  • Cuyahoga 1.0 released

    About a year after its first public release, Cuyahoga 1.0 is available for download. I'd like to thank everybody for contributions, bug reports and constructive criticism.

    I wasn't planning any new features from the 0.9.1 release, but still two new features have crept in (my apologies for that :) ):

    • SearchInput module: a very small module that must be connected to the existing Search module and. The module makes it possible to have a search box on every page in the site when attached to a template. You can see it in action on the Cuyahoga site.

    • The option to create a sample site from the installer. This should make it easier getting things started for the first time.

    For people who use their own customized templates: there is one breaking change in the way how stylesheet declarations are added to the template. See the release notes for details.

    You can download the new release from the Sourceforge site:

    Everybody, have a good 2006!

  • Cuyahoga development in VS.NET 2005 has improved

    The preview of the new ASP.NET web application project model was just released and I decided to give it a try.

    The ASP.NET (VS.NET) guys have done a great job! All the new ASP.NET 2.0 stuff combined with class libraries as projects. They couldn't have chosen a better way to suit Cuyahoga :).

    Now to show that it really works, here's a screenshot of Cuyahoga in a VS.NET 2005 solution with a newly created module and the Cuyahoga.Web project converted to an ASP.NET 2.0 web application project.

    Note that the migration wizard to convert VS.NET 2003 projects to the new VS 2005 model isn't ready yet, but it is not a problem with class library projects. These convert fine. Then, to convert a class library project to a web application project, I just added the line:


    to the Cuyahoga.Web.csproj file and it seems to do the trick.

    To my surprise, I also noticed that the need for IIS has disappeared. After hitting F5, the Cassini server started and ran Cuyahoga nicely on port 8080.

  • Last call for bugs

    Anybody out there who's found a bug or is not comfortable with a certain feature of Cuyahoga? Please file a bug report in Jira. We're almost ready for the 1.0 release and this is the opportunity to get things fixed before 1.0.

    There is no exact release date for 1.0 yet, but it will be there before the end of the year.

  • Good news for ASP.NET 2.0 development with Cuyahoga

    Today, Scott Guthrie announced that VS.NET 2005 will get an alternative project model for web projects. If I understood well, this new model allows developing web applications in class libraries just like it is done in Cuyahoga, but with all the power of the new ASP.NET 2.0 features.

    I'm very very happy with this announcement, since I started getting worried about the upgrade path to ASP.NET 2.0 (that is: building the class libraries works fine, but VS.NET in its current state doesn't support ASP.NET development in class libraries at all).

    The news doesn't have any direct influence on the core development (since I'm determined to support .NET 1.1/Mono 1.0 for a while), but for module development, it might be very interesting to take advantages of the new ASP.NET 2.0 features.

  • Downloads have moved to Sourceforge

    With the last release (0.9.1) there were some complaints about slow and broken downloads. I guess that's the price to pay for cheap web hosting :).

    Anyway, from now the releases are distributed via Sourceforge. Happy downloading!
