Beta test for website parts

Yesterday we installed the new unreleased beta version 0.3.3 for our website to check the beta version for the stable release. Only a few little problems occured while restructuring some contents in Admincenter.
The next step is to fix the known bugs and to update the demo. This will then be the last beta test before we will release the 0.3.3 stable version.
With restructuring some parts of our website we hope to have a better clearness for the visitors of bloofox. Shortly we will also publish the support forums for bloofoxCMS questions. Stay tuned.

2nd edition of version 0.3.2

In the first release of bloofoxCMS 0.3.2 the ChangeLog file didnt include the changes to version 0.3.2 and the update script didnt work. So we updated these two files. The result is a new download package.

There are no other changes between 0.3.2 1st edition and 2nd edition.

bloofoxCMS 0.3.2 stable released

Today is a good day because we could release our new version bloofoxCMS 0.3.2. The main changes are the same like in the beta version which we published about a month ago.

There is one new feature or maybe it's a bugfix, there was a problem with different character sets. The backend will now use the character set which is specified in the first project in your Admincenter installation. That means if you want to create a project with charset windows-1250 you need to set this charset in your project configuration. Then the Admincenter will use this charset as well.

If you want to create two projects with specific charsets you should install bloofoxCMS twice.

The next steps

In the past few months less modifications were done to bfcms. But we got a lot of feedback which is very important for future developments. We'd like to thank all for spending their time on it.
In the next few weeks we are going to work for a new release candidate. a few days ago there were two bugs reported on security blogs and forums. these bugs will be fixed. also we had many feature requests which will be checked to be implemented in one of the next releases.
We also want to revise our website for a better clearness and we still need to work on our documentation, developers guide and a bug/feature request system integration.
We also got some code scripts from users, which will provide us to extend the plugins collection. Thanks a lot!
