Happenings this week
Midgard gets geotagging. Midgard’s geo capabilities have now been amended by supporting the Flickr-style machine tags. This enables people submitting content to Midgard via email or for example Flickr integration to position and tag their content easily. The geotags will also show up in GeoRSS output.
Midgard configuration with PHP. Piotr Pokora has added PHP bindings to managing Midgard’s unified configuration. The bindings will be the basis for the new Midgard installer and enable easy creation of Midgard databases with multiple providers like MySQL, Postgres and SQLite
Exceptions in Midgard. Midgard’s development version has finally deprecated PHP4 support, enabling us to utilize features like exceptions. Next it will be interesting to start using PHP 5.2 datetimes everywhere instead of the current mixture of UNIX timestamps and datetime text fields
Midgard CMS is an Open Source Content Management System built on top of the Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP (LAMP) platform. It provides a reliable, powerful and internationalized set of tools for building web sites and networked applications.
Midgard utilizes PHP as the web scripting language and provides integration interfaces on Java and C layers. Midgard’s unique architecture enables it to provide services like single sign-on and replication. With these capabilities and the integrated full-text search system, Midgard is an excellent match for information-rich web sites and intranets.
