      It is with great pleasure that the Bricolage development team
      announces
      the release of Bricolage 1.8.0. The culmination of over 15 months in
      development, with contributions from over 20 independent developers,
      and new features sponsored by numerous organizations world-wide,
      version 1.8.0 represents a significant new pinnacle for the
      much-lauded
      open-source content management and publishing system. This release
      offers more new features, improvements, and performance gains than
      any
      previous release. There are so many, in fact (over 120), that they
      can't effectively be included in this email. Here are some of the
      highlights:

      * Support for managing multiple sites from a single Bricolage
      installation. Each site has its own categories, templates,
      document
      types, and workflows, and collaboration across sites is supported
      by
      document aliasing and shared workflow desks.

      * Significant performance boosts to search queries and URI
      uniqueness
      validation.

      * Email document distribution, which can be used to email the
      files
      generated by an output channel to one or more email addresses.

      * A greatly simplified and flexible templating and element API.

      * Template sandboxes to enable template development without
      interfering with production templates.

      * Support for Template Toolkit templates
      (http://www.template-toolkit.org).

      * New "Publish" and "Recall" permissions, for improved workflow
      management.

      * Per-user preferences.

      * Document formatting at publish time, rather than publish
      scheduling
      time.

      * New German and Mandarin localizations.

      * Image thumbnails and icons for all media documents.

      * Support for HTMLArea WYSIWYG editing with HTMLArea. See
      http://www.interactivetools.com/products/htmlarea/.
