Satchmo 0.9-trunk Now Available

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2009

satchmo-frontDevelopment Version

We are proud to announce that we now support and can install the latest trunk-version (0.9) of Satchmo, installed from Mercurial (aka “hg” – get it?!).

Since it’s installed directly from the VCS, and symlinked into the python path, this allows for updates to the source tree anytime – in other words, instant upgrades (and downgrade, if a problem is encountered!) anytime (depending on your VCS).

Django, and other plugins, are installed this same way, as always – we have done it this way since 2007.

Here is a quick intro on how it’s done – just indicate you want us to install Satchmo in the “notes” field when you place your order, and we’ll get it done for you.


WordPress 2.8.4 now available

Monday, September 7th, 2009


All our WordPress instances have been upgraded to the latest, current, secure version, 2.8.4. In addition, all new WordPress instances purchased and deployed from now on will be 2.8.4 or greater.

Here is the announcement from Matt:

WordPress 2.8.4: Security Release

We did this immediately upon leaning of the security vulnerability.

To our knowledge, none of our existing customers have been affected.

If you have not yet  logged in to your Admin interface since the upgrade, you may get a “Database upgrade” button, just press it and it should complete successfully in a few seconds.

Let us know if you have any questions or issues.
