Bricolage 1.9 Released

The Bricolage Team just announced the release of Bricolage version 1.9.0. I have not yet test driven this release yet but the notes claim that this releases includes the ability to add related media directly within an element. This feature answers a common complaint of Bricolage (and many other CMS) that a user must first upload all binary files and then associate them to an article. There is also an improved preview functionality where the preview page loads in a frame that allows you to work on a template and reload the results more easily. Other new features include: a pluggable authentication system, improved LDAP support, a PHP template burner, and the option to use the HTML WYSIWYG editor Xinha which is an active fork of the now dormant htmlArea3.
