Silva 2.1 alpha, plus Firefox 3 Compatibility Releases

21 june 2008 – Infrae announces an alpha release of Silva 2.1, plus
three releases for Silva versions that fix problems with the Firefox 3
web browser. There are Silva 2.0.8, 1.6.3, and 1.5.12 versions available.

New features of the Silva 2.1 alpha will be announced on the
silva-general mailing list: https://lists.infrae.com/mailman/listinfo/silva-general

In the 2.x series the key improvements are:

* Added support for ‘elaborate’ Code Sources, which are editable in a
   pop-up window instead of a toolbox.
* When SMTP errors occur while sending notifications, we log them, but
   no longer abort the process.
* When PDF/Word file conversion for indexing results in errors, the
   converted text is indexed anyway.

Various other minor issues have been fixed. For details see the history
file included with each version.
