Yesterday we released a new version of Community Server: Community Server 2007.1
This release includes all the bug fixes in Service Packs 1 & 2 as well as new bug fixes since Service Pack 2. More importantly it contains a number of very important security updates and we recommend upgrading as soon as possible.
Upgrade from Community Server 2007
New Installs of Community Server 2007.1
- Performance work. This release includes performance changes we’re making for Community Server 2008. Mostly this is SQL and Cache updates and changes. For Community Server 2008 we have some larger plans which include forking the data provider and data layer for our Enterprise Edition to support more distributed scaling.
- Email updates. We’ve done some clean-up and improvements to how emails are handled (both incoming and outgoing). This also includes better enforcement of options users can set for if they want emails sent through the site or not.
- Services APIs. Updates to the blog metablog APIs to better support tools such as LiveWriter keywords as well as support for excerpts, read more, auto-discovery, and post names.
- New Basic Theme. Added the new basic theme which is a really simple theme that can provide an easy starting place for people new to theming a Community Server site.
- Updates for Reporting. Community Server 2007.1 will support with the new Telligent Enterprise Reports when it is released later this fall.
- 75+ bug fixes. see the detailed list.
Originally we planned to release this as Service Pack 3. However, because we included more than just bug fixes we’ve decided to call this a “point” release.
