mojoPortal Released

I'm very happy to announce that I just released mojoPortal on the download page. This is a significant new release with major improvements since the last release.

Mono support!

We are finally back to one version of mojoPortal for all platforms, though we do provide a separate build for Mono. Its the same code but with WebParts left out of the compilation. In svn the old 1.1 framework version has been moved to branches/1.x and the 2.0 .NET version is now moved into trunk. There may yet be bugs so consider this release experimental on Mono. Those who wish to upgrade existing sites running the 1.x version of mojoPortal on Mono may want to wait and see what kind of bug reports come in before attempting an upgrade. I would highly advise making a copy of your site and db and upgrade the copy. This way you can go back if things don't work out.

New Multi Sites Feature based on first folder after site root
This feature was sponsored by one of my customers as open source development.

New Feature for Visually Partitioning Sites
This feature was also sponsored by one of my customers as open source development.

New Editor Provider Model now supporting use of both FCKeditor and TinyMCE

With the provider model, it will be possible to implement providers for other editors as well.

Improved Markup Semantics and CSS Organization

See my previous post for more details on this. Since the rendered markup has changed, those upgrading from recent versions who have custom skins may need to tweak them to account for the different markup.

A Few New Skins

RightToLeft1, RightToLeft2 and samar, are all right to left oriented skins contributed by A.Samarian

I also implemented a new TreeView menu option and created 2 skins to illustrate, treeviewmenu1 and treeviewmenu2. I discussed this in a previous post, for large sites, the treeview menu can improve performance because the nodes load on demand.

Admin Section has moved

The admin pages have been moved out of the content system and into dedicated physical pages. The main Admin menu is now accessed by clicking the key icon at the top of the site.

As always, if you have any problems, post in the forums and I will try to help.

Before upgrading be sure and back up your site and your db. If possible upgrade a copy then cut over to it. More note to help with upgrading.

Huge thanks to Alexander Yushchenko for all his help in providing Quality Assurance testing and feedback. His help has been instrumental in improving the quality of mojoPortal.

Also thanks to the Mono Team for their continued support and making it possible to run mojoPortal on Linux.

Does that mean that /branches/2.x is no longer available and everyone should switch to /trunk from it?
