mojoPortal 2.1.5 Releasd

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.

Getting Close to a New Release

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.

Anonymous Checkout From Subversion is Working Again

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.

Essex Biodiversity Project a new mojoPortal Site

A new site for The Essex Biodiversity Project is now online and using mojoPortal.

Harvey Watts did a great job with the site. Its very nice to see mojoPortal used for important work like environmental protection and preservation.

A quote from Harvey Watts of Hickory Hollow the company that implemented the Essex Biodiversity Project site:

"Several of us worked on it from Hickory Hollow
(http://www.hickoryhollow.co.uk - this needs to be a mojoportal!) and
the site owners Gen and Mark who run the Essex Biodiversity Project.
That is the neat thing about mojoportal it allows end users to populate
the content of the site without too much assistance from techies."

This illustrates some of the benefits of a content management system like mojoPortal, you don't need to ask a developer when you need new pages on your site. Once the developer sets it up for you content authors can do the rest right from the browser.
