Apache Roller 5.0 RC2

A couple of weeks ago, I made a second release candidate available for Apache Roller 5.0. Here's the announcement (also available at http://s.apache.org/apacheroller50rc2):

Apache Roller 5.0 Release Candidate RC2 is now available for testing. 
Note that this is NOT a release of the Apache Software Foundation or 
anybody else; this release candidate is for testing purposes only and 
not recommended for production.

   What's new in Roller 5.0:

   Roller 5.0 JIRA change list:
   https://issues.apache.org/jira/sec ... sion=12313828

   Signed binary and source files

   Issues resolved since RC1:

If you would like to help out then please test RC2, discuss 
the problems you encounter here and file specific bugs with steps to
reproduce in the Roller JIRA bug tracking system.

I'm running RC2 on this site and it seems to be holding up just fine so far.


Very nice. The posting from media upload doesn't work If you do it afterwards, then it works ...... It would be nice to have preview and view for vids ;)

Dave, I haven't had time to look at the new code but I had a question about the thumbnail generating features. How are you generating the thumbanils? If you're using the Java Advanced Imaging API it's been my experience that the quality isn't all that great. In some cases it's just horrible. I try and use ImageMagick with im4java whenever I can.

Hi Dave, RC 2 works really great. Installing and getting it up was not so hard.

I was just missing some nice themes for Apache Roller, so I converted two nice ones.

If they are good enough and there is no license problem you can maybe include it in Apache Roller 5.

You can download it here:


Keep on doing the good work.
