My-Bic version 0.6 Released
Mar 31, 2006 @ 20:08:08

Jim Plush has released the latest version of his My-Bic Ajax/PHP framework with a few cool enhancements - version 0.6 according to this new post.

The two major features added are JSON client side encoding and network down handling. Client side JSON encoding will allow you to send more complex structures to your PHP script and they can get converted to normal PHP objects. The other major feature is handling network down issues.

For example if your client script cannot get a response back from the server My-Bic will now allow you to define your own network down function or you can use the default method which creates a div on the screen alerting the user of network issues. If there are 3 requests that fail in a row My-Bic disables itself until the page is reloaded. All of those settings are configurable so you can change or override them.

The addition of these two features is definitely a plus for the framework - they provide two more advanced features that any developer can use thanks to the simplicity of the My-Bic framework. Some of the other features of the framework include easy forms, a built-in submission queue, and a bit to help you in debugging your scripts.

Seagull Project Release Candidate 1 for Version 0.6
Mar 15, 2006 @ 07:17:51

AJ Tarachanowicz has written in about the latest updates that have been made over at the Seagull project - a move up to the first Release Candidate for version 0.6 of the framework.

After a 2 week sprint to the finish line, I'm pleased to announce the first release candidate for the 0.6 series of Seagull framework project is now available for download . There's been a lot of improvements implemented under the hood, but the most noticeable change is the completely redesigned admin user interface by Julien Casanova. Curious to try before you 'buy', checkout the demo at http://demo.seagullproject.org (config edits disabled). Although we have maintained our 1 release per month policy for most of the project's life, the last stable release was back in November 2005, and that was from the 0.4 series which started way back in the beginning of 2005.

Other improvements that he's notes you'll find in this release are:

  • workflow and usability vastly improved with the sleek new admin GUI
  • the Translation2 package is now fully integrated
  • internationalised GUI strings
  • navigation management vastly improved
  • subtrees of navigation for each role of user in the system
  • navigation types extended to include external links
  • full URI aliasing support with javascript generation of search engine friendly URIs
  • and much, much more...

If you haven't tried Seagull yet, now is a good time to check it out. The 0.6 series will be supported and improved throughout the coming months after which we're aiming for the 1.0 release. As the project's goals for feature completeness are now almost fully realised, there will be 1 final development cycle before we release 1.0 which we anticipate will happen in mid 2006. If you want to get in touch with the development team you can find us on #seagull, and for all bugs/feature requests please us.
