Campsite, the open content management system for professional journalists, is now called Newscoop. Newscoop takes Sourcefabric's decade-long experience of making tools for journalists (not to mention the many years before that of actually working in the industry), and builds an open source, free and multilingual enterprise publishing system for the 21st century newsroom. Our journalist-centred multi-author management and issue-based approach is no secret but Newscoop builds on this even further with some of the most powerful geolocation tools ever seen in an CMS, plus a powerful templating engine capable of producing anything from HTML 5 to mobile. Journalism is back and only a click away. Newscoop 3.5 RC2 is available for testing now: http://newscoop.sourcefabric.org
Release Notes: This release adds a new REST API, a new responsive theme, a Newscoop theme cookbook for Web designers, and a focus on the Arabic-speaking world with two groundbreaking news sites, a backend localization, and a user manual translated into Arabic.
Release Notes: This release has been updated to include frontend search capabilities powered by Solr, an Open Source search platform used by Netflix, Instagram, SourceForge, NASA, WhiteHouse.gov, and Apple. Solr’s major features include powerful fulltext searches, hit highlighting, faceted searches, dynamic clustering, database integration, and rich document (e.g., Word, PDF) handling.
Release Notes: This release offers an improvement to the performance of comment management with a “show more comments” button that allows journalists to browse paginated comments. Alongside this new feature, there were a number of bugfixes related to the upgrade from the previous version, plus improvement of library handling with the use of Composer (a dependency manager for PHP).
Release Notes: This release fixes a vulnerability which exploited the Admin interface’s password restoration. This patch permanently fixes that issue, and allows full use of the password restore functionality. Upgrading is highly recommended for all users. In addition, there are improvements to the media archive which offer far greater stability to news organisations with large collections of images, and articles, topics, themes, and performance have all seen minor fixes and improvements.
Release Notes: This is a bugfix release which, amongst other things, ensures Newscoop now works correctly with PHP 5.4 and improves the usability of the new comments and related article features. The hidden filter in comments management now only displays hidden comments and comments no longer approved by default, even though moderation is enabled. Related articles are now copied from the original article with the action "duplicate", and related articles for a translated article no longer have the title "null". Numerous other bugfixes improve stability and the UI.
