We can only take it as an annoying type of flattery, but the amount of spam that this forum is getting has passed our tolerance. We don't want to go as far as moderating messages, so for now we've only made recaptcha a registration requirement. This is of course no guarantee that the spam will stop, so we'll cross our fingers and apologize in advance for the nuisance, should it continue.
The official production release of Mango M2M2 is now available. Download version 1.0.1 of the core now. Make sure you get the associated module versions as well. Look for module versions marked as "1.x - #.#.#".
Ok, server trouble should all be fixed now. To boot, the Mango site and these forums should also be a bit quicker. (Thanks to a better data center.) The only thing remaining is the "example" view, which is probably still out.
To all real life Mango users. Our apologies for the spam that is occasionally sent via these forums. We are currently considering replacing this forum software in our long overdue but hopefully soon full site redesign. In the meantime we are mopping up spam messages as quickly as we can. Please bear with us.
Do you find Mango useful? Do you want it to get better? Do you want to help?
The easiest way you can help out Mango is to let others know what you think! Please link to Mango from your web site. (Use logos and such if you like too, and link to http://mango.serotoninsoftware.com.) Or, write a short description of how you use Mango to put on our home page.
The more people there are who use Mango, the more it will be developed and improved.
Serotonin makes more revenue on requests for enhancements than on licenses. The thinking is that if more people will use it when it is free, then consulting revenues will increase accordingly. At least that's the running theory. If true, you can be sure that the product will continue being developed and supported.
The structure of the Mango site has been changed to include a "Coming soon" section. This will list all of the significant changes that will be included in the upcoming new version of the product. It will be updated only with changes that are complete - no vapourware.
The page can be updated at any time, so check back often. Also, if your personal wishlist isn't there, let us know!
