In the last few months, Invenzzia Group websites became a bit outdated, and the projects went into a more chaotic development flow. It was related to some private issues, but finally better days have come and I would like to announce the incoming Invenzzia Group reactivation and refreshment. Read more to see, what is going to change in the next month time.

Works on Open Power Template 2.1, the greatly extended successor of OPT 2.0 are almost finished. I know it was a long year, but finally we reach a point where we can plan our next steps and think, what to do next. The current package will be soon packed as OPT 2.1-BETA2, and the remaining functionality will appear as a part of the first Release Candidate.

I'm pleased to inform that after a year of work, Open Power Template 2.1 goes into a beta testing phase. As you might expect, the new branch is a revolutionary evolution. Although it was born in pain, the new development stage is a fact. In this post I'd like to describe briefly the changes and new stuff that can be found there. Meanwhile, if you look for stable releases, OPT 2.0.6 is also available to download. It fixes four bugs.

So far, our projects have been hosted with Subversion control system installed on our own servers. While it is quite convenient and we are not limited by resources, it causes some problems with authentication and simplifying access for users that wish to help us developing our projects. In the last days, we have been discussing on that and decided to switch to Git. In the near future, all the projects will migrate to Github which will become our official hosting platform. I hope it will make the collaboration much easier.

The incoming Open Power Template 2.1 will have a new, more powerful expression parser. Basically speaking, expressions are those pieces of language that evaluate something, producing a value, i.e. variables and operators. Both OPT 1.1 and 2.0 use a nice, manually-written parser that compiles them to a PHP code, validating their syntax and performing some extra transformations. While it works well, I think I reached the end of possible ways to extend it. It would be simply too complicated to implement new features to it, so I decided I must rewrite it into a formal grammar. Today, the main works on it are finished.

I have published a new tutorial for Open Power Template today. It shows how to use sections and data formats for OPT. I chose this topic, because I noticed that some users have problems with understanding them and decided that an extra tutorial would help them. Before the end of the year, I'll try to write one more text about working with XML in OPT. The article is available on Invenzzia website both in English and Polish language versions.

In this note, I would like to show some new features of the incoming Open Power Template 2.1. The new branch, which is currently under development, will bring many new tools and improvements to the template language syntax and the library API. Some of them are already implemented, but there is still a lot of work to do. It is hard to say when it is going to be released, but I'll do my best, so that you would not have to wait another year for it.

I have just created an account on SlideShare.net, a place where you can post your presentations and slideshows. I will use it to post various presentations and learning materials about Invenzzia projects, so that you could follow them easily. Currently, you can watch there a tour on Open Power Template (watch on SlideShare). So stay tune and follow us on SlideShare!

After releasing the first stable version of Open Power Template, we gained an opportunity to focus on other Invenzzia projects as well. One of the new enterprises is a form processing library which has been given a name Open Power Forms. In the last days, I managed to implement the basic functionality and run the first test files and I would like to introduce you in the new project. From this entry, you are going to get to know, what OPF actually is, what are its benefits and main goals and what has been implemented so far.

Finally, after a 1.5 years of the development process, we managed to release the first stable version of Open Power Template. The road was very long but I hope that it was worth it. In this short entry, I'd like to make a small introduction to the project history for you, as it is quite interesting and could give some clue, how this all began.
Wednesday, 08 July 2009
Welcome back after a short break. Although there were no summaries in the last month, Invenzzia projects are still active and maintained. We have released two new versions in June, and now we are reaching the moment of releasing... the first stable version of Open Power Template 2! Stay with us and read more about the progress and the current status of the projects.

Welcome to the fourth episode of Invenzzia Summaries. The issues discussed today:
- Incoming TypeFriendly 0.1.2 release
- Revised plans for 0.2 branch of TypeFriendly
- Open Power Classes
- Release plan for Open Power Template
Tuesday, 12 May 2009
Finally, the first Release Candidate of Open Power Template is available to download, after 4 months of testing and implementing the remaining features. The library seems to be completed and stable enough for both development and production environments. Of course, there is still a small possibility that a fatal bug will be found, but I do not think this will happen, as there are lots of unit tests present and the code has been checked with two real-world web applications.
Welcome to the third episode of the Invenzzia Summaries. Today we will make a small celebration of the 100th revision to the OPL repository, as well as take a closer look at the recently implemented features, such as PHAR support, caching interface and the improved autoloader.

Invenzzia Summaries are the way to inform about what's going on in Invenzzia and its open-source projects. In the second episode we will talk about incoming OPT 2.0-RC1, OPL port for Zend Framework and the incoming first bigger practical tutorial about OPT.
Friday, 10 April 2009
This is the first episode of the Invenzzia Summaries, a way to inform about various events and activities of Invenzzia Group and the development of the open-source projects. We will try to publish them regularly, but the exact period depends on the amount of issues worth concerning. In the first episode, we will talk about the last beta version of Open Power Template and the new projects that are going to use it.

A couple of minutes ago, we have finally run the new Invenzzia website with new layout, navigation and features, such as news/article commenting. We hope you'll enjoy it and we are waiting for your feedback and opinions. Please note that the links to the user manuals have been changed, as well as the download links. However, we keep the automated redirects.

I've recently uploaded the first revision of Open Power Libs port for Zend Framework to our SVN repositories and it is available there for public audience. The port is not completed yet, but the basic functionality is present and seems to work. I encourage everyone to test it and submit suggestions or noticed bugs. The package includes a test ZF application, and the source code is well-commented. I'll put some extra information on wiki soon, as well as set up the "real" user manual.

Hi everyone, in the last few days, we had a lot of work around Invenzzia and its projects. In this entry I would like to inform, what currently is going on. We will talk about OPT 2, TypeFriendly, our new website and the activity in open source project trackers.
Tuesday, 10 March 2009
One of the goals in the OPL project is not only to provide a set of great libraries, but also teach the popular PHP software, how to use them. Currently, lots of applications are designed with the help of frameworks which often provide their own solutions. It is obvious that the users do not want to deal with all the integration stuff, especially if the library is in fact a replacement for a whole part of the framework. This situation perfectly suits to Open Power Template that is rather a presentation layer framework than just a simple template engine. Currently, the programmers may already use OPT in Kohana Framework thanks to the efforts of Damian Nowak who prepared a nice port. And now, we would like the announcement of the Zend Framework port that will be released soon.
