Piwigo 11beta5

Goodbye version 2.11, welcome version 11! Back in 2008 we decided to rename PhpWebGallery into Piwigo and we jumped version from 1.7 to 2.0. It means we've been on version 2 for 12 years. Much longer than many other projects. A version 2.10 or 2.11 does not reflect the huge work we've put into the redesign of Piwigo user interface, even if the technical backend did not change much. We want to make obvious we're bringing a lot of improvements with these versions. Maybe version 2.10 should have been a version 3, as some of the community members suggested. So it's time to review our versionning system. Let's jump from version 2.10 to 11.0!

For now, here is Piwigo 11.0.0beta5 (following 2.11.0beta4, do you follow?)

A) Let's start with changes including screenshots

https://piwigo.org/screenshots/piwigo-11-update-check-requirements.png
Before future updates, Piwigo 11+ will check the required PHP version. We want to avoid the situation where you have started updating Piwigo and realize that you're stuck because your PHP is too old. We also want to be able to seriously increase PHP version in the near future.

https://piwigo.org/screenshots/piwigo-11-related-albums.gif
Piwigo 11 is able to show "related albums" and combine albums. Yes, it looks a lot like "related tags". The big difference is that albums can be organized as a hierarchy, while tags are flat.

https://piwigo.org/screenshots/piwigo-11-users-select-filtered.png
The user manager gets a slight improvement in Piwigo 11: you can select only the current page or the whole set of users. Now the "select whole set" takes the filter into account. This way you can easily apply the same action to all users of a given group.

https://piwigo.org/screenshots/piwigo-11-custom-alerts.png
Browser alerts are replaced by custom alerts. More explicit labels, to better understand what you're doing.

B) ... and review the ones without screenshots

* only installation language is activated by default, instead of the 70+ languages available
* new trigger at the end of file upload, opening new possibilities for plugins
* [quick search] include sub-albums photos in search results. A search for "bear" will show photos in albums "wild bears / grizzly" and "wild bears / giant panda". This feature needs to be explicitely activated with local configuration $conf['quick_search_include_sub_albums'] = true;

C) Start to beta test

Download Piwigo 11.0.0beta5

Please, open a new topic in the beta testing forum for each problem you may encounter.

Happy beta-testing :-)

Re: Piwigo 11beta5

That kind of sucked the excitement out prospective version 3.0
But I agree that Piwigo deserves a bigger number :)

I like having more triggers. That's always good.

Thanks for continued hard work. I'm really happy to be using Piwigo.
