I’m very happy to announce you that the new version of Rancho is out!

This version has many new things starting by its name/number. We decided to start using n Ubuntu-like versioning and so, instead of just incrementing numbers, we’ll use the year.month notation. So here you have the 9.06!

But what’s new in this new version!?

One of the main new features is the exportation and importation of you accounts using the Rancho Exportation File. This file will contain all the information that you have on your Rancho system so you can use it for example on other systems or as a back up, etc.

Another really useful new feature is that now Rancho can import Basecamp exportation files! This means that you can export your account from Basecamp, import it on your Rancho installation and keep using what you had.

The design changed just a bit regarding the layout which is now fluid, adapting itself to your browser’s width.

For the admins, we introduced a logging system that let you easily see what’s being done in the whole system. The search was also improved in terms of power and presentation. Search results are now divided in categories (Messages, Milestones, Wikiboars, etc.) to be easily filtered according to what users need.

To end, people in every project can now chat with each other with the new integrated real-time chat and a lot of bugs were fixed.

Here are a couple of screenshots:
