2013 has been a year of hard late nights but very rewarding work for the PyroCMS team. Ever since we [announced our plans](https://www.pyrocms.com/blog/2012/11/foundations-for-our-future) a year ago for 2.3 to start leveraging Laravel 4 and general Composer components we have been coding our collective backsides off to make it a reality. We can all certainly agree that 2.3.0 has taken longer than expected thus far (thank you all for your patience), but it has been without a doubt the biggest improvement to the CMS we have ever had.

Today I'd like to let everyone know that I'm not longer working on PyroCMS as a core team member. It was a difficult decision, but ultimately I'm no longer able to devote the time and energy that the project deserves going forward.
My contribution to the project has been streams, which started out as a standalone module in 2010 and was gradually added to the community core over time as streams core and the streams API. It's now one of the underlying components of Pyro that powers things like page types and user data.

We are pleased to announce the immediate release of PyroCMS v2.2.2 to fix a number of bugs that existed in the v2.2.1 version.

We have released another version of PyroCMS: v2.2.1. This release brings a good number of bug fixes and even a couple small features.

We are thrilled to announce the release of PyroCMS v2.2.0! We as the core team and the community have been working on this release for a number of months and it is exciting to release it into the wild. While v2.2.0 has all of the old familiar features that you depend on it brings a few game changers: page types with custom fields, custom blog fields, comments that close after a set period of time, file tags or keywords, and many more.

Now that we're all back from LaraCon in Washington DC last weekend, now seems like a great time to talk about how things are going on the conversion to Laravel We tried to make it pretty clear that we would not be using any of Laravel in 2.2.0 (which is now at RC2 and approaching final in the next week or so), nor would 2.3.0 be a good time for a re-write if we want to get you new features any time soon. Still, people have been asking a lot about when the "Laravel version" of PyroCMS is going to be out. It's great to see so many people excited about the switch (we knew you would be), but it is going to take some time.

We are extremely pleased to announce that PyroCMS v2.2.0 has reached RC2. We have fixed a lot of bugs in the last several weeks and we are nearing the final release. You can help us out now but downloading and trying it out for yourself, then reporting any glitches that you might find. We are running RC2 on some production sites ourselves.

A couple of us have been working on something new the last few weeks and yesterday we were able to launch: a brand new forum for the PyroCMS community!

Last night we tagged PyroCMS 2.2 beta, and we're doing something a little unorthodox for a 2nd beta release - we're adding a new feature. It's one that we have told users would be in 2.2, and when it wasn't ready for the initial beta, we decided to sneak it in: custom blog fields.
This change comes with an important syntax update that users should be aware of when upgrading to 2.2 - the blog views now use the Lex tags. This is an important change for a few reasons.

For the upcoming 2.2 release of PyroCMS, we've been working on integrating Streams into the pages fields. We went through several revisions of how that should actually work, and we're really happy with where the feature has ended up. The idea behind streams is that a single data system gives a CMS more power to manage and structure content, and page types is a major step towards making that happen in PyroCMS.

I had a PyroCMS user remark to me the other day that there were a lot of Streams docs to get through, so he tended to forget some of the features while creating sites. That's true - there's a lot of functionality in streams so it may be difficult to find exactly what you're looking for when you need it. So, here are a few features that you may have missed in the docs that could come in handy on your next project.

We're really excited about the direction that PyroCMS is going and what we're working on for 2.2 and beyond. However, there's one thing that we really needed going forward to support our development efforts: great docs.
So, I'm very happy to announce that today we're unveiling our new, reorganized and revamped documentation for PyroCMS 2.1! You can check them out here.

We are pleased to announce the release of PyroCMS v2.1.3! We've had a very busy summer so far and it's been a few weeks since we released v2.1.2. A number of bugs were reported and we've been busy fixing those up along with working on v2.2.0-dev.
Along with working on the core of PyroCMS we have also been spending a good deal of time working on the other necessary bits: our hosted version, the store, support, and other business related tasks. We've greatly appreciated the pull requests that came in from you as community members!

We have been quietly working on some new features for some time and we are eager to show them to you. The first is PyroCMS Hosted.

After three weeks of being in BETA testing, PyroCMS v2.1.0 is ready and it's one of our most exciting updates yet. v2.0.x had a brand new interface sure, but v2.1.x has started to make some real head-way down a path that leads to very awesome things. We are sporting a brand new version of CodeIgniter, integration with Amazon S3 and Rackspace Cloud Files, custom profile data, improved CSRF support, major speed improvements and a great new Asset management system.

The whole team has been slogging away on the 2.1/develop branch for a while now and it is finally time to release a beta. v2.1.0-beta brings some massive features that people have been waiting for a while now and while we need to polish up a few rough edges we think it is time you guys got in on the action. Grab a copy from GitHub and help us test it out.

PyroCMS is a great project to work on, but it's not all fun and games. We're all working hard to get new versions complete, bugs squashed, demo's improved, addons built and all that jazz, but while we are doing that there are always questions to be answered, people who need help and documentation to be improved. So far we are a team of 4, but that is not enough - we need a part-time support member of staff

We are announcing the release of v2.0.3 to fix a few little bugs in the 2.0 family. We have been working away on the develop version of 2.1 and we expect to have it out in the next few weeks as the next release. While we didn't have any serious bugs that needed to be fixed there were a couple minor details that v2.0.3 takes care of. If anything has been bothering you then read through the changelog to see if an upgrade will clear that up for you.

We've been extremely busy over the last few days doing what we love doing: making PyroCMS more epic. You can use our great new demo, we've made a bunch of new Documentation, there has been loads of progress on v2.1-dev and v2.0.2 is out to fix a few things.

It's been almost a month since we released v2.0.0 and we've had some amazing feedback. Code contributions are up, add-on sales are up, our follower count on Twitter is way up, traffic has doubled and our sales are doing great. We've spent a little time fixing some bugs and now we'd like to announce v2.0.1, like v2.0.0 but better.

One of the most difficult part of an open source project is the documentation. It's critical for users to have great docs, but it's almost always an afterthought. So starting today, we're taking a few extra steps to make PyroCMS documentation more complete, accurate, and logically organized.

As PyroCMS has become more widely used and we have a more diverse community we would like to ask for your input. With v1.3.0 we launched PyroCMS Professional which allowed developers to rebrand the admin panel and manage multiple sites from one installation and we have a v2.0 coming out soon with a huge load of amazing new features and a great new Control Panel, but we would like your help in where we go next.

If you follow us on Twitter you'll know we've been busy little bees working on an amazing new Control Panel, we've added a ton of new features and were just about to release v1.4, but now we've decided to go a little further and release a full blown v2.0 next along with a great new feature: Lex. Lex handles Tags and is better, faster and stronger than the Tag system in v1.x. This article will explain why we are changing, how - if at all - this will affect you and what is happening with the new release.
