Textpattern 4.0.5 released

Published: 1 July 2007 | 1 comment

Just in case you didn’t know before, this blog is powered by Textpattern (TXP), a free, flexible, elegant, easy-to-use content management system for all kinds of websites. When I decided to move away from Blogger.com and have get my own web server, I chose Wordpress initially. That only lasted for a week or two before I was persuaded to give TXP a try. Since then I never looked back.

Today the TXP developers just released version 4.0.5 and with it comes a few changes and bug fixes. While it might not have been as ground breaking release as Expression Engine (which is also very good by the way) had recently, it is definitely helping to set the groundwork for the next big release which I’m very much looking forward to.

I just finished updating this blog to the latest version and everything seems to have gone without a hitch. While I didn’t/don’t expect any problems (since I had downloaded a beta version of it last week and that seemed fine), if you do happen to notice anything odd, please let me know via the contact form.

For more information about what’s new in 4.0.5, head on over to the TXP website for all the release details.

In other TXP News, the first TXP book has been published. Textpattern Solutions takes you through the ins and outs of this wonderful CMS. I’m currently reading it and loving it so far and do plan on posting a review here as soon as I’m done. If you currently use TXP or are thinking of using it, I highly recommend you pick this book up.

Have a nice day and blessings on you all.

I started blogging much like you did Yannick with Blogger. I then switched to Wordpress. However, I haven’t yet made the move to Textpattern. I have played around with TXP a little bit and was quite impressed. From what I can tell it is a more robust CMS than Wordpress, but has a tiny bit of a steeper learning curve. Maybe one day I’ll have the time to learn Textpattern better.

It is good to hear that the developers of TXP are still moving forward.

BTW, I look forward to hearing your review of Textpattern Solutions. I’m sure its a great book since Nathan Smith was involved in the project.
