PivotX 2.0 final has been released.

After two years of hard work, we've just released PivotX 2.0 Final. It's rock solid, does what it has to do, and it does it well. So, now is the time to remove the 'beta' label, and present the official PivotX 2.0. Many, many thanks to Hans, Kevin, Peter and all the others who helped on the forum, with testing or well-meant constructive critisism. Without you guys, we would've never been able to create this product in the state it is in today! :-)

For setup instructions, I point you to our documentation-in-progress: Getting the files & installing. From now on, the latest version can always be downloaded from this location: http://pivotx.net/files/pivotx_latest.zip (or http://pivotx.net/files/pivotx_latest.tgz, if you prefer .tgz files)

Note: If you're upgrading from an older beta version, make sure you've read this post: Upgrading from previous beta releases.

Second Note: If you're upgrading from a Pivot 1.x version, read the following page very carefully: Especially the part about how PivotX templates work quite different from older templates, so you should expect to spend some time with them, if you want to keep them. Otherwise you can just pick a new theme from Themes.pivotx.net.

Upgrading from previous beta releases

If you've upgraded an existing PivotX install before, you know that it's usually pretty easy: Just upload the files, and you're good to go. For the latest beta (12j) we had to change some things internally, though, to prevent problems later on. The most important of these are:

  • We renamed the 'pivot' folder to 'pivotx', to better match the official name.
  • For the same reason we renamed 'pivot_essentials.css' to 'pivotx_essentials.css'. You should update your templates accordingly.
  • We beefed up the security in the Template Engine. [1]

Because of this, upgrading will take a few more steps.
