We decided to skip 5.0.6 and work on toward stabilizing SiteFusion and implementing a lot of the features that we intended to implement further down the road. The first open-source releases contained a lot of freshly rewritten parts. This is the result of the decision to drop compatibility on some points between the proprietary version of SiteFusion and the open-source one. Because of this fork, we could implement some changes that were previously stalled. The result however is that the first open-source release was not as thoroughly tested as its predecessor. Now we've had enough time to test everything, and we smoothed the wrinkles. Downloads here. The changes include:... read more

We're also working on a better project website, which will contain this documentation and tutorials on various aspects of SiteFusion application programming.
Due to a major naming scheme switch prior to the first open-source release of SiteFusion, some files still contained old references to renamed constants. Release 5.0.3 fixes this, and a bug in XULChildWindow where the close event was not initialized.
After several years of development we are proud to present the open-source release of SiteFusion, a web application development client-server framework. Unlike most web application frameworks, SiteFusion does not work through a browser but instead uses a thin XUL client (the same technology Mozilla Firefox is based on). This means that SiteFusion applications are platform-independent, look and behave like native system applications, and are not restricted by browser security to access the local filesystem and execute programs.... read more
