  • Web based installer in SVN

    The work on the installers is finished and the code is in SVN. It would be nice if people give it a try and see if it works in their environment (especially Mono/MySQL).

    To install a fresh Cuyahoga from SVN, take the following steps:
    • Checkout the latest sources from the Subversion (SVN) repository @ http://tijnthuus.demon.nl/svn/repos/cuyahoga/trunk. You'll need an SVN client for this like TortoiseSVN if you're on Windows.
    • Build the sources with VS.NET or with NAnt.
    • Create an empty database on you preferred RDBMS.
    • Configure the database connection in the web.config (nhibernate section) and point it to your newly created database.
    • Run!
    To see the module installer in action, go to 'modules' in the site administration. There you can install the Downloads module (the others are installed with the core).

    For the very brave of us: if you're running 0.8.2 you can deploy the files from the Web directory to your 0.8.2 installation after building and see what happens :).

  • A little update

    There hasn't been much development activity lately with Cuyahoga. This is mainly because I was distracted with another project, but most work of my part over there is done. Time to restart development here :).

    On a side note: from the server statistics it appears that version 0.8.2 has been running rock-solid. Are there any users out there who will share their experiences with 0.8.2?

  • Cuyahoga 0.8.2 released

    A new release of Cuyahoga.

    Highlights are:
    • A node can link to an external page or site. This is particulary useful for integrating existing applications in the main navigation (like dasBlog ;)).
    • Alternative urls (https, other port numbers) are supported. Thanks to Tomislav Tustonic.
    • Fixed issues with delayed display of new or deleted nodes and sections that were introduced with switching to NHibernate's second level cache.
    The sources can be downloaded at the usual place.

    I hope this will be the last release in the 0.8.x series. The main goal of the next release (0.9) is improvement of the modules (including a module installer and a module development guide).

  • New domain name

    Cuyahoga has its own domain! It is cuyahoga-project.org and the site is accessible at http://www.cuyahoga-project.org. Unfortunately, the forum doesn't work anymore from the old location because it has its virtual url hardcoded in the web.config.

    Please update your bookmarks, rss subscriptions and links. If you happen to find a broken link or something else that might be related to the new domain, leave a comment.

  • Cuyahoga 0.8.1 released

    For the first time a new Cuyahoga release without any new features! Only bug fixes and some improvements.

    The main goal of this release was to improve stability and performance, especially under heavy load. Unfortunately, one issue turned out to be a real show stopper. I finally decided to throw away Cuyahoga's own object caching mechanism and utilize NHibernate's second-level caching. Now everything is more stable than ever, although the performance has suffered a little because Cuyahoga can't build pages anymore without hitting the database at every request (which was possible with the old solution).

    See the release notes for the complete list of fixes and improvements. I highly recommend everybody who is using Cuyahoga at this moment to upgrade to 0.8.1.
