Articles: Zikula 1.1.1 and PostNuke Migration Distribution Released

Contributed by Simon on Feb 02, 2009 - 01:59 PM


Today I am pleased to announce that we are releasing Zikula 1.1.1 and the PostNuke migration distribution, based on the 1.1.1 Zikula Core. Zikula 1.1.1 is the first bugfix release for the 1.1 series, and fixes 65 bugs found in 1.1.0. You can see the full list at the CoZi. The migration distribution is built on the 1.1.1 core, with the 1.1 equivalents for each of the modules that were previously in PostNuke.

This will be the only published migration distribution for 1.1.1, so we strongly encourage you to use this release to migrate your PostNuke site. The 1.1 series is now very stable and few bugs have been postponed to 1.1.2. Meanwhile development on 1.2.0 and 2.0.0 continues, for those not aware 1.2.0 will be the first release including gettext and 2.0.0 will bring the latest architectural evolvements as we move towards a leaner codebase with more added features for developers and users alike.

For those migrating from a PostNuke installation we strongly recommend you read the upgrade instructions in the docs directory. Those running 1.1.0 can use the patch provided below, while those running 1.0.x should download the full distribution and read the upgrade instructions in the docs directory.

Download links in the extended text.

Congrats again!
Just wanted to point out the little footnote on this article:


Foot notes: Localised migration distributions for our international community will be made available for French, German and Dutch locales at their respective Cozi community projects this evening.

I will be uploading those beasts later today / this evening to the respective Cozi pages.

Thank you for the update and all the efforts of the developers!

The links to the Zikula 1.1.0 => Zikula 1.1.1 patch above is currently broken. It should read: (.zip) (.tar.gz)

Thanks Teb and all of the others who worked so hard getting this distribution working. I hope we can get thousands of .764 sites moved to Zikula thanks to your efforts. Awesome!

so the "Zikula 1.1.1 Upgrade Distro" upgrades from Postnuke. 764 to Zikula 1.1.1 right? Since the version of PN isn't mentioned in the article, I wanted some clarification.

It should work for .76x, yes. I really wouldn't recommend using it on .75x, though theoretically it could work.

Since yesterday evening I am already upgrading in "one site per hour" speed - no unexpected problems so far.

Thanks to all people involved!

upgrade 1.0.x
i suppose i should use zk 1.1.1 in order to update every 1.0.x site, isn't it?

also, like slam, i've just done 3 distro upgrade from .764 (with distro upgrade RC2) and everything works like a charm!

thank you all for this great great work!

Way to go!

I can't wait to migrate my two PostNuke 0.764 sites to Zikula 1.1.1 this afternoon.

Question, what if I want Spanish support for the new Zikula? (since my sites are in Spanish).

(And I probably should go read more documents before asking, anyway?).

Thanks again for the big effort, guys! :)

Spanish language pack at I think... Otherwise check the flag at the bottom of the page.

Thanks, Simon!

I found the Spanish files at but there is no 1.1.1 file yet, just 1.1. Can I assume it is safe to use that version?

Support is best obtained in the forums... However, in general language changes only happen in minor and major releases, so the 1.1 language pack will be fine with 1.1.1

What makes a Migration Distribution different than a regular one?

Tested successfully for upgrading i guess
Teb did an excellent job packing, texting and supporting all the required stuff to make a successfull migration, that's why this is not simply the first bugfix release of 1.1 icon_wink

@Bronto: The normal full package contains the former Postnuke modules that haven't been replaced with third party modules. The migration distribution also contains these 3rd party modules - so you can upgrade a complete Postnuke-Site.
