Those fellow bloggers who’ve been drooling over the 1.3 beta we’ve been running here will be happy to know that EE 1.3 is now officially available from the pMachine website:
Version 1.3 delivers a complete redesign of the EE control panel and adds major enhancements to the member management system, now supporting private messaging, member signatures, avatars, and member photos. In addition, version 1.3 adds some great new features like spell checking, a tab manager, and our new “updated sites” module enabling other sites to “ping” your site when they have updated their content. Please check the changelog for a full list of new features, bug fixes, and enhancements. If you are a currently licensed ExpressionEngine user you can download version 1.3 by visiting our download area.
This new release also brings with it the long anticipated Forum Module. The price for the forum module will normally be $49.95 for a non-commercial license and $99.95 for a commercial license, but through the month of July you can save $10 off the non-commercial and $20 off the commercial license. Not too shabby.
