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.
We are nearly completed with the new installation/upgrade script and have put it in our forum for people to try out - it's going well. The upgrade process is much better - it does not touch your previous site tables and therefore makes it very easy to both downgrade (if something goes wrong) and work on your new site (perhaps in another directory) until it is finished.
This Sunday, June 24th, we're going to be hanging around the forum specifically to help people with installation problems from 2 - 6pm (GMT - London time). If you have been having any difficulties please drop by - we'll have live chat turned on will be helping directly resolve any issues.
This is a great opportunity for us to refine the installation/upgrade tools and get feedback from our users.
Have a great (hopefully sunny) weekend.
We are having a little trouble getting our notifications from Paypal and we're looking into the problem.
If you have purchased Indexhibit and have not received access to your download on your account page please send us a note - we will look into the matter immediately.
And thank you very much for supporting Indexhibit.
Over the years we've given many workshops to artists and students about how to use Indexhibit - we feel it's a great privilege, alot of fun and we really enjoy doing them. In the next year we already have a few workshops tentatively planned (in both Europe and the US) and if you or your school (or even arts institution) is interested in inviting us to speak/workshop please get in touch with us.
We have also heard from many people all across the globe who utilize Indexhibit in their own coursework - teaching Indexhibit. We want to hear about your experiences, wishes and even complaints about Indexhibit within the academic setting.
We plan to combine the information with our own and create tools that can be of value and assistance for those teaching Indexhibit (and perhaps basic programming for arts/design students in general).
If you know anybody teaching with Indexhibit or if you have utilized it yourself, please pass the word along and/or get in touch with us via our contact page. Thanks.
Updated: We've resolved the problem - now we need to get confirmation notes to people. If you haven't seen one arrive to your mailbox (check your spam too), you can try our reconfirmation form or send us a note via the contact form.
We are having some difficulties with our registration system that popped up over the weekend. If you are having problems keep checking this post - we will make an announcement when it is resolved later this afternoon.
Thanks for your patience.
