.
  • User Access Control UI: The UI for UAC has been revamped and should be much more intuitive than the initial interface.
