This version is a nearly complete code rewrite of the old YaWPS system, which makes it more secure, faster and smaller. That's why I hopped from 0.3 to 0.6 in the version history. I think YaWPS is ready for entering beta phase ;)
It now uses Perl techniques like taint checking, fully enabled internal warnings and strict pragma.
There are a lot of new freatures implemented like ban management, block administration, page content management, module support and RDF generation. You are now able to easily write your own YaWPS modules and integrate their features completely into YaWPS. I've already written a Gallery module, which is quite basic in its functionality, but it demonstrates well how to write a module for YaWPS. Planned modules are Chat, FAQ-section, Downloads and Userpages.
The theme layout management is now easier and more fexible (the style is fully CSS driven).
It is highly recommended that you upgrade your old YaWPS to 0.6!!!
