PMtool / News: Recent posts

1.2.3-beta released

We began cleaning up/refactoring the codebase. Fixed a few annoyances and added a new translation for Portuguese/Brazilian (thanks to Conesteel - Vitor <>).

See ChangeLog and CVS for more information.

Thanks to Chris for his great work on helping me with this!

New developer, Chris Wade

PMtool is finally getting some long-awaited bug fixes and updates. Chris and Robby are working on some of the bugs in the bug tracker and are keeping CVS updated. Please feel free to check out from CVS and test the changes that are being made. We are looking to lock down some of the last bugs and Robby will begin working on pmtool 2.0 with a template engine (most likely Smarty) and will support PostgreSQL, MySQL and any other databases that people want to help port PMtool to.
