Wait! March already? Where did December go?
Is it too late to wish you all a happy new year? Probably. Yes…
However, it’s not to later to deliver a Happy 2017!!
A lot of releases, right? Indeed. We have switched to releasing more often, and we try to deliver as many bug fixes as possible as quickly as possible. Thank you all for your bug reports, and as always thank you for including screenshots which make it easy for us to narrow down on the problem much quicker.
Now let’s not forget new features! 6.8.x was packed with new features and the recently released 6.9.0-beta adds another layer. 6.9.1 is also just around the corner with some more.
Here are a few of our favorite new features added in 6.8 and 6.9:
- Ability to attach files to new posts in the front office (useful for forums) and in the back-office without saving post first
- Ability to attach an image to each category and to use it as a fall-back for posts without an image in the Universal Item List Widget
- Ability to attach an image to image and logo widgets instead of providing a relative filepath
- Single post display is now controlled through widgets
- Analytics aggregation can keep infinite history of visits in the DB. See Global Hits Summary
- PhpBB3 Import
- … and a lot of usability improvements.
Next stop: 6.9.1! And that’s a loaded one! Stay tuned! ;)
Here’s a very quick update, just to let you know what’s coming up…
But first, we really recommend that everyone upgrades to version 6.7.6 which has been released a few weeks ago. Version 6.7.7 is also just around the corner. The included auto-upgrade makes it easy to apply any new upgrade.
Also, if you haven’t checked out the skins repository lately, have a look. We released several new skins; for example: the Ark Blog Skin. At this point, we recommend that everyone switches to a modern responsive skin. The selection is wide enough for everyone to find something that suits their needs. And if not, please post some screenshots of what you’d like in the comments here ;)
Then, in October you can expect a first release of b2evolution 6.8.0, which will be packed with lots of improvements and a few new features.
Finally, we are working in parallel on b2evolution 7.0, which will introduce some major new features. Stay tuned! ;)
Just a quick update: this site (b2evolution.net) is now running on b2evolution version 6.6.8-stable.
We will release this version 6.6.8 promptly. Update: now released!
We have also made a lot of progress on the development branch, which is the branch from which we drew version 6.7.0-alpha a couple of months ago… We have added so many things now that we’re not quite sure what the next release will be called, but it will be an “alpha” again ;)
2015 has been pretty intense for b2evolution! So many things have changed! If you haven’t been paying attention, or have been lagging in upgrading, now is a good time to check out what you missed…
Let’s recap what happened over the past 365 days:
Believe it or not, we were still releasing one of those old 5.x versions. 5.2.1-stable to be exact. We’ll spare you the screenshot – it looks so outdated you wouldn’t believe it was from 2015 :p
Although we were still on the old system (5.2.2), we started to advertise the possibility to use the Auto Upgrade Procedure in order to make upgrade/maintenance easier than ever. Yet, it seems it’s been a long time since we last had to do manual upgrades…
A major milestone: 6.0.0-alpha was released, and with this: a completely new look & feel for both the front-office & back-office of b2evolution.
Version 6.0.0 came with full Bootstrap Responsive Design, private/restricted-access Blogs (which we actually started calling Collections, since they are more than just blogs…) as well as an email capture widget for building mailing lists…Full story »
We had a pretty productive summer!
First, we released b2evolution 6.6 in July and followed up with a couple of maintenance releases to polish it all the way up to “super stable” ;)
The latest version is 6.6.3. Make sure you upgrade! Remember you can use the auto-upgrade feature which makes it a 5 minute operation.

We are working on new skins for b2evolution v6. They will all be responsive (RWD) and based on Bootstrap.
The first new design we released earlier this week is the Horizon Blog Skin. It shows you how the Bootstrap framework can be transformed into something completely different from its basic look.
We are checking all skins from the skins repository for compatibility with b2evolution v6. When possible we also make small fixes so you don’t have to wait for the original authors to make them.
The list of “version 6 validated” skins grows daily… Check out the skins repository »
You may have noticed that the b2evolution.net site is now powered by b2evolution v6.6 and that we have started upgrading sections (skins) to bootstrap skins, effectively making this site responsive as well.
One major improvement so far is the forums section.
A few sections like the homepage use more complex skins which we haven’t migrated yet, but it should be a matter of days now…
More skins for b2evo v6, a completely renewed website and a manual update…
Stay tuned! ;)
