ExpressionEngine 1.6 was released earlier today, and it contains a boatload of new features.
The biggest feature is the “Multiple Site Manager,” which lets you to run multiple websites — each with their own individual settings, templates, and weblogs — from a single installation of EE (you can watch a video of it in action here).
Another big feature is the new “Pages” module, which allows you to create static-type content (previously, you had to use Mark Huot’s ingenious “Pages” module, now renamed to “Tomes”).
All in all, it looks great. Kudos to Rick Ellis and the rest of the Ellislab team. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got some downloading and installing to do.
