0.2 Release of Plumi Video Sharing Platform
We're pleased to announce a series of major updates to Plumi, the free software video sharing content management system. These updates include major enhancements to site speed and reduced server load, a new design and features such as tagging and call outs.
More specifically the improvements include....
We've added a new content type: "Call Outs" to help people looking for content for a DVD compilation, screenings, film festival or crew for a production.
The addition of qPloneComments adds email notification if someone comments on a video or responds to a comment and allows fine grained administration of commenting. A comments portlet is also added to the front page.
We've improved the vodcasting performance using a catalogue based RSS2 feed view implementation, meaning RSS2 feeds load much faster.
Tagging is now based on the Vaporisation product resulting in much faster page loads and navigation of content.
PERFORMANCE AND TEMPLATE ENHANCEMENTS
- templates are refactored into a new 'Five' style view implementation that are Plone 3 ready resulting in faster page loads
- video listings no longer wake the objects from the zope database (ZODB) improving catalogue searching and speed
- Plumi 0.2 runs now on Plone 2.5.5 (Plone 3 coming soon)
- a new design cleaner design - thanks Trollfot!
