1 Release 0.7.0
2 =============
4 Released on 2011-07-28.
7 New core features
8 -----------------
11 Native SMTP support for sending and receiving e-mails in any
12 Zotonic site. We integrated Andrew Thompson's gen_smtp library
13 which allows us to manage outgoing ánd incoming mails. mod_logging
14 provides a new email log-view for inspecting what mails go in and
15 out.
17 Commandline
18 A "zotonic" shell command. The "" shell command has been
19 replaced by a more generic and more powerful shell command with
20 support for pluggable subcommands.
22 Module repository
23 Zotonic now supports installing system-wide modules which are not
24 part of the core repository. We have created a place where
25 externally contributed modules can be linked at
26 Modules registered on that site can be
27 easily installed through the "addsite" subcommand.
29 Skeleton sites
30 The default website has been replaced by the notion of "skeleton"
31 sites. The "zotonic addsite" command lets you create a new Zotonic
32 website based on one of the (currently two) website templates.

50 new content on the fly.
52 mod_import_wordpress
53 Basic import module for Wordpress WXR file format, allowing you to
54 migrate a Wordpress blog into Zotonic.
57 Discontinued modules
58 --------------------
60 To make Zotonic more lightweight and remove some of the build
61 dependencies, some infrequently used modules have been removed from
62 the core and moved to their own repository, at
63 These modules are
64 mod_search_solr, mod_pubsub, mod_slideshow, mod_broadcast,
65 mod_imageclipper, mod_admin_event and mod_calendar. They can still be

67 command. The mod_emailer module (and its esmtp library) has been
68 removed in favor of the native SMTP sending/receiving capabilities.
70 Each module now also can have its own dependencies by including a
71 "deps" subfolder in the module. This is used for example in the
72 mod_pubsub external module which has the exmpp library as a dependency.
75 Other minor features
76 --------------------
77 * to_json filter for representing template values as JSON objects
78 * split filter for splitting a string

83 * translations of the admin updated and more translations added
86 Bugfixes
87 --------

90 stable and this release aims to be a good step towards the 1.0.
