  • Cuyahoga 1.5.1 released

    This is a maintenance and bugfix release without any major new features.


    • Improved stability. The module loader has been reworked to behave better under high load.
    • Upgraded NHibernate to 1.2.0 and Castle to 1.0 RC3, so module developers can leverage lots of new features.
    • Numerous bug fixes and improvements, see the release notes for a complete overview.

    The packages are available available here.

    This is not a drop-in replacement for existing Cuyahoga 1.5.0 installations with custom modules. Because we upgraded to NHibernate 1.2.0, custom modules that use NHibernate have to be upgraded to be compatible with this version. See the NHibernate 1.2.0 migration guide for the neccesary steps.

    After this release, we're continuing development on 2.0 and also, there is going to be some cool new stuff on CuyahogaContrib soon like new modules and AJAX extensions.

    And finally, a call to all CuyahogaContrib developers that are not on the dev mailing list: please make a release for the previous 1.5.0 version (if the module is stable, of course) and then upgrade your modules to 1.5.1.

    Thanks everybody who contributed to this release!

  • Experiment with ASP.NET MVC

    Currently, we're rebuilding the admin site with Castle MonoRail, but we've also done a little experiment with the CTP version of ASP.NET MVC. Anybody interested can download it here, or get the stuff from SVN: https://cuyahoga.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/cuyahoga/experiments/Cuyahoga-MVC.

    I have some mixed feelings about it. At this moment, MonoRail is cleary the better (more mature) platform but ASP.NET MVC looks promising and it has the Microsoft label that will attract more people (like it or not).

  • Status update

    Just a little update to let you all know what's going on currently with Cuyahoga development.

    Cuyahoga 2.0 development
    Max has just commited the foundation for content abstraction, categorization and versioning to the trunk. More details about this will follow shortly. For people working off the trunk: be warned that this is now a huge work-in-progress area so no guarantees about any stability whatsoever.

    New Wiki and bugtracker
    In the next weeks we are going to use Trac as integrated solution for the wiki and bugtracking. Although Jira has served us well during the years, the advantage of having everything integrated made us decide to switch. We will shutdown the wiki at sourceforge.

    Database support
    It has always been a wish to support more databases. Because we're using NHibernate we can theoretically support every database that NHibernate supports. The only reason we didn't do this is the huge amount of work that is involved with creating and maintaining all database scripts for the different platforms.
    Fortunately, the guys at Datanamic were so kind to donate a license of their product Dezign for Databases (Expert edition). This is going to make database maintenance a lot easier.
    The goal is to add support for Firebird (1.5 and 2.0) and Oracle (9i, 10g) for the upcoming releases.

    AJAX support for modules (including ASP.NET AJAX)
    Lately, there has been a lot of activity in this area by several community members. We'll try and combine the idea's in a single add-on package (Cuyahoga.Web.Extensions) that will enable Ajax development for the current 1.5.0 release.

  • Migrated to a new server

    We moved the Cuyahoga project website to a new server. For the last year, the site was hosted by Softwyre who were so kind to host the site on their servers for free. Thank you guys for having us. The service has been excellent!

    The reason for moving the site is that my company Taiga has its own colocated server where we now have full control of everything and loads of bandwidth.

    During migration, we (finally) upgraded this site to Cuyahoga 1.5.0 on .NET 2.0 and the forum is now a slightly modified version of YetAnotherForum 1.9.0. Everything should still work as before, but please leave a comment if you experience an issues.
