I feel a new release coming soon...

Its been a couple of months since we had a release but I think things are coming into place for a new release to happen within the next week or so.

Highlights of the coming release will be

  • Support for LDAP authentication thanks to code contributed by TJ Fontaine
  • Option to use a User ID for login instead of email
  • New Forum Notification Subscription features and ability to delete threads and forums contributed by Dean Brettle
  • A new module that lets you include html fragments from external files in a page
  • The DatePicker and SmartCombo controls have been split into a separate assembly mojoPortal.Web.Controls.dll so they can be used easily in other projects
  • Features for the Admin to update user names and delete users or flag users as deleted
  • Various bug fixes

I'm thinking of a new versioning scheme, the previous versions were in the date format 20050912 which makes it easy to tell if you have the newest version but gives no idea how mature the project is. I think since we have passed the 1 year of development mark it is good to be able to know that from the version so the next version will be 1.2005xxxx to indicate the date of release and the number of years since the first release. Each year this will increment.

I'd like to thank Jasmin Savard for the new graphic depicting mojoPortal as boxed software.

I've posted a few things of interest lately on my personal site. Here is some information on the difference between VS 2003 and VS 2005 Web Projects and here is a new tutorial for installing Suse 10. It is the first in a series, the next one will show how to build mono from source code and the one after that will show how to install mojoPortal and configure Virtual Hosts in apache for using mod_mono.

Hi Joe,

FYI, I think this next release will also be the first to include the forum/thread subscription stuff.  I think it just missed making it into the last release.

I mailed you a while back using the novell mail thingy, I have a few small fixes, maybee you can give me write access to the svn repository?
The fixes if you decide not to give me write access, here are a few more urgent fixes:
- MySqlData\dbPortal.cs line 7588 using @ instead of ? for parameter names (4x)
- Web\FCKeditor\editor\filemanager\browser\default\Browser.css should be named browser.css (watch the case)

Hi Jelle,

I never got your previous message. The easist thing is if you can send me patch files against the latest svn code. If using TortoiseSVN do SVN Update to get the latest then right click and create patch to create a patch with your changes.

Out of couriosity, what is wrong with:

e.g. I could imagine that mojoPortal 2.x.y.z would work on Framework 2.0.

Frnakly I cannot  find anything positive about Apache 10.20051207 (that would be it's version according to your proposed numbering). Not to mention head split - how is it going to be handled?

Yeah after further thought I think my versioning idea is not so good. I guess  I will go with a more conventional approach and maybe just make this release 1.0
