Fellow PostgreSQLers,

After years of incubation, refinement and testing, the Bricolage
development team is thrilled to announce the release of Bricolage 2. The
new Bricolage boasts a sleeker interface, a wealth of new features for
content authors and administrators, and a wider range of platform options.

This is the first major-version update since Bricolage 1.0 was released in
2001. It’s also the fastest, smartest, best-looking Bricolage yet.
Download it today!

New features
------------

The interface: Bricolage 2 boasts a totally-revamped interface (based on
the
[Prototype]" and [script.aculo.us] JavaScript frameworks). The
amazingly-flexible Bricolage approach to document editing is now also
amazingly easy to work with.  You can add fields (and groups of fields) to
documents without leaving your current screen. You can re-order elements by
dragging them. Working with categories and keywords is easier too, with
search-as-you-type autocompletion. 

The back end: Bricolage 2 makes document definitions even more flexible, so
administrators can specify the minimum and maximum number of occurrences
for any field or subelement. Other highlights include native support for
thumbnail images, streamlined job and event tracking, and high-speed SFTP
publishing.

The platform: The new Bricolage runs on both Apache 2 and Apache 1.3, and
can use either [PostgreSQL] (8.1+) or [MySQL] (5.0.3+) as its repository.

There are many, many more changes, features and improvements in Bricolage
2. For a complete list, see the [changelog]. For the complete history of
ongoing changes in Bricolage, see [Bric::Changes]. Better yet, [download]
