We are proud to release the next and hopefully last beta version of Fabrik, Fabrik 2.0b3. This release contains a large number of bug fixes (over 470 commits since the second beta) from the previous 2.0b2 release from June.
This release would not have been possible without the communities help in reporting bugs, suggesting fixes, posting translations and general inspiration! I encourage you all to continue helping us so we can quickly move towards release candidates and then a final version
First of all make a back up of all your current Fabrik files and database tables, if anything goes wrong in the upgrade process you will always be able to revert to your old files.
Now install Fabrik as if it was a new component. Your data won't be overwritten but Fabrik's files will be updated.
There are no database changes to be made.
You may have to re-edit and save date and user elements. Please note that date formatting now uses php's strftime formatting method.
"Moose will be making his autumn migration from the deepest Forest of Dean to Bristol over the week before the festival. Your mission is to find him and photograph him. Text 'moose' to 60300 to receive a map of the moose's current location. But be careful, the moose will be told your location and if he 'shoots' you before you 'shoot' him you are out of the game. Prizes for photographs in various categories including first sighting."Simon asked me to collect the SMS messages and MMS file uploads and plot them onto a Google map, something for which Fabrik was ideally suited. Its been great fun working on such a off-beat project. Check out the spoof documentary video Simon produced for the game, if only to see the absurd (or perhaps slightly perturbing) costume Simon will be wearing all this weekend.
