Refinery CMS version 2.1.4 has been released. For a full list of changes, please refer to the changelog.
As a brief update, we're working very hard on the release of version 3.0.0 which will include many new features, including official Rails 4.1 support and making several core extensions optional. This includes the visual editor, the authentication and the dashboard. For a full reference, please again refer to the changelog which will be updated up until the final release...
We have just released version 2.0.4 of Refinery CMS. This release builds on our previous releases and adds many improvements and bug fixes. Importantly, we have fixed a security issue which means if you are running any previous builds in the 2.0.x release that you should upgrade to 2.0.4 as soon as possible.
If you're at Railsconf 2012 in Austin, we should get together!
Tom Brooke has booked us a slot at BohConf on Monday from 2 to 3pm in room 406/408. If you can show up, awesome! If not, feel free to say hi to Rob Yurkowski in the halls — he's the rather tall guy with a white cap.
The Refinery core team is immensely proud to announce the addition of Rob Yurkowski!
Rob has been working really hard behind the scenes since before the release of version 2.0.0 and he was instrumental on getting it out on time. He's kept our whole team focused on the next version, has collated our feature requests and issues, has been working on updating our documentation, and has also been performing a lot of support on the mailing list. In short, we love him!
The Refinery CMS Core team is proud to announce the release of the next major version of Refinery — Refinery CMS 3. It's the most amazing, most technically advanced Refinery CMS ever released and we think you'll just love it.
Refinery 3 comes hot on the heels of Refinery 2, and reflects some of the big technological leaps forward that have occurred in the past four weeks:
Refinery 3 lets you change the back-end mount path (no more /refinery! Yay!)
Refinery 2.0 makes a number of very important updates to the project. Chief amongst these, Refinery now supports Rails 3.2 and the asset pipeline, and is now mountable as a Rails engine. You can see a list of the most notable changes in the change log.
It's been just under three years since David Jones changed Refinery CMS from being a closed source project...
There has been a significant amount of development toward version 2.0.0 of Refinery CMS and it's shaping up to be a really great version but until then it may not seem straightforward to actually use this version. Tony Semana has written a walkthrough titled "Installing RefineryCMS with Rails 3.1.3" which described the process of setting up a new website with the upcoming 2.0.0 version of Refinery CMS. Thanks, Tony!
We love it when people use Refinery CMS as it is being developed but...
