ImpressCMS 184.108.40.206 (fix 1 for ImpressCMS 1.3.6) fixes several problems with the newly introduced PDO database system, along with security enhancements.
ImpressCMS development is hosted on Assembla, and there have been some changes in the way bugs and change requests are reported. A small reminder where to go in case of problems or requests.
The ImpressCMS 1.3.6 final release is now available to download. This release, the latest in the ImpressCMS 1.3 branch, provides support for PHP 5.5 and PDO, integrates previously released patches, and added protection for 3 vulnerabilities.
2014 has started! The ImpressCMS team wishes everyone a good start of the new year, and we look forward to a new year in which we will support you with help and advice in your ImpressCMS projects.
As you might have guessed, there are many things on our list of things we want to achieve during the upcoming year, but we'll focus our attention first on reviewing the structure and design of the website and on releasing more patches for ImpressCMS 1.3.5.... read more
The first in a series of patches to ImpressCMS is now ready to download and apply. This patch will update Smarty to version 2.6.28 and remove the email protection hack from the Smarty files and establishes it as a preload instead.
The changes from Smarty were to make it compliant with PHP 5.5 and to reapply a fix that had not been carried forward from a previous version.
Patches are designed to bring you features and fixes much quicker - and be simple to apply to your sites.
We have installed Cloudflare protection on the server, which means you can encounter an intermediate page every so often when you visit the ImpressCMS websites. There is no reason to be alarmed, it is meant to work that way for the near future.
Jetbrains just released a new major version of PHPStorm, their PHP-oriented development environment. Some of the core team have been using PHPStorm for a while now, and this is an IDE that is loaded with time-saving features and goodies. The fact that it runs on Windows, MacOS and Linux is a big plus!

A rather unfortunate error has been discovered in how Google Translate is translating "ImpressCMS" to other languages. We all know that Google Translate and all other machine translation is not 100% accurate, but it is usually quite good and recognizing names and brands. It is not the case with XOOPS and ImpressCMS.
An email has been sent the XOOPS project administrator requesting their participation in resolving this error, and they have offered their full support in this matter, including a letter of support to Google. They agree with us this is not helping ImpressCMS nor XOOPS. We have also initiated a request with Google to investigate the source of the error and to provide us with steps to resolve globally.
The developers have taken some time to go through the 1.3.x branch to apply some fixes to our primary version and are now releasing ImpressCMS 1.3.5 RC2. RC2, because RC1 was never released. The primary focus of this release is an update to the Smarty library, for security purposes, updates to several external libraries (jQuery, jQuery UI, Colorbox, HTML Purifier, TinyMCE and TCPDF), and updates to core modules. Since this is a release candidate, you are urged to test this as widely as possible in your environment and report any issues before the final stable release is published.
Notification about a potential security issue in the Content Module, delivered with ImpressCMS 1.3.4, circulate on the internet. The issuer already got in touch with us in February. However, the ImpressCMS team and more in particular the security expert, could not reproduce the issue.

New theme ported to ImpressCMS. Useful for professional or corporate sites.
We will be locking the main branches for ImpressCMS 1.3 (in SVN) and ImpressCMS 2.0 (in Git) again. From now on, no more development will be directly accepted in the main branch, you'll need to use a task branch to develop your change, and use a merge request to get it included in the core.
<p>Simple and elegant; great for personal or group sites. Specially worked in menu, tabs and slider design.</p> link
