We’ve released version 1.0 RC5 about a day and a half ago and we are using it as a temporary patch version until we release the final 1.0 version possibly in the next 10 days. There are a number of fixes from RC4 and a few new features, but most of those are changes made to improve SEO URLs and foreign language support.RC5 Changelog:
- Many SEO updates and fixes
- Better foreign language support for UTF-8 Characters
- Future upgrades will automatically make edits to your language file so after 1.0 final you will never need to manually update it.
- Group admins can now be notified by email when a user requests to join a Private or Restricted group
- About page is now a “page”, editable from the Admin Pages section
- Related links now hides itself when no results are found
- Password reset now sends a more detailed email to users
- Google search method removed.
- ReCaptcha now better blends in to the Wistie template
- Multiple sidebar widgets were moved into modules
We are continuing to work on improving foreign language support and thanks to forum user Techkr who has contributed Thai translation files we are prepared to launch Pligg 1.0 with at least 1 language other than English. We hope that more translators will be contributing their languages to the Pligg translation project so that we can have several languages out soon after 1.0 is released.
