Frog 0.9.5 stable released

The Frog development team is pleased to announce that we’ve released Frog 0.9.5 stable. Some major changes went into this release which make this a significant step towards a 1.0 release.

We would like to highlight some items in the changelog:

For plugin developers, it will be interesting to note that a number of API calls were added that will simplify the work of creating a plugin and should generally speed up development. These are:

  • Plugin::isEnabled($plugin_id) (allows for basic plugin dependancies.)
  • getSetting($var_name, $plugin_id)
  • setSetting($var_name, $value, $plugin_id)
  • getAllSettings($plugin_id)
  • setAllSettings($array, $plugin_id)

We also added a new core plugin called “skeleton” to help out new plugin developers by setting up a basic plugin as an example.

In other news, we’ve added a translation template generator to help out translators with translating Frog core and plugins. Please see the comment & link on the right side of the Language selector in the Settings tab of the Administration section in Frog.

We’ve also removed the split that existed between the frontend and backend in Frog 0.9.4. We also fixed a long standing problem with GET variables not being available in Frog’s frontend.

Lastly but certainly not least, we’ve changed the license to GNU General Public License version 3 for Frog and all of its core plugins. Frog uses the GNU GPL with an exception for plugins which allows plugin developers to choose a different license for their plugin under certain conditions. Please see exception.txt in Frog’s root directory for the full text.

Please see the download page.

Family Connections 2.2 RC

With Family Connections 2.2 I wanted to try something a little different.  Usually when I’ve finished development on the new release, I simple do some quick testing and then release it, and fix any bugs in some small follow up releases.  To prevent that from happening this time, I’ve decided to wait on the release of FCMS 2.2 until it has been tested a little better.

Instead, I’m going to do what is called a Release Candidate (RC), which basically means this is the final version of 2.2 unless something major has been found.  This means that you can upgrade to 2.2 (RC) now, if you want to, but users won’t be notified on the upgrade screen that they need to upgrade like they normally do.

I’m going to have my family website upgraded to 2.2 (RC) and do some more thorough testing and in a week or two, if everything is fine, then I’ll release this as FCMS 2.2.  If bugs are found, then I’ll simply fix those and add them to 2.2.

Using a Release Candidate will allow users who can’t wait for the next release to go ahead and upgrade now, and other users can wait until all the kinks are worked out.  So if you do upgrade to 2.2 (RC), please be sure to report any bugs or issues you find.

Download FCMS 2.2 (RC) now.

Family Connections 2.3

And for a sneak peek at what is currently scheduled for the next major release, check out the following list.  Remember that this, can and probably will change.

The eZ Community activities have moved from to

Continuing on addressing more care and dedication to its community, eZ Systems created a dedicated portal for all community-related activities around eZ Publish:

The former eZ Community entry gate, will soon be closed, already replaced by This new place reproduces all knowledge and tools you used before (articles, tutorials, forums), and adds more : blogs, more RSS feeds, content rating, social media features.

This new portal is open to content contribution, and its evolution will be lead by the community itself.

All content from is now migrated to, and smooth redirections are in place so that all old bookmarks keep functioning. Even the RSS feeds were redirected.
The online documentation will not move for now.

I warmly invite you to step by.

Exponent CMS .96 security patch and deprecation

A few helpful updates for everyone.  First, we have provided a security patch for you .96 installs.  Many of you are still running some really old Exponent code, so we want to make sure you guys have the latest patches to keep them running smooth.  It is strongly recommended you

download and install these patches immediately. 

There are two files in this patch that are important:

  1. files/.htaccess
  2. modules/filemanagermodule/actions/picker.php

Just upload them to those exact places on your website, in your current install of Exponent .96 and they will take care of some known security issues.  Make sure you don't miss the .htaccess file, it will be invisible on you system in some cases (if you are not familiar with web development).

.96 will no longer formally be supported

Second, we want to encourage everyone to move on from the .96 codeline into .97.  The .97 codeline is the current stable version, and we have a pre-beta release of the new 2.0 codeline available as well.  Both of these are currently the focus of attention, and we will not continue to support .96 or provide patches. 

Thank you all for your continued support of Exponent CMS!

RADIUS authentication plugin released

The Enano Team is extremely proud to announce the availability of the new RADIUS authentication plugin. This is a work-in-progress plugin that seamlessly sits Enano's entire user system on top of a RADIUS server, greatly enhancing Enano's ability to be integrated into an enterprise or large-scale deployment. We also hope that the code from this plugin can be used as a foundation for many other authentication backends.

There are a number of known issues at this point, but we figured it would be a cool thing to announce, and we do intend to improve this plugin according to your suggestions in the future!
