S@S V3 Features!   10-10-2007
Dear Site@School users,
The second draft of the Site@School requirements is ready. We are proud of some stunning features that were impossible in Site@School version 2.
You can study them at: http://siteatschool.org/?section=13&page=114.
For commensts, suggestions, requests, etcetera, please visit our S@S4US Forum.
 
Call for Feature Requests   19-06-2007
We are now in the midst of the data definition for the new release of Site@School. In this discussion we are trying to take a look in the future of Site@School and esteblish a roadmap.
This is the ideal time to consult all users witht the  question: "What features would you want for _your_ school in a complete, mature primary school CMS?"

You can visit our  S@S4US Forum; and submit your feature request(s).
 
Low hanging fruit !   08-05-2007
Dear Site@School users,

The design of the new version is in progress. Peter is now working on
the data definition; a crucial stage in the creation of the new Site@School.
Now that we can make a fresh start,some basic problems can be solved
and a few interesting features appear to be low hanging fruit, i.e. easy to create
in the new version. Here we go and fasten your seatbelts!

- Multiple Intranets. This has been a wish by many users. It was too
complicated in the old version where we had 1 Intranet. This means that not
only teachers can have their own intranet, but also the board, the xyz
committee, etcetera.

- Multiple sites might also be possible, i.e. each group  *(pupils,
teachers, parents, committees, etc.) can have their own website.

- It can be possible to move pages around whereever you want them. Pages
can be moved from one Intranet to the other, from the public site to one of
the Intranets, from one site to the other, or vice versa.

_ More levels. Basically the old S@S was a CMS with 'sections' and
'pages'. With the 'category' template you could get one more level, but
that's all and it was a solution that was born out of emergency.
In the new version we will try to make levels more fexible, without
losing KISS.

We are also discussing ways to make unused modules unaccessible, thus
minimising the number of points for attackers.

And, last but not least, one index.php as entry point for all that stuff.
This also reduces risks.

In our opinion, these features are worth waiting for.

Kind regards,
The Site@School Team

First Security Audit   08-04-2007
Dear Site@School users,
On the 5th of April 2007 the team had a meeting with a security expert.
Reasons:
Gradually ideas about the organization and the architecture of the new code for a new version of
Site@School  begin to take shape. The team wanted a second opinion on the matter
and consulted a security expert to discuss ideas.

After a 2 hour exchange of opinions it became clear that our main developer  Peter
and the security expert both agreed on the basics of the new code.
This was a great assurance for the team.

We hope to have made clear to all Site@School users that we are taking care
of the security in the new version of Site@School.

With kind regards,
The Site@School Development Team
