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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

It's true, the new beta version of Open Power Template is available to download. It was planned to be released a week ago, but because of problems with SVN I didn't manage to do that (again, but hopefully for the last time). This is mostly a bugfix release, but there are some small improvements and changes in the component API, which was not documented then. The changes are not too big and were quite necessary to be introduced.

Well, after many adventures with SVN and recently discovered problems with XML prologs and DTD I finally managed to release the first beta version of Open Power Template. From now, we are going to focus on removing as many bugs and problems as possible and we need here your help. Furthermore, we also need to complete the English manual, which is quite big now, but still does not explain some issues.

Somewhere in the middle of November 2007, I wrote the first (working!) lines of the Open Power Template 2.0.0 source code. After a year of hard work, I've already uploaded a revision that finally gives you all the invented features implemented. For that time, OPTv2 grew and changed its shape. The first development releases resembled OPT 1.1.x when it comes to API and some features. They were just ported to the new XML compiler. Nowadays, OPT is a totally different library. It is much more modularized and designed to make the integration with frameworks easier. There is still a lot to do. The incoming release will be the last one with the "-dev" prefix, and in the next few weeks, the beta versions will appear, then Release Candidates and at last, the first stable release.

At last, the translation of the manual into English is complete and the source code has been already released as the first version of TypeFriendly, the documentation generator. In is available in Files on the main site. The user manual is provided in the source form and it works also as an example, so please do not worry that something is missing. All the necessary information to build the HTML version can be found in
/info/README.txt file. All you need is to type one command in the system console. The on-line documentation will be available soon, as we are preparing new website. To get more information about TypeFriendly, take a look at the previous note.
