With the dust slowly settling around the 1.0.4 I thought it would be time to outline where we will be taking Fabrik over the next couple of months.

First of all we will be continuing to fix bugs and add small feature requests to 1.0.4. We feel that 1.0.4 is pretty darn stable, and that it is an ideal solution for people running Joomla 1.0.x sites. So we envisage releasing a 1.0.5, most likely within a shorter time frame that the jump between 1.0.3 and 1.0.4.

We're really excited to announce the release of Fabrik 1.0.4, this is the cumulation of eight months of epic bug crushing and daring feature additions and updates. We really hope you enjoy using this latest version of Fabrik.

Firstly I would like to thank the entire community for reporting bug issues, and being patient with us whilst we found solutions for you. Also I'd personally like to that all the positive feedback and encouragement that we have received since the beginning of Fabrik in January, this is the manna that we live off!

I would like to officially welcome on board Hugh Messenger to the Fabrik development team.

As many of you might be aware Hugh has been tirelessly helping out on the forum over the last couple of months, proposing bug fixes, suggesting new features, and generally providing a good vibe! So its great news for everyone that he has accepted our offer to join the team.

IMPORTANT NOTE - the Fabrik SVN repository has moved from JoomlaCode.org to Unfuddle.com, as of Rev 372, 11/6/2007. If you already have a checked-out version from JoomlaCode, you will need to delete it and check-out a new copy from Unfuddle. Please find the new URL and username/password below.

PLEASE read all of this document before using SVN.

The first step is to install an SVN client. For Windows users we recommend Tortoise SVN. Just download the latest version and run the installer. The following instructions assume you are using Tortoise, but the same general instructions apply to any SVN client.

I'm excited to announce that as part of our commitment to producing bug free code I have started to create a series of automatic test suites. for 1.0.4

We are using the excellent SimpleTest suite to create and run our tests.

We've just released an alpha version of a Fabrik search mambot.

The search mambot enables Joomla's default search to access any database table that is associated to a Fabrik table. Any matching row is returned as long as the user has sufficient writes to view the table and that given record.
