Elgg 4.0.0 stable released

After a few beta releases and one release candidate (RC) we are very proud to present you with the first stable release of Elgg 4.

The RC release showed a very stable installment of Elgg and therefore we do not release another RC. The following fixes are part of this 4.0.0 release.

If you are not familiar with the major changes of Elgg 4.0.0 you should take a look at the release blog of the first beta for Elgg 4. If you are a developer you should also pay attention to the migration docs for Elgg 4.

With the release of this new major version we also ended support for v2.3. Version 3.3 will go into bugfix support only and will not receive new features.

Our attention lately was on getting 4.0 stable. Now that it is out we can focus again on new features in 4.1. Some feature that might make it to Elgg soon are native mention support, a new editor and threaded comments. If you want to help out with development take a look at the contributing guidelines.

A special thanks for all the translators that helped translating Elgg 4.0 into many languages. Is your language missing in Elgg? Start translating now!
