With all the noise going to Lily these days, lest not forget our continuing development of Daisy and Kauri, the former an inspiration for the content model behind Lily, the latter providing the runtime environment.
Daisy and Kauri both saw a release candidate in the past few weeks, to which you're cordially invited to download, install and play around. There's lots of new stuff in both releases.
Two highlights in Daisy 2.4 M1: the point-in-time publish and search, which is a time machine feature (non-DeLorean, I'm afraid) allowing you to view and search (!) a site as if it was published on a given point in time. If you have a fancy legal publishing requirement, this is a killer feature which you will find nowhere.
On a technical level, we've (finally) switched the build tool of Daisy from Maven 1 to Maven 2, and also provide some nice plug-ins to manage running Daisy instances.
Deep work on the forms module, which should finally be really usable by now,
a centralized configuration mechanism, and an upgrade to Restlet 2. That, and
loads of work on the documentation as well.
This must have been the longest inter-release spell we experienced, part of which is to be blamed on customer project work (for which we're grateful), and part of indeed is caused by lots of work on Lily as well. That said, we believe there's more than enough new goodies to be found in Daisy 2.4 and Kauri 0.4 to compensate for this.
So hit your surf boards and give them a spin!
