The wait is over - Coppermine 1.5.8 [stable] is here
« on: August 06, 2010, 10:47:20 am »

It is with great pride that the Coppermine community announces to the world the immediate availability of Coppermine 1.5.8 stable. As a community of contributors, we have been through celebrations and tribulations. We have had fun, and we have worked hard. We have learned from and helped one another. What started two and a half years ago has grown into what we believe to be the finest PHP photo gallery yet.

People have contributed enormous amounts of time and energy to make Coppermine 1.5.x what it is today. Developers and contributors have collaborated over long distances, around the clock, enthusiastically contributing to the project! Hours writing code combined with intense discussions on everything from usability to extensibility have defined many developers' lives over the last two and a half years. It is not only the developers that have been hard at work but you the community. Without your help testing, translating, requesting features, contributing themes and plugins, supporting others and much more we could never have come this far.

Feature Rich

Over the years the community has contributed modifications and ideas that have added fantastic functionality to Coppermine. We have taken the best of these and added them to the core making this the most complete release yet.

     • Built in Captcha engine
     • Built in Watermark engine
     • New Upload Interface
     • Improved Groups control
     • Improved Category Management tool
     • Drag and drop sorting of albums
     • Improved Search engine
     • New core ‘Curve’ theme
     • Improved image tagging
     • Enhanced plugin engine.


Good documentation is equally as important as good code and the new Coppermine manual has come of age. It is now a mighty tome covering almost everything you will ever need to know about getting your gallery running and then maintaining it. Many hours of work have gone into the docs so if you have questions please take time to review them before asking questions on the forum.
The documentation is an ever growing beast so if you find something that is missing or needs changing then we would love your suggestions or contributions.


     • Package Download
     • A fresh Installation
     • Upgrading from an older version


Once again the community have risen to the challenge. Coppermine now supports a number of languages but we would love to see many more. If you have the language skills then please share your abilities with the community. If often takes just one person to begin translation for others to follow and very quickly we can bring Coppermine to a whole new audience. If you start a translation keep uploading what you have so others can also contribute.

There is a new translation guide that ships with cpg1.5.x that is mandatory to read for potential translators as well as the translation announcement thread "[Help wanted]: Translations for CPG1.5.x".

How else can I help?

With a new plugin engine we are looking forward to seeing what the imaginative Coppermine community can bring us. We have always been amazed by your efforts so keep them coming. The new Curve theme will also hopefully spawn many new community contributions. CPG 1.4.x has an amazing variety of themes and we would like to see 1.5.x surpass that.

Supporting the many users of Coppermine is also a task that everyone can get involved with. The dev team is small but the community is huge. So give yourself a warm fuzzy feeling by helping those in need. Sometimes the smallest tips can make the biggest difference.

What will happen to 1.4.x?

With all the new features of 1.5.x the development team have decided that only security fixes will be applied to 1.4.x in the short term. However, there will come a time when 1.4.x will be laid to rest. While we have yet to decide on a firm date for this to happen expect support to be withdrawn in around 6 months. With all the new features that 1.5.x brings we firmly believe most users to want to upgrade long before then.

Many Thanks

We would like to thank the whole community for all their efforts over the years. Without your time and expertise we could never have come this far.

We would also like to thank Bytemark for providing the project with their excellent hosting services. A busy website such as this requires a reliable server and we have not been let down.

Sourceforge are also high on the list of people we would love to buy a pint or two for. Without their repository many free, open source projects such as ours would struggle to survive.
