So the moment you've all been waiting for is here! We put out a new zenphoto release today. For the impatient, grab it here
. For those who are interested, here's the list of all the new features:
- Drag and drop sorting of the Gallery and Albums (and there was more rejoicing!)
- Album and Image deletion from the admin section (be careful!)
- Comment notification (so now you know what people are saying about you)
- Improvements to the Admin section
- And many behind the scenes architectural improvements.
You can check the full changelog
: Although we have made substantial progress in this release, this is still a beta. Make sure that you take good backups of anything you can afford to lose when you upgrade. Just in case.. Upgrading
First, make sure you back up your DB tables. Next, upload the new files over the top of your existing installation. You will have to update your config.php file manually with the new [admin_email] field and the new pathing at the bottom. Did we say back up your DB tables? Finally, load http://hostname/zenphoto/zen/upgrade.php
(or whatever your path is) in your browser. Click on Go and watch the magic.Known Issues
You may have to delete your admin cookie and log back into your site after the upgrade. You may not. Let us know. Requests
As usual, please post all issues to the Support forums
. We also like to know when things go right and how pleased people are

We do listen to what everyone is saying. Really, we do. We try. So here are a few things that we know everyone would like: WP plugin(s), RSS feeds, easier installs, sub-albums, etc. We'll get there. For now, enjoy!
