Yes, it’s been quite some time after beta 3 release. Now meet the shining beta 4!
IMPORTANT: Beta 4 requires manual update. Auto-update will not work this time. Please read how to update Oxwall manually.
IMPORTANT: A lot of plugins are also updated to take advantage of the new platform. Make sure you update the platform before you update plugins, otherwise you can end up with a broken install.
What’s special about beta 4? Frankly saying we’ve been aggressively adding features to the core through all these betas and these releases could easily be tagged as 1.0, 1.1, 1.2… We’ll behave now and freeze features in beta 4 until the 1.0 stable release.
– Full-size images uploaded to blogs and forum with media panel;
– user input in comments;
– Suport for data import/export.
– New plugin handling framework that allows to make important notifications in admin area about required configuration.
– More robust auto-update framework that will make it possible to update core starting from beta 4.
– Forum, Facebook connect and groups in the main package. Since several plugins became free we threw a couple of those in the main distro.
