It has been a long while since I’ve covered Habari on this blog, and I am still interested in the developments of the blog platform. With the latest release, it doesn’t seem like they’ve put much “fanfare” into it, and here are some details from their dev blog.
We’re really happy to announce our 0.6 release, which brings in the Access Control List (ACL)-based permissions system we’ve been working so hard on, along with oh, about 1100 bug fixes and other improvements. See the release notes for details.
With the addition of the extensible ACL system, Habari is now ideal for creating a variety of websites. Whether a single blog or a corporate publishing hub, you have granular control over permissions for every author and visitor to the blog. You can decide who can modify what, and where. To show off the ACL system, we’ve included a new ‘private posts’ plugin that lets you limit the visibility of posts to a subset of registered users.
I think they need to work on their marketing text for releases, as the improvements are no small feat, and improve the software greatly. Check out Habari, if you are looking to try out a different blogging platform.
