[ANN] Typo 5.2 for Rails 2.2 released



We’re very pleased and proud to announce the release of Typo 5.2
“Helmut Newton” for Rails 2.2, the famous blogging engine, 4 months
after our last release.

Typo 5.2 is more than a simple port from Rails 2.0.2 to Rails 2.2,
it’s a major, deep, rewrite of the application. We’ve ditched lot of
code, aiming at stability and performance, dividing Typo’s memory
footprint by 4 on some large blogs.

We’ve also fixed a huge, very huge amount of bugs, too many to be told
here, actually, from functionnal aberrations to security breaches. See
the CHANGLOG for more information.

There are also some new features.

  • A brand new admin, focusing on both efficiency and usability.
  • The new editor, coming with easy to use XHTML quicktags toolbar for
    people who don’t like FCK Editor.
  • Search engine optimization everywhere on your blog. Too much to say
  • A new theme catalogue, allowing you to browse and download up to
    date themes from your Typo install.
  • Our old code syntax highlighting plugin has been replaced with
  • Excerpts, that allow you to display on your index something
    completely different as on your article, which won’t appear on your
    RSS feed.
  • Our live search, which was so hype 2 years ago has been
    replaced with a more traditionnal and clearer search engine and left
    as a plugin.

And many more you can read about on the official release note:
