We have just released version 2.0.4 of Refinery CMS. This release builds on our previous releases and adds many improvements and bug fixes. Importantly, we have fixed a security issue which means if you are running any previous builds in the 2.0.x release that you should upgrade to 2.0.4 as soon as possible.
The Refinery CMS Core team is proud to announce the release of the next major version of Refinery — Refinery CMS 3. It's the most amazing, most technically advanced Refinery CMS ever released and we think you'll just love it.
Refinery 3 comes hot on the heels of Refinery 2, and reflects some of the big technological leaps forward that have occurred in the past four weeks:
Refinery 3 lets you change the back-end mount path (no more /refinery! Yay!)
Refinery 2.0 makes a number of very important updates to the project. Chief amongst these, Refinery now supports Rails 3.2 and the asset pipeline, and is now mountable as a Rails engine. You can see a list of the most notable changes in the change log.

Thanks, Tony!

Phil Arndt joined Resolve Digital shortly before the public release. He picked up what was there and took it to the next level (and then some). During this time it was hard not to see Phil's name mentioned as...
As part of our support for previous versions of Refinery CMS, we have released version 0.9.7.14 to fix some issues that were present in 0.9.7.13. This has been done using some contributions that were made to the Rails 3 versions of Refinery CMS that we were able to move back into Rails 2 as well.
This fixes an important bug where the user is not able to insert images into the visual editor.

The Rails 3 final gem has just come out yesterday and I would like to announce that Refinery CMS 0.9.8 officially supports it! This makes Refinery CMS the first popular Rails CMS to support Rails 3. Woohoo!
Rails 3 Support
Alex Coles (myabc) did a lot of the ground work to get Refinery up and running on Rails 3. His efforts were picked up on Refinery CMS Day where the community got together to see just how far we could get in 24 hours.
