For the impatient ones, these are the links to the download packages:
As with any other release, LifeType 1.1-beta1 is installed via wizard.php. Both new installations and upgrade from any 1.0.x release are supported. Just make sure not to overwrite your old config/config.properties.php in case you're planning an upgrade.
LifetType 1.1 is feature complete and the development team has set a few goals for this beta release to be totally successful. And we need your help to achieve these goals:
- Update as many translations and possible (only English, Spanish, Catalan, Chinese, Chinese (Taiwan) and Korean) have been updated so far. Please see the guidelines to update translations in the wiki. Please help the development team if you would like to see LifeType in your language!
- Porting as many templates as possible. Not all templates have been ported yet, so if you have contributed a template set in the past, help us update it to work with LifeType 1.1. We even have instructions to help you.
- Porting as many plugins as possible. Not all plugins have been ported yet, although the development team is making an extra effort to port at least the most important ones. Porting plugins is a bit trickier and your plugins may or many not work right away as the API has changed a bit in this release. Please get in touch with us in case you face any troubles when porting your plugins.
During the beta testing round snapshots of the code from Subversion, templates and plugins that have already been ported will still be generated daily. If you notice a bug in the beta, please make sure you can also reproduce it in the most recent snapshot to make our lives easier!
