glFusion v1.4.0 Available Now!

The team at glFusion.org is proud to announce that glFusion v1.4.0 is now available for download. This release continues our commitment to providing a secure and robust content management system. glFusion v1.4.0 includes several enhancements, bug fixes, and stability updates.


With glFusion v1.4.0, we are making a shift to HTML input as the standard input type. For comments, contacting users, mailing stories, HTML is now the default. You can select text mode input, but you no longer have the ability to toggle between input methods at the time you are entering text. To better support this change, we have replaced the old FCKeditor with a more modern WYSIWYG editor, CKEditor. We also offer TinyMCE as a plugin if you prefer that WYSIWYG editor. This has also driven significant updates to how HTML input is filtered. We've fixed a security issue in the filtering and also expanded the ability for you to define what HTML elements you will allow.

The Media Gallery SWFUpload feature has always been problematic. It worked, but not always very well. SWFUpload has been removed and replaced with an HTML 5 drag and drop uploader.


Menu Builder has seen some more updates. The code has been completely rewritten to be much more efficient. HTML used to build the menus is now template driven, which gives you unlimited flexibility in creating menus.


Please review the Upgrade Documentation for detailed instructions on upgrading your existing site.


You should also review the What's New Page and the Template Changes Page for details on changes you will need to make when upgrading.

I love making web sites and glFusion is the best tool out there to do this. I am hopeful that I can make many other web sites for other people.
