Dear all,

Since the last release of OpenACS was about a year ago, it becomes time for a new release! I've put together a beta release of OpenACS 5.9.1 [1] containing the packages of the oacs-5-9 branch. The beta release of 5.9.1 differs from OpenACS 5.9.0 by the following figures

 3348 files changed, 311853 insertions(+), 152770 deletions(-)
The rough summary is in [2], the detailed summary is in the changelog [3]. There will be a more complete summary provided for the final release.

The tar file contains 3 new packages to make richtext-editors pluggable:

  • richtext-ckeditor4
  • richtext-tinymce
  • richtext-xinha
Below is a listing of the packages ordered by the number of changes (sum of insertion and deletions) giving some indication where the development happened (although the high number of changes in ref-timezones comes from a timezone data update and the change in acs-templating comes from the deletion of the rich-text editor there)

After the release of OpenACS 5.9.1, the development will continue on cvs HEAD, and the oacs-5-9 branch will be stable, maybe receiving some bug fixes.

Gustaf,

Much admiration for how masterfully you've overseen the maintenance and expansion of a grand mansion and grounds, which otherwise would fall into disrepair and desuetude. Instead of weeds and large cracks in the facade, we see azaleas and daffodils, porticos and pools.

Dear all,

one more beta release of OpenACS 5.9.1 is available via http://openacs.org/projects/openacs/download/ . This differs from the first beta by some glitches found while testing the first beta release. The new archive contains just the core packages, a full archive of all packages from the oacs-5-9 branch will follow.
