PivotX 2.1 released!

After a long period of alpha's and beta's, PivotX 2.1 is finally released as a stable version. We recommend this version as an upgrade for everybody who's running either 2.0, 2.0.2 or an older beta version of 2.1.0.

Compared to 2.0, the most important changes are:

  • A new Administration interface for mobile devices (iPhone, Android)
  • A new Bookmarklet
  • Comes with built-in theme and extension for mobile devices
  • Search has weighed results, greatly improving the relevancy of the results.
  • Multi-site support (docs
  • Per directory weblog support (docs)
  • There are a bunch of new extensions available on extensions.pivotx.net
  • Setting and changing the 404-page has been improved
  • A ton of tiny improvements and changes, to make the platform more stable and consistent
  • All internally used libraries were updated to the latest versions (jQuery, TinyMCE, etc.)
  • Bugs! Lots of bugs were fixed!

The stable release can be downloaded from this location: pivotx.net/files/pivotx_210.zip (or pivotx.net/files/pivotx_210.tgz, if you prefer .tgz files). For setup instructions, I point you to our documentation: Getting the files & installing. If you're having trouble downloading the files, you can also download them from our sourceforge mirror

This is the last release to officially support PHP 4.x. The next release will be PHP 5.x only.

The next stable release will not take nearly as long as this one, though. We're working on a roadmap for new features and improvements, so that we'll be able to release stable versions more often. We'll post about the details on that soon, in a new blog posting.

Downloading the latest version and putting it over my 2.1RC reverted it to 2.0.2 it says to me when logging into the dashboard. Is the downloadable version the latest?

Thanks for reporting this issue. http://pivotx.net/files/pivotx_latest.zi.. was indeed version 2.0.2. It’s fixed now.

Great!!! Gonna install the latest on all the sites I’ve set up using PivotX. Only would love to know why I should download “The beta version can be downloaded from this location:” ;-)

Jarno: Ah, that’s a copy/pasta typo by me. Will fix, thanks for noticing!
