A major change in Thelia is expected in version 2.0

Thelia 1.5.2 already available in Bêta will be due next week. Next, by mid-september, version 1.5.3 will be delivered with a new template that will be elegant, responsive and pedagogic.

Thelia 2.0 should be released in late 2013. This will be a major evolution of Thelia, with a significant batch of changes.

To accelerate the development of version 2 and to facilitate {{interoperability with other CMS}}, we will rely on components Symfony 2, solid components, now used in large projects. A documentation will be composed to guide contributors in the production of extensions.

An API dedicated to the development of plugins will be implemented, thereby enhancing the ability to easily extend the functionality of Thelia.

Among the major changes are planned:
a new architecture based on components Symfony 2,
– the implementation of unit testing phpunit and continuous integration Travis CI,
– a more efficient administration interface for e-tailers,
– the establishment of a REST API,
– a more effective cache with the possibility to use reverse-proxy like Varnish,
internationalization of the language of loops.

The code of Thelia will also be placed on Github.

All these changes are mainly technical, but online retailers will not be left behind as this new version will carry a lot of new features like:
– a more effective administration including a new table of statistics more advanced,
– a better optimization SEO,
– an integration with social networks more advanced,
– gateways to many CMS and CRM,
– and many more.

Finally, it is important to note that what makes the strength of Thelia, namely the logic of template and loops, allowing a rapid and simplified integration, will be retained.

The whole team is very excited to develop this version 2, which promises great news for Thelia and the community!
