Sourcefabric announced the release of Newscoop 3.5.2 on March 15th 2011. Formerly known as Campsite, Newscoop takes Sourcefabric’s decade-long experience of making tools for news organisations and builds an open content management system for professional journalists. Download Newscoop 3.5.2 now! Newscoop 3.5.2 addresses security and stability issues with over 60 bug fixes, including improvements to the dashboard (your customisable workspace just got faster), the article edit screen (cleaner, stabler WYSIWYG editing, previewing and image handling) and the blogs, interviews and polls plugins (plus a new plugin enabling reCAPTCHA in comments). There are a few changes behind the scenes too which deal with tightening security so upgrade is strongly recommended. Newscoop comes packaged with templates too, including The Journalist, a brand-new template that builds on a classic Wordpress design and is aimed at journalists who have outgrown their blog. Clean and simple, it’s the perfect antidote to overworked commercial blogging platforms. 3.5.2 (March 15, 2011) New Features ------------ * [CS-2868] New plugin providing reCAPTCHA service
