This is a maintenance and bugfix release without any major new features.
- Improved stability. The module loader has been reworked to behave better under high load.
- Upgraded NHibernate to 1.2.0 and Castle to 1.0 RC3, so module developers can leverage lots of new features.
- Numerous bug fixes and improvements, see the release notes for a complete overview.
The packages are available available here.
This is not a drop-in replacement for existing Cuyahoga 1.5.0 installations with custom modules. Because we upgraded to NHibernate 1.2.0, custom modules that use NHibernate have to be upgraded to be compatible with this version. See the NHibernate 1.2.0 migration guide for the neccesary steps.
After this release, we're continuing development on 2.0 and also, there is going to be some cool new stuff on CuyahogaContrib soon like new modules and AJAX extensions.
And finally, a call to all CuyahogaContrib developers that are not on the dev mailing list: please make a release for the previous 1.5.0 version (if the module is stable, of course) and then upgrade your modules to 1.5.1.
Thanks everybody who contributed to this release!
