WACS 0.9.2 is OUT NOW!
The product of more than three years development since the last release,
WACS 0.9.2 is now available. This has seen a massive overhaul of the
underlying collection management system with video files finally given
equal status within the Web-based user interface. There are numerous
other changes throughout the system - please see the release notes for
full details. The matching wacs-php release will follow in a few weeks

New icon management application - wacsiconmgr
One of our key project plans for the WACS 0.9.2 release has been to add
tools for manipulating video icons and thumbnails. The work was recently
completed for the unpacking toolchain and today we're pleased to announce
that the application for manipulating icons and thumbnails, wacsiconmgr,
has now reached the level of completion where it is a usable tool. It is
available in the Subversion repository now and will be in the main build
of WACS 0.9.2 which comes much closer to fruition with this tool being in a
a usable state.

Development Work on 0.9.2 continues
We know it's been a long time since the last release, but work on WACS is
continuing with the new 0.9.2 release well advanced. You can already take
a look at the progressing work in the Subversion repository, but there are
a lot of great new features on their way. Most importantly the web-based
interface to handling video clips is immeasurably improved.

Wacs-PHP 0.9.1 RELEASED!
And now the wacs-php release to go with Wacs 0.9.1 has been released. This
version essentially tracks what happened in the main perl Wacs 0.9.1 release
with the addition of the new content link APIs (iconlink, contentlink and
thumblink), full support for usedirect caching and the like.
In addition, the wacs-devel documentation and icons source package has also
been released. Work now commences in earnest for the Wacs 0.9.2 release.

Wacs 0.9.1 RELEASED!
Finally after nearly a year in development, Wacs 0.9.1 is now out. This is
a significant new release targetted at improving performance, commercial site
usability and configuration flexibility. We have a brand new download content
caching system, the usedirect icon system is now fully working, and it's now
possible to configure wacs to use HTTPS, port 8080 and to work on webhosts that
do not support the idea of a cgi-bin directory. For regular home users, there's
a new saved search editing app that's definitely worth a look and new tools
for download record maintenance for keeping track of your downloads. Our
thanks go to Brian for commissioning some of the commercialisation enhancements.
The Wacs-php release for 0.9.1 will follow shortly.
