It is with great pleasure that the Bricolage development team
the release of Bricolage 1.8.0. The culmination of over 15 months in
development, with contributions from over 20 independent developers,
and new features sponsored by numerous organizations world-wide,
version 1.8.0 represents a significant new pinnacle for the
open-source content management and publishing system. This release
offers more new features, improvements, and performance gains than
previous release. There are so many, in fact (over 120), that they
can't effectively be included in this email. Here are some of the
* Support for managing multiple sites from a single Bricolage
installation. Each site has its own categories, templates,
types, and workflows, and collaboration across sites is supported
document aliasing and shared workflow desks.
* Significant performance boosts to search queries and URI
* Email document distribution, which can be used to email the
generated by an output channel to one or more email addresses.
* A greatly simplified and flexible templating and element API.
* Template sandboxes to enable template development without
interfering with production templates.
* Support for Template Toolkit templates
* New "Publish" and "Recall" permissions, for improved workflow
* Per-user preferences.
* Document formatting at publish time, rather than publish
* New German and Mandarin localizations.
* Image thumbnails and icons for all media documents.
