there’s a lot of change going on in the FlatPress project lately - some of it you might notice, some not. I’d like to keep you folks up to date.
Before I dive into the details, here’s the tl;dr for the impatient reader:
Not much to see for now, the big things will happen in February.
Still reading? Thank you :) Well then, let’s take a look at the details.
New FlatPress release
You may have noticed (and propably updated to) FlatPress release 1.0.3.php7. It looks and feels exactly like the previous release 1.0.3, but runs under PHP7 and supports HTTPS.
Use the update package to update your FlatPress instance from 1.0.3 to 1.0.3.php7, it’s really easy! (For update instructions, see the download page.)
The upcoming release 1.1 is actually quite finished (see the changelog); I’d just like to add a few more language packs. Feel free to get the latest snapshot from GitHub to play around with!
I plan to release FlatPress 1.1 in February, when we have the new forum online (see below).
I did a little polishing on flatpress.org the last weeks; a shiny new version of this website will be published later. You guess the date: February.
The old Vanilla forum is quite outdated, and moreover, registration is broken. This sucks if you need (or want to provide) support :(
I will open a completely new forum - in February :)
The FlatPress wiki is a great place to get information about FlatPress, or to download themes and plugins. But it’s also littered by spam users and content.
There will be a complete overhaul (February?^^); but since the user accounts won’t be transferred, you will need to re-register your account.
Did I forget something? Just ask me!
Oh, well: When the new website goes online, there will also be an official flatpress.org mail address - finally :)
I hope you guys out there feel good about the way this nice little open source project goes. Please send me your feedback and suggestions! And, more important: Spread the word - tell everybody that FlatPress will be new and fresh and shiny. In February ;)
All the best,
