Plumi 0.2 Released

Dave Fregon
0.2 Release of Plumi Video Sharing Platform
http://plumi.org
http://plone.org/products/plumi/

We're pleased to announce a series of major updates to Plumi, the  
free software video sharing content management system. These updates  
include major enhancements to site speed and reduced server load, a  
new design and features such as tagging and call outs.

More specifically the improvements include....

CALL OUTS
We've added a new content type: "Call Outs" to help people looking  
for content for a DVD compilation, screenings, film festival or crew  
for a production.
eg. http://www.engagemedia.org/recent_callouts

COMMENT ENHANCEMENTS
The addition of qPloneComments adds email notification if someone  
comments on a video or responds to a comment and allows fine grained  
administration of commenting. A comments portlet is also added to the  
front page.
eg. http://engagemedia.org/recent_comments
http://projects.quintagroup.com/products/wiki/qPloneComments

VODCASTING/RSS2
We've improved the vodcasting performance using a catalogue based  
RSS2 feed view implementation, meaning RSS2 feeds load much faster.

TAGGING
Tagging is now based on the Vaporisation product resulting in much  
faster page loads and navigation of content.
eg. http://www.engagemedia.org/tagcloud/view
http://plone.org/products/vaporisation/

PERFORMANCE AND TEMPLATE ENHANCEMENTS
- templates are refactored into a new 'Five' style view  
implementation that are Plone 3 ready resulting in faster page loads
- video listings no longer wake the objects from the zope database  
(ZODB) improving catalogue searching and speed
- Plumi 0.2 runs now on Plone 2.5.5 (Plone 3 coming soon)
- a new cleaner design - thanks Trollfot!
