And, once again, a new version! This one is slightly ahead of plan—a good sign of sustained development activity—and arrives before the upcoming meeting at Mozilla Paris on September 21st.
It features bug fixes, improved antispam filter management (to better address the ongoing plague polluting our favorite blogs), and a few minor improvements here and there, such as the newly implemented transparency for the thumbnails of PNG images.
Your dashboard should offer you to upgrade your installation today or tomorrow (depending on your settings). There's also a patch for the developers who prefer this method.
This branch of Dotclear, containing all versions from 2.5 to 2.5.3, will from now on be under maintenance only, mostly to fix critical errors should there be any. Indeed, we are now focusing our efforts on the next "major" version, 2.6, which we plan to release in the coming weeks (ideally in October, but time does fly...).
Regarding this future version, let's just say that we're very impatient to have it out, because it's much sexier than the current one!
Finally, let's all congratulate JcDenis (and the mother!), esteemed long-term contributor, for the birth of his little boy \o/ Welcome to the baby and best wishes to his parents!
