PivotX 2.2 beta 2 released..

We've just released PivotX 2.2 beta 2. Just like with the first beta, we were one week behind schedule, but there were some quirks we wanted to fix before this release. 

Currently, version 2.2 is feature-complete, so we'll take one more iteration to straighten out the issues that people find with this release, before we consider this version stable. Expect the 2.2 RC in a week or two, and the 2.2.0 final release a week after that. 

In the meantime we're continuing work on new features that will be added in the near future. PivotX 2.3 will have a new feature to easily make (and maintain) multilingual website. Ideas for PivotX 3 are still being worked on, but so far we're exited about the way it's shaping up. 

Back to version 2.2: This beta contains fixes for the Debug Bar, the new Entries Overview screen, and the new uploader. It also contains one important new feature: There's a new handler for the way PivotX inserts code to certain parts of a rendered page. This will make it far easier to add Javascript and CSS includes to the correct locations in your pages, and it is smart enough to do it only when required. 

For now we still wouldn't advise against using this PivotX 2.2 beta on production websites, unless you like living on the edge. If you encounter issues with this release, please post about it in this forum thread

The beta release can be downloaded from this location: pivotx.net/files/pivotx_22b2.zip (or pivotx.net/files/pivotx_22b2.tgz, if you prefer .tgz files). For setup instructions, we 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.

Just installed the new beta and have just one question about it. I can’t see much different when uploading/selecting images. What exactly changed? I remember an earlier request: the possibility to view thumbnails when selecting images (that are already uploaded) for an entry or page. Now it’s only a list with files. Thumbnails makes selecting images much easier.

It would be nice that PivotX 2.3 (or 3.0) comes out with sqlite support.

@Willem: When you upload images, the standard Windows file selector dialog should appear. In that dialog, you can select thumbnail view. (I haven’t tested on Mac or Linux.)

@paolo: Sqlite support is planned for PivotX 3.0.

What willem is asking for, is thumbnails when selecting images that are already uploaded. This is currently a simple list. PivotX 3 will have a new Image editor and organizer, that can show thumbnails for these lists.

Bob is right…but both thanks for answering. I always look forward to new PivotX releases. I have several other suggestions for PivotX 3, but the thumbnail feature is an important one.

@Willem You can add feature requests in the feedback forum (the green “FEEDBACK” button on the left side of this side). Please do!

I don’t mean to criticize, but does it makes sense to publish a release schedule and then don’t follow it? With it, I look forward to the next release. Without it, I just notice it when there’s a new release.
