Welcome to Zotonic!
+Release 0.5.0, released on 2010-10-03
+-------------------------------------
+
+* New features:
+
+** Simpler module system
+ Modules are simpler, do not have to be a fullblown
+ gen_server. Registering z_notifier for modules is made more simpler
+ by using erlang's introspection on modules.
+
+** i18n support through gettext
+ Gettext .po and .pot file support for translations. Templates can
+ be translated per module. Pot files are automatically generated
+ from the templates.
+
+** Pluggable Access Control system
+ The new ACL structure works through pluggable ACL modules. Two ACL
+ modules are included as examples. mod_acl_adminonly, where all
+ users are admins, and mod_acl_simple_roles, which implements a
+ simple role based ACL system.
+
+** Authentication can now be customized and extended.
+ mod_authentication is the basic module used for
+ authentication. This module can be extended. The mod_facebook is an
+ (incomplete) example of such an extender. mod_authentication
+ implements the username/password authentication, including logon
+ and logoff. It also supports 'password forgotten' e-mails.
+
+** User signup
+ Non admin users can sign up using the mod_signup. This module works
+ in harmony with the authentication module and authentication
+ extenders.
+
+** New OTP supervisor hierarchy.
+ The PostgreSQL connection pool is now part of the individual
+ sites. Sites are more isolated and can be individually started,
+ restarted or stopped. It is possible to add and remove sites
+ without restarting Zotonic. Modules are now isolated and the
+ running status of a module is displayed in the admin's module
+ overview.
+
+** A status overview site, zotonic_status.
+ zotonic_status shows the running status of all sites. When logged
+ in, the user can start/stop/restart sites using his browser. It is
+ also possible to do 'hg pull' updates of sites that contain a
+ mercurial repo.
+
+** New ErlyDTL tags: {% inherit %}, {% overrule %}
+
+** New ErlyDTL support for multiple argument {% with %}: {% with a,b as c,d %}
+
+** New ErlyDTL support for filters with multiple parameters.
+
+** New ErlyDTL test set, including regression tests.
+
+** New ErlyDTL filters
+ group_by_title_firstchar, is_visible, pprint, urlize, without_embedded_media.
+
+** Media preview enhancements
+ {% image %} now supports the the following new arguments:
+
+ 'extent' - create a larger image then the original not by scaling
+ up but by adding a border to the image.
+
+ 'removebg' - removes the image's
+ background. It accepts an optional fuzziness parameter (range
+ 0..100).
+
+ 'upscale' - Forces a small image to scale up to the requested
+ dimensions.
+
+** Extended support for Websocket connections.
+ The two newest protocols, as used by Chrome and Safari, are
+ supported.
+
+** mod_development improvements
+ It now supports turning on or off the concatenation of {% lib %}
+ includes as one file or separate files, and can give a live trace
+ of translated templates, showing clearly the template inheritance
+ and selections.
+
+** mod_menu improvements
+ It implements the menu now as a template, easing your own menu implementation.
+
+** mod_emailer improvements
+ It can now inline images into the e-mails
+
+** New: mod_slideshow
+ It can make a slideshow of any collection, you can add your own slide templates.
+
+** New: mod_contact
+ Simple contact form which gets sent over e-mail
+
+** New: mod_facebook
+ Facebook logon
+
+** New: mod_imageclipper
+ A simple javascript image-clipper bookmarklet for grabbing images
+ from other websites.
+
+** New: mod_logging
+ A realtime log of debug messages and errors in the system.
+
+** System wide configuration system (z_config) using a configuration file at 'priv/config'
+
+
+
+* Bugfixes:
+
+** AllowHTML5 audio and video tags (#75)
+** Typo in m_config, line 127. undefind -> undefined (#83)
+** setting initial admin password does not work (#88)
+** After upgrading the code to latest changeset admin authentication causes exception (#91)
+** Menu module does not follow ACL rules (#92)
+** Crash in start.sh using Erlang R14A on Mac OS X 10.6 (#93)
+** Extra Atom Link (#95)
+** Makefiles use rm GNUism (#96)
+** z_email:split_name_email/1 does not what it says it should do (#97)
+** dots in page paths are transformed into dashes (#98)
+** attaching media to pages does not work correctly (#99)
+** After a module crashes, the new dynamic observe_* methods are not re-initialized (#100)
+** setting page path and unique name is broken (#101)
+** IF statements on empty rsc_list structures (#104)
+** When image is too small, providing only a width should not make the image very large (#105)
+** And many various other fixes which users noted on the mailinglist and were fixed quickly.
