Roller 4.0 released



Apache Roller 4.0 has been released and is now available for download.

This is a major new Roller release which includes easier blog theme customization, a much more simple installation/upgrade process, infrastructure improvements and numerous other small fixes. You can get the release files and the official documentation via the Apache mirrors at this page:


And you can read about the new features on the What's New in Roller 4.0 page of the Roller wiki.

Project releases are approved by vote of the Apache Roller Project Management Committee (PMC). Support for a release is provided by project volunteers on the project mailing lists. Additional free support is provided by many other volunteer subscribers to the list. Bugs found in a release may be discussed on the list and reported through the issue tracker.

Roller is a Project of the Apache Software Foundation (ASF), formed by a resolution of the ASF Board of Directors. As an ASF Project, Roller is subject to the ASF Bylaws and the direction of the ASF Board. The user mailing list and issue tracker are the only support options hosted by the Apache Roller project.

Dear Dave, is there a way to make a private weblog in Roller? I want the readers to logon with passsword before they can read my entries in one of the weblog. I like Roller because it is so well design and being a Java programmer, I want to use Java based weblog tool.

Roller does not support private weblogs out-of-the-box, but it should be possible to make some tweaks to Roller's Acegi Security config file (WEB-INF/security.xml) to password protect some URLs (i.e. the blog page and feed URLs of your private blog). You might also need to have add a new 'commenter' role and possibly some custom code to add users with that role. Hope that helps.

- Dave
