Next release

I thought I would let you know some things that will be in the next release.

I've decided that the current manage notes page is a horrible interface choice and will be switching to a more hotmail like look. ie: more condensed with links to full blown editing, checkboxes to select messages that should be deleted, etc.

Email support so that administrators can be notified when a notes is added. Optionally a cronjob script that can be run once every X days to email the number of queued messages (probably a more convenient way).... read more

French Translation

Dat-Son Nguyen has contributed a French translation. You can download it here:

As with the italian translation you just need to edit the $g_language variable in config_inc.php to be "french".

Italian Translation

I can see that my work on my other project (Mantis) seems to have followed me around. Luca Pecatore has contributed an Italian translation of phpWebNotes. You can download it here:

After you download it just open up config_inc.php and find the value "english" and change it to "italian". Many thanks to Luca!

phpWebNotes 0.9.0 released

The initial release is available. However, it should only be checked out by those who are able to tweak and fiddle with php and mysql proficiently. It is very rough and I consider it alpha quality. A more polished release will follow when available.

Alpha release soon

I will be releasing a alpha release soon. This is more to get the first step of actually releasing something out of the way. It is currently functional but far from ready to be used in a real life environment.

The package should be released this weekend.
