  • Cuyahoga 1.7.0 - the 10th anniversary edition

    Cuyahoga was born in 2004. At that time, it was really 'different' from to other .NET applications with its use of NHibernate and the early adoption of the Castle Windsor IoC container. But after 10 years, no new development is done anymore and the 2.0 version never really took off.

    However, there are still quite a few Cuyahoga sites steadily running in production. Most of these are version 1.6. This version was released in 2009 and doesn't run too smooth on current .NET platforms anymore. To enable Cuyahoga on modern .NET platforms and to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Cuyahoga, a new version is released. 

    Downloads are available on SourceForge as always. Check the release notes over there to see what is new. The source code is on GitHub: https://github.com/cuyahogaproject/cuyahoga-1

    The sources will move to be along side the other Cuyahoga versions at beta time. For the time being I will develop here.

    Everybody is encouraged to give this version a test-drive. Any feedback is welcome. There is a dedicated forum for all 2.0-related questions. There is a thread for the Alpha here:

  • That's a different Cuyahoga 2.0!

    Perhaps you have seen it on the forums lately: there have been some serious changes in Cuyahoga development. Originally, we planned to build a complete new admin interface for Cuyahoga 2.0 with ASP.NET MVC and an Alpha version was even released. Unfortunately, I did not have enough time to proceed full speed and the new interface caused some mixed reactions.

    Luckily John Lynch (Constructor) stood up and has 'cooked' his own 2.0 version that was a mixture of the old Cuyahoga 2.0 core, but with a very much improved admin interface. It soon became clear to me that his version was the way to go especially because it caused so many positive reactions.

    So now we have it. A new Cuyahoga 2.0 Alpha version! Get it here and read the official announcement here.

    At the same time I'd like to officially announce that John is now the Lead Developer of Cuyahoga and my role will be more in the background where I'm going support the project with QA and release management.

  • Cuyahoga source code moved to GitHub

    This week, we moved the Cuyahoga source code to GitHub (http://github.com/cuyahogaproject/cuyahoga). This is done for the following reasons:

    • Git makes collaboration much easier;
    • During the latest release cycle, the slow SourceForge SVN service was a major source of irritation.

    Check out the following resources for a nice GitHub introduction:
