mojoPortal 2.2 Released

mojoPortal 2.2 is now available from the download page.

Highlights of this release:

Extensible User Profile System allows you to control what properties are on the User Profile page and what properties are required for registration.

New Persian translation and Right To Left skin thanks to A.Samarian
Updated Russian translation thanks to Alexander Yushchenko

Page Titles can now be customised if you don't like the SiteName - PageName default page titles

PageSettings now has an option to disable browser caching. Normally you should allow browser caching but for some pages with secure content it is better not to allow this.

Improved handling of user time zones for display of dates

Added column sorting in Shared Files Module

Improved redirect logic when you access a page that requires authentication, instead of just directing to the  Access Denied page, if you are not authenticated it directs to login and then from there back to the requested page. Only then will it redirect to Access Denied if you are not in a role allowed to access the page.

Fixed bug where Require Email Confirmation setting caused an error on the registration page (this only affected the MySQL version)

Fixed enter key behavior on all forms, this issue was only affecting skins with the Search Input displayed

Improved usability in PageLayout.aspx

Improved usability in Url Manager

Current Status of mojoPoral 2.x on Mono/Linux

The source code for mojoPortal includes an up to date Solution for MonoDevelop (mojoportal.mds) and this Solution can be compiled in MonoDevelop (at least if running the latest Mono from svn). However it currently does not run at all.

I am still optimistic that we will get mojoPortal 2.x running on Mono by the end of March 2007, I'll keep you posted.
