     It is with great pleasure that the Bricolage development team 
announces
     the release of Bricolage 1.8.0. The culmination of over 15 months in
     development, with contributions from over 20 independent developers,
     and new features sponsored by numerous organizations world-wide,
     version 1.8.0 represents a significant new pinnacle for the 
much-lauded
     open-source content management and publishing system. This release
     offers more new features, improvements, and performance gains than 
any
     previous release. There are so many, in fact (over 120), that they
     can't effectively be included in this email. Here are some of the
     highlights:

       * Support for managing multiple sites from a single Bricolage
       installation. Each site has its own categories, templates, 
document
       types, and workflows, and collaboration across sites is supported 
by
       document aliasing and shared workflow desks.

       * Significant performance boosts to search queries and URI 
uniqueness
       validation.

       * Email document distribution, which can be used to email the 
files
       generated by an output channel to one or more email addresses.

       * A greatly simplified and flexible templating and element API.

       * Template sandboxes to enable template development without
       interfering with production templates.

       * Support for Template Toolkit templates
       (http://www.template-toolkit.org).

       * New "Publish" and "Recall" permissions, for improved workflow
       management.

       * Per-user preferences.

       * Document formatting at publish time, rather than publish 
scheduling
       time.

       * New German and Mandarin localizations.

       * Image thumbnails and icons for all media documents.

       * Support for HTMLArea WYSIWYG editing with HTMLArea. See
       http://www.interactivetools.com/products/htmlarea/.
