> Good evening,
> I'm not sure someone else than me is still reading this list, but I've been
> posting release announcement there for 4 years now and I won't easily lose a
> so good habbit.
> After 7 months of work, the 6.0.1 "Irving Penn" release of Typo is finally
> available. This major version of our application is not only about upgrading
> to Rails 3. It also bring the usual quota of bug fixes and improvements.
> You can download Typo 6.0 as a zip archive (
> http://typosphere.org/stable.zip) or as a tarball (
> http://typosphere.org/stable.tgz), or just try our online demo at
> http://demo.typosphere.org.
> Upgrading to Rails 3 was a long and difficult path. Typo was born when
> Rails was very very young. We sometimes had to chose some ways to do things
> while Rails would chose a totally different way to fix its lacks. Typo 6.0
> is only a first Rails 3 compatible version, and we’re still planning to
> ditch the remaining piece of antiquities we're still carrying.
> * Good bye gem and installer
> Typo installer has been around for 6 years now. When Rails 1.0 was
> released, it really looked like a good idea. Unfortunately it quicly became
> an abandonned blotware. Since then, lots of easy way of deploying a Rails
> application came, mostly thanks to Passenger and Bundler. That's the reason
> why we have decided to drop it. Installing Typo is now easy as, let’s say,
> installing any other mainstream blogging engine: fill in your database
> credential, run bundle and you’re done.
> * Finally a real plugin API
> Thomas Lecavelier did a wonderful job working on what’s going to be the
> real plugin API we’ve dreamt of for a while now. He started with making
> avatar provider pluggable and knows how much he still has to be done. Good
> news as he’s the latest addition to Typo core team. We’re really glad to
> welcome him onboard.
> * Admin, SEO and usability
> We’ve made some SEO improvement, adding a bit more options, and making tags
> URL really SEO friendly. Admin usability has been improved to, but we’ve
> many other things we want to make better as well.
> * Theme changes
> Theme structure has been change to be compliant with Rails views structure.
> If you’re using a custom template, you’ll have to move the layouts folder
> into the views one. Nothing you can’t handle.
> * Bug fixes
> As usual, we have fixed a bunch of bugs, Typo 6.0.1 being a real bugfix
> release. Please, read our complete changelog about this.
> We're now going to work on a 6.1 version bringing you new feature.
> All the best,
> Frédéric, Matijs, Cyril and Thomas
