Hi list

Time has passed since we moved to Github, and Cyril and I have been  
quite busy working on the next major version of Typo. Migrating from  
Rails 2.0 to 2.2 was not an easy trip, but we did it and we now can  
look forward with pride.

Typo 5.1.98 is the release candidate for Typo "Helmut Newton" 5.2,  
meaning all the work done so far since last September is almost done.  
So, what?

Typo 5.2 was half rewriting the existing with bugs removal and  
performances in sight and half adding new features. For the first  
part, the job was hard, but we've divided the memory footprint by 4  
for a blog with a hundred articles and a thousand of posts, and the  
results are faster.

For the features part, Typo comes with :

* Brand new admin, easier to use. We've worked on usability and  
simplicity, rethinking the whole blogging experience.

* SEO improvements. We've added lots of SEO related things like the  
ability to choose categories meta keywords and description, remove  
duplicate titles, descriptions and keywords between pages, clever  
robots.txt...

* Coderay support for more code syntax hilghlighting

* Default live search is now brought to you as a separate sidebar  
plugin and search internals and results display have been completely  
rewriten for a better result.

And so many things that I can't write them down
