Community Server 2007 Beta 1

17. February 2007 00:18

Well, the news is out as of yesterday that Community Server 2007 Beta 1 has been released for download.  Telligent continues to push forward with improving the Community Server platform. 

There are a large number of anticipated features with this release.  I am most interested in Chameleon, which is the code name for the new theme engine.  Supposedly, it will dramatically simplify the process of creating and customizing skins.  It will be possible to dynamically edit several aspects of the skin by directly interfacing with your website.  There will also be a feature for easily importing/exporting custom skins, including any custom images, making it simple to share with others.

Although I am anxious to see all of the changes for myself, I am not up for the potential issues of running the beta for this site.  When it is officially released later this year, I will be one of the first to download and install.  For now, CS 2.1 will just have to do.
