wordpress 3.1 released

WordPress 3.1 was released on february 22, 2011.

Features:

  • Internal Linking – click a button for an internal link and it allows you to search for a post or browse a list of existing content and select it for inclusion.
  • Admin Bar – contains various links to useful admin screens. By default, the admin bar is displayed when a user is logged in and visiting the site and is not displayed in admin screens for single blog installs. For multisite installs, the admin bar is displayed both when visiting the site and in the admin screens.
  • Streamlined Writing Interface – new users of WordPress will find the write screen much less cluttered than before, as more of the options are hidden by default. You can click on Screen Options in the top right to bring them back.
  • Post Formats – meta information that can be used by themes to customize presentation of a post. Read more in the article Post Formats.
  • Network Admin – move Super Admin menus and related pages out of the regular admin and into a new Network Admin screen.
  • List-type Admin Screens – sortable columns for list-type screens and better pagination.
  • Exporter/Importer Overhaul – many under the hood changes including adding author information, better handling for taxonomies and terms, and proper support for navigation menus.
  • Custom Content Type Improvements – allows developers to generate archive pages, and have better menu and capability controls. Read more in the article Post Types.
  • Advanced Queries – allows developers to query multiple taxonomies and custom fields.
  • Refreshed Blue Admin Color Scheme – puts the focus more squarely on your content.

With the 3.1 release, WordPress is more of a CMS than ever before. The only limit to what you can build is your imagination.

Posted by kevin under news - No Comments

wordpress 3.0.5

WordPress 3.0.5 is now available and is a security hardening update for all previous WordPress versions.

This security release is required if you have any untrusted user accounts, but it also comes with important security enhancements and hardening. All WordPress users are strongly encouraged to update.

Three point oh point five
Enhances security
Three point one comes soon

The release addresses a number of issues and provides two additional enhancements:

Two moderate security issues were fixed that could have allowed a Contributor- or Author-level user to gain further access to the site.

One information disclosure issue was addressed that could have allowed an Author-level user to view contents of posts they should not be able to see, such as draft or private posts.

Two security enhancements were added. One improved the security of any plugins which were not properly leveraging our security API. The other offers additional defense in depth against a vulnerability that was fixed in previous release.

The 1.3 final version of PrestaShop is considered as being the most accomplished, stable and professional published until now. Many optimizations and fixes have been made to the project to maximize its performance and its international accessibility, including many suggestions and recommendations from the Open-Source community. PrestaShop is now published in three languages: English, Spanish and French.

In terms of technical sophistication, the MySQL performances have been optimized, as well as its template engine based on Smarty. Significant corrections have been made to the prices and taxes system.
Alongside these improvements, a number of important new features have been added to the solution, bringing to more than 200 the number of technical, functional and graphical possibilities of a PrestaShop based e-shop. In addition to these features, extensions are available on the official marketplace of PrestaShop, PrestaStore, whose catalog now offers nearly 700 modules and themes.
“Our goal is to continuously enrich PrestaShop to provide online merchants with an e-commerce software ever more complete, functional and suitable to their needs, while respecting their constraints. PrestaShop needs to be a modular and flexible solution to suit all countries and all activities.” says Igor Schlumberger, PrestaShop co-founder.
