Blog / General / Berlin community meetup in March

Berlin community meetup in March

Hi folks,

Fraenkiman and DeltaLima want to organize a FlatPress community meetup in Berlin at the end of March. This is a great opportunity to meet “your” coders and other FlatPress users.

Bring your ideas, questions and suggestions, and have a great time talking to other FlatPressers, solve your plugin or theme issues and get inspiration for your FlatPress blog.

If you happen to be in the area at that time, please let us know on the Support Forum:
https://forum.flatpress.org/viewtopic.php?t=716

All the best,
Arvid

FlatPress 1.3 “Andante”: First beta version released

2024-01-20_beta.jpgHi folks, thank you very much for your patience regarding the release of the next FlatPress version. We’ve come a long way, especially the upgrade of the Smarty template engine created a lot of issues.

But the effort was worth it: Today I can proudly announce the start of our first beta test of the upcoming FlatPress 1.3 “Andante”!

The name “Andante” may be seen as a (not entirely serious) allusion to the FlatPress release cycle: We’re not going particularly fast, but steadily we’re going.

Most important improvement of the new version is the PHP 8.1 and 8.2 PHP 8.1, 8.2, and 8.3* compatibility. Also, we added a few helpful plugins and fixed tons of bugs and security issues. And check out all the other improvements like the localized installer!

Please see the Beta 1 release on GitHub to find the detailed change log, a download package and an update package from FlatPress 1.2:

This is a beta version - we strongly recommend not using it in your productive blog yet.
If you want to help testing, please see this topic on the FlatPress support forum.

I explicitly want to thank all the coders, translators and testers who helped creating this new version. FlatPress 1.3 wouldn’t be possible without you! (Cheers, Frank and Matthias! 👋)
See the contributors list to learn about all those great people!

All the best,
Arvid

* Update 2024-01-23: In fact, FlatPress 1.3 “Andante” will happily run under PHP up to 8.3 :)
