PresbyterySite 0.1.0 released!

We are pleased to announce the release of PresbyterySite 0.1.0! PresbyterySite's code has demonstrated itself to be mature enough to be used by a continuing user base. This release deserves a new minor version number because it includes the following important new features:

  1. User data is now stored in Joomla user tables and in Community Builder, which is now required (we may make it optional in the future). This will enable further integration between PresbyterySite and Community Builder user profiles in the future. When you install PresbyterySite 0.1.0, the installer will migrate your user data from PresbyterySite's user tables into the Joomla / Community Builder tables (please backup your database first!!), and these new user accounts will be associated properly with the congregations and committees in PresbyterySite. No more duplicate user information! Now it will all be stored in one place. This is the good news.... read more
