Wacs 1.0.0 development is already in progress
Despite the long delays in getting Wacs-PHP 0.9.2 finished, work has in
the meantime been continuing on new features for the next release of
WACS. We hope at this point to reach the 1.0.0 release milestone towards
the end of 2017. Of course, whether this happens remains to be seen.
More details as work progresses.

Wacs-PHP 0.9.2 has finally been released. Yes, It's OUT NOW!
So sorry for the long delay since the release of Wacs 0.9.2, but the
matching wacs-php is now also available. The big news is that jQuery
replaces XAJAX in the modelsel app and in the sample code. XAJAX is
now in a seperate package which you only need if you have your own
older code that requires it. The other major news is that modelsel is
now joined by a similar dynamic web app for looking at sets.
Unfortunately you will need to modify your wacs.cfg config file to set
the URL at which your copy of jQuery can be found. Full details of how
to do this are in the RELEASENOTES. The next release of Wacs will
create this automatically for you.

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.
