Blog / General / News / FlatPress is now on Mastodon 🐘

FlatPress is now on Mastodon 🐘

2021-03-28_mastodon_fp.pngYou know our Twitter account @FlatPress, right? Well, you might say, “but FlatPress says in its FAQ it wants to make its users independent from such platforms!”. And you’re right!

From now on, you also find the FlatPress project on Mastodon. This is a social network service which works quite similar to Twitter. The main difference is the absence of one single central instance that controls everything. Instead, Mastodon has many independent instances which work together. The FlatPress account resides on the Fosstodon instance.

So if you already have a Mastodon account, feel free to follow @flatpress@fosstodon.org. And if not, why not give it a try?

All the best
Arvid

Blog / News / Releases / New release: FlatPress 1.2 “Legato”

New release: FlatPress 1.2 “Legato”

2021-02-07_legato.jpgHi folks,

after an intensive beta testing phase (thank you all for your efforts there!), I can finally announce the release of FlatPress 1.2.

We continue our lovely tradtion of naming our releases with musical terms. “Legato” means playing tones smoothly connected, and this is what the new release represents: FlatPress is smoothly evolving, 1.2 does not mark any hard cut.

What’s new?

Version 1.2 brings FlatPress to PHP 7.4 (finally!) and PHP 8.0. Also, it contains some security fixes. We updated a few libraries, and the BBCode plugin knows some more tricks. Also, many bugs are fixed, thanks for reporting!

And, to get FlatPress even more international, many language packs found their way into the standard distribution: French, Japanese, Brazilian Portuguese, Italian (finally!), and Spanish. Big shout out to all translators - thanks a lot!

Please see the changelog for a complete list of changes.

How to update?

Updating from 1.1 to 1.2 is very simple, please see the update instructions on the download page.

Happy blogging!

Have fun with the new version of your favourite blogging tool! And please report any bugs you may encounter on the FlatPress support forum.

All the best,
Arvid
