Change Log

List of Calagator releases and changes, with the latest at the top:

v1.0.0

* [!] This release completely changes the way in which Calagator is distributed, moving from a standalone Rails app to a [Rails engine](http://guides.rubyonrails.org/engines.html). Instead of deploying Calagator instance from a modified version of this code, Calagator is now included as a gem within a new Rails app. Please review the updated installation instructions in INSTALL.md.
* If you are upgrading a site based on an earlier version of Calagator, please [drop us a line](http://groups.google.com/group/calagator-development/). We've recently upgraded [calagator.org](http://calagator.org) and can help to point you in the right direction.
* [THEME] The theme system has been removed, favoring the [view overriding](http://guides.rubyonrails.org/engines.html#overriding-views) functionality provided by Rails engines.

This works much the same way as the previous theme system, allowing any Calagator view to be overridden by creating a file at the corresponding path within your app's app/views/calagator directory. * [SETTING] The YAML-based settings and secrets mechanisms have been replaced with an initializer inside the host application. See INSTALL.md for details. * [MIGRATION] Database migrations are now installed into your host application. * [DEPENDENCY] Upgraded to Rails 4.2.11.1. * Numerous additional dependency upgrades and bugfixes.
