Thank you. Version 3.0 was a huge step forward, and 3.1 consolidates it. There is a lot of power in there now - it's been a really good year for the project. There's a lot of stuff we talked about when I came to Belgium that is now a reality, and the new editor is such a massive upgrade.

Merry Christmas!

Thank you very very very much for the new version 3.1 of Xerte Online Toolkits.
I must admit I was a little skeptic about what advantages 3.0 would bring over 2.x so my expectations weren't that high when I installed 3.0 on my server. Oh man was I proven wrong. 3.0 turned out to be a great and fantastic version with an unexpected increase in productivity.
I would like to thank everyone involved with the development of XOT. You all did a fantastic job.

I would also like to wish everyone a merry Christmas and a happy new year. May 2016 bring everything everyone needs and even more.

Best regards,

   John Bijnens

The Xerte Project’s community of developers is proud to announce that version 3.1 of Xerte Online Toolkits is now available for download from the community site at http://www.xerte.org.uk.

Version 3.1 is an incremental update that addresses a number of small issues that surfaced following the release of v3.0 back in the summer: in particular thanks to Len Johnson for his work on improving the installer, and to John Horne at Plymouth for sending through a number of fixes and patches. As always we’d recommend users upgrade their installations to the latest code.

This has been an incredible year for The Xerte Project: we’ve joined the Apereo Foundation and the Open Source Initiative, and firmly established the software as a viable and sustainable open source project; we’ve released version 3.0 with significant enhancements to the editor and several new templates, and we’ve seen our community of users and developers continue to grow.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the project this year, and to everyone out there I wish you a very merry Christmas,
