LFC 1.0 (Man o' War) is now feature complete and we will focus on:

  • API clean-ups
  • User Interface improvements (to manage users, roles, permissions, workflows, etc.)
  • Documentation improvements
  • Test coverage


We are also working on LFC Blog a simple blog and LFC Compositor a page composition application.

Released 1.0 alpha 6

Today we released 1.0 alpha 6. The main changes - besides the usual tiny bug fixes here and there - are:

  • Improved manage translations: added automatically slug
  • Improved management filebrowser: show global files
  • Improved management: delete files/images on file system if an object is deleted
  • Improved management: optimized update images
  • Improved management: nicer mass uploads for files (same as images)
  • Improved search form: take correct slug according to current language for search results
  • Improved HTML: Display page titles within title tag
  • Gallery template: display image titles
  • Update german translations


We think we are almost feature complete and the API is near to stable. So hopefully this is one of the last alpha releases for the 1.0 branch (Man o' War).
