Release notes - eZ Publish 5 Comunity Project 2012.9


This is the first eZ Publish 5 release of Community Project!

It comprises an eZ Publish 4.x build, under app/ezpublish_legacy, that you can extract and use as a stand-alone version. We highly recommend, however, to get acquainted with the brand new eZ Publish 5 stack :). If you are not sure what this means, have a look at the announcement from The Community Project Board.

Also please note that the 5.0/2012.10 translation campaign is ongoing currently, for one more week only: help the community conquer the world by translating eZ Publish in your language!


Installation of eZ Publish 5

Please refer to the installation instructions, that you can find here:

Make sure you start by installing the 4.x version embedded in the tarball. Note that we highly recommend to use a Virtual Host setup for eZ Publish, of which you can find an example at the link above.
