Thanks for your interest in the Berylium project! The codebase is currently being rewritten and optimized, a project generally known as Berylium2. This document outlines some of the new features being developed for the next release.
New For Be2!
- Integration with existing website.Easily mix dynamic content with static content! Be2 uses Apache's awesome mod_rewrite engine to transparently handle requests for files that "don't exist".
- Publish via FTP.A full FTP-based publishing engine is built-in, a must for high-volume sites. This also means you can create objects on a development server and then push them to a production server via FTP.
- XHTML-compliant rendering.All Berylium contexts (smart templates) and parsers are being rewritten for full compliance with XHTML 1.0 (Transitional). Customizing your Berylium site is now as easy as changing the stylesheet-- see the CSS Zen Garden as an example of the power of this approach.
- Backwards data compatibility.Change the code, keep the data. It's one of the principles to which Be2 development must adhere.
- New file-handling support (just wait!)
- Better, faster, stronger. More fun.
