The Bricolage team is pleased to announce the release of Bricolage-Devel
1.5.1, a beta release for what will soon become Bricolage 1.6.0. In
addition to all of the new features of the 1.5.0 release, this version 
the open-source content management system fixes many bugs and adds many
new features and significant performance enhancements. The most
significant changes include:

     * A new, complete internationalization and localization
       implementation. All messages, text buttons, JavaScript messages, 
       help files may be localized. Some Portuguese and Italian
       localization has already been done. Translators needed going
       forward! Thanks to Claudio Valente.

     * New "Super Bulk Edit" interface to allow story editors to edit
       multiple fields in a single textarea field using simple tags. 
       to Macworld Magazine for sponsoring this development.

     * A further overhaul of groups and permissions. These changes make 
       permission checking and therefore the UI much more
       responsive. Thanks to Portugal Telecom for sponsoring this

     * The addition of a WebDAV distribution mover. Thanks to Joao Pedro

     * Extensive refactoring of most of the business classes, including
       stories, media, and templates, greatly enhancing the speed at 
       objects are retrieved from the database. Thanks Portugal Telecom 
       to Mark Jaroski.

     * Added a per-Apache request object cache. The prevents an object 
       being looked up in the database multiple times in a single
       request. Such was often the case during publishes, which are 
       up by this change by up to 33%. Thanks to Portugal Telecom for
       sponsoring this development.

     * Added a preview link to all subelement profiles within a story,
       thanks to Scott Lanning.

     * Switched exceptions from home-grown to using Exception::Class,
       thanks to Scott Lanning.

     * Added category group association -- including the ability to 
       membership assignments into subcategories -- to the category 
       Thanks to Joao Pedro Goncalves.

     * The "Content" section of story, media, and subelement profiles now
       attempts to display a bit of text from the first text field in 
       listed subelement so that it's easier to see at a glance which
       subelement is which. Thanks to Joao Pedro Goncalves.

     * Subelement can now nest. That is, they can contain themselves. Not
       in a story, of course, but in the document model (element

     * Over twenty bug fixes and a much more extensive test suite.

For a complete list of the changes, see the changes file at Although
this release gives every appearance of being as stable as any previous
release of Bricolage, it does contain a fair bit of new code that needs 
be put through the ringer. It is, however, feature complete for 1.6.0,
which we expect to release in April.
