Apache Roller 5.0 RC1

It's been a while since the BETA (over 6 months) but we now have a release candidate for Apache Roller 5.0 available for testing. This site is running Apache Roller 5.0 RC1 right now, as you can see in the itty bitty screenshot below:


Here's a What's New in Roller 5.0 page that summarizes what has changed since 4.0. One thing I forgot to mention on that page was that Roller now uses ROME Propono 1.0 for AtomPub and Roller 5.0's AtomPub support has been successfully tested with MarsEdit and Windows Live Writer.


works like a charm! now a rating plugin/implementation and threaded comments... ;-)

Hi OliBlogger, I left out download links because we're not supposed to publicize "Release Candidate" builds -- they are really just for testing purposes. You can find download links and more information here in this mail list message. - Dave

Migration tip: don't forget to copy your custom themes. One more thing: in roller.log I found: ERROR 2010-05-09 16:27:16,127 IndexOperation:beginWriting - ERROR creating writer java.io.IOException: Cannot create directory: /home/dave/roller_data/search-index Any thoughts? Thanks.

Make sure you set your search index dir property and it points to a directory that exists. The default value is '${user.home}/roller_data/search-index'. Please take further questions to the mailing list. Thanks, Dave
