Heads up to those working from svn and those who have developed their own custom features.
I've done some major re-organization of namespaces that will require changes to custom modules/features you have developed (outside of mjoPortal svn) in order to keep in sync with the newest/next versions of mojoPortal
If you get branches/2.x and test your custom features you will find some things broken due to the namespace changes. The functionality has not been removed, just moved so if you have any trouble finding the new methods post in the forums and I will try to help.
Some of the changes include, moving SiteUtils out of mojoPortal.Business into mojoPortal.Web and moving some of its functionality into WebUtils in a new project mojoPortal.Web.Framework
The main goal of the changes was to remove the reference from mojoPortal.Business to System.Web and to organize things a little more. While namespace changes can be painful for those with custom features I think that these changes will be very beneficial in the long run and I will be happy to help anyone with the needed changes in their own libraries.
Because some of the business objects need some web specific extensions I created another class library project:
which provides things like caching support and other extensions that require a reference to System.Web
These are the things that previously were in mojoPortal.Business and needed the reference to System.Web
I also added a class library:
where I have moved functionality that s useful to any web application, this library has no reference to mojoPortal.Business
A few key changes:
SiteUtils.GetCurrentSiteSettings() is now CacheHelper.GetCurrentSiteSettings()
SiteUtils.GetCurrentPage() is now CacheHelper.GetCurrentPage()
SiteUser.IsInRoles(...) is now WebUser.IsInRoles(...)
SiteUser.IsInRole(...) is now WebUser.IsInRole(...)
After some more testing I will likely make a new release of mojoPortal to get these changes out before making any changes that require db schema changes
Any help from the community in testing branches/2.x before the release is greatly encouraged and appreciated.

I just released mojoPortal 2.1.5, this is another easy upgrade with no db schema changes.
Users of MS SQL and PostgreSQL must run the stored procedure script to get the latest stored procedures.
This release includes:
the new version of FCKeditor
2 new skins contributed by Jason Wisener
Update from MS Atlas to MS AJAX Extensions (when using the mojoportal-2-1-5-ajax-extensions-pak.zip download)
bugfixes for the general error handling, image gallery, and a number of other little bugs that were fixed
updated Russian translation (thanks to Alexander Yushchenko)
For this release I have also created a separate download for mojoPortal Web Controls, to allow developers to use some of our handy controls like DatePicker and SmartCombo in other projects.
You will also notice I have stubbed out some new documentation pages on this site that are currently blank. I am beginning a major push to improve our documentation so please be patient and check back as these pages will not remain blank
As always, if you have any trouble with this release, please post in the forums and I will try to help.

We're getting very close to a 2.1.5 release.
This one will have no db schema changes, the main changes are upgrade to the new version of FCKeditor, 2 new skins, and quite a few little bug fixes.
Hopefully in the next day or so.

For anyone who has been having trouble with anonymous checkout from svn, it is finally working again.
There was a major outage last week and it took a while to get everything configured again but as of now everything seems to be working as it should.
