Just a little update to let you all know what's going on currently with Cuyahoga development.
Cuyahoga 2.0 development
Max has just commited the foundation for content abstraction, categorization and versioning to the trunk. More details about this will follow shortly. For people working off the trunk: be warned that this is now a huge work-in-progress area so no guarantees about any stability whatsoever.
New Wiki and bugtracker
In the next weeks we are going to use Trac
as integrated solution for the wiki and bugtracking. Although Jira has served us well during the years, the advantage of having everything integrated made us decide to switch. We will shutdown the wiki at sourceforge.
It has always been a wish to support more databases. Because we're using NHibernate
we can theoretically support every database that NHibernate supports. The only reason we didn't do this is the huge amount of work that is involved with creating and maintaining all database scripts for the different platforms.
Fortunately, the guys at Datanamic
were so kind to donate a license of their product Dezign for Databases
(Expert edition). This is going to make database maintenance a lot easier.
The goal is to add support for Firebird (1.5 and 2.0) and Oracle (9i, 10g) for the upcoming releases.
AJAX support for modules (including ASP.NET AJAX)
Lately, there has been a lot of activity in this area by several community members. We'll try and combine the idea's in a single add-on package (Cuyahoga.Web.Extensions) that will enable Ajax development for the current 1.5.0 release.
