The ApexNinjas Blog Platform v2.0 is released!

I’ve been promising the release of the new version of our ApexNinjas Blog Platform that is running You can read the initial release notes on the Blog Plaform page. You can download and install it with no costs or hidden agendas.

Soon, we will update the release notes with detailed information about security and CSS customization. Just as a peak preview, the application was tested for security leaks using Recx ApexSec tool and respects all the best practices involved in developing APEX applications. It also has a simple role-based access mechanism, making some pages and features available only for administrator users and separating the data between regular users.

Also, we spent an important amount of time making the platform configurable, so you can customize the sidebar widgets, article bars, CSS layouts and so on. We will get back with instructions on how to work with the Administration Panel soon.

Meanwhile, download it, install it, enjoy it and please, send us some feedback!
