Midgard 2: more than just PHP, more than just CMS

As Midgard 2 is already in alpha stage, I though it would be good to update the architecture diagram to showcase the new Midgard structure.

Midgard 2: Finally legacy-free

While watching Everaldo work on the upcoming Midgard C# bindings, I decided to try running Midgard 2 with lighttpd. After quite a lot of struggling to get latest SVN checkout to compile on my mac, and some playing with lighty rewrite rules, I was greeted with a working MidCOM 3 page: So, after such a long time, Midgard 2 is...
