Today we tried many – choosing a font is like pledging allegiance to a band or tribe. What do we choose to be the font of Indexhibit?
Should it come from a large foundry?
Should it be free?
Should it be designed specifically for the web?
Should it be quirky with a personality?
Are there any Indexhibit users who have made webfonts or who would like to make or propose a font for the site?
A manifesto, a proclamation, statement of intent, our beliefs, a rallying cry, beginning as we mean to go on…
We learned today that credit cards are in the shape of the Golden Rectangle. So, your gold card is gold in colour and in form!
Less than one percent of our free users in the past had donated and currently this trend continues with our free requests. This was not an easy decision but for Indexhibit to remain independent we can no longer offer our CMS for free.
Perhaps you have noticed that our website is changing - with every refresh! Dan and I are working on our project and contemplating the future of Indexhibit together in London for the next week.

Last night we sent out a support request to all the free requesters of Indexhibit over the past few months. It's a one-time email, we won't be sending these every month to you.
Indexhibit is solely supported by our users and we do need financial help and support to keep the project independent - just as, we believe, most of our users wish to remain independent in their own careers.
All you need to do is login to our site and purchase the Indexhibit that you have been using - click here. You can even purchase multiple copies at the same time.
We greatly appreciate your help.
Shortly, Indexhibit v2.1 will finally be released - we'll have more to say about things at that time.
Today we output a new installation and upgrade system to v2.0.1. The process is still the same for a new installation but our script is much improved.
Upgrading a site from version 0.73 or older to version 2 is now much easier. We have provided a tutorial about upgrades.
Additionally, we also wrote a tutorial about how to update your version 2 Indexhibit to a newer version.
We have fixed a number of bugs and we will shortly be posting information about this on our development blog.
We are still watching the installation/upgrade process closely and we want to know how it's working for you. We recently brought on three people to help us work through the summer on bugs and new features. If you would like to help please get in touch.
