I'm happy to announce the release of mojoPortal 188.8.131.52, its available now on the download page.
New this release:
A lot of work has gone into the Setup routine this version to make things much smoother for installation and upgrade. As I mentioned in my previous post, setup is now driven primarily by xml config files so that third party developers can easily make their own features participate in the setup process and you can even leave out built in features. I had mentioned in the previous post that I didn't have automatic schema creation and upgrade working in Firebird Sql, but now I have got it working so creation of the database objects is fully automated for clean installation and upgrades in all data layers. You just create a database, set the connection string, make the Data folder writable by the web process. Then navigate to yoursiteroot/Setup/Default.aspx and the setup process does the rest.
The initial pages that get created are also driven by xml config files so you can specify what pages to create when packaging builds of mojoPortal based applications and you can put instances of features on the page. There are also xml files that allow adding additional items to the Administration Menu. You can even customize the Setup page with your own branding in the header.
Google SiteMap Generator
Also as mentioned in a previous post, we now have an automatic google site map feature.
Added an Error log viewer in the Administration Menu
Changed the Child Page Menu rendering to be more like a Site Map of pages beneath the parent.
bug fixes for bugs reported since last release
As always be sure and back everything up before doing an upgrade and post in the forums if you run into difficulty. When you upload the new files to the web I suggest you upload the Setup folder first before uploading the rest of the files. That way you can be sure all the setup scripts have arrived on the server before the Setup routine gets invoked.
