CKAN 1.5 finally got released on Wednesday and the dev team is very pleased! Lots of new features released: see the announcement http://ckan.org/2011/11/09/ckan-1-5-release/ It is great to also release an Ubuntu package, which we’ve already used to deploy eight CKAN servers. Mozfest hit London last weekend, with three of the team there as a “Human API” for […]
We’re proud to announce a major new release of CKAN! 1.5 represents a big step forward since our last major release in May. Alongside our usual PyPI release, we are now also releasing regular Ubuntu 10.04 packages, for easy installation.

Latest CKAN news for the past two weeks: OGD Camp in Warsaw – it was great to meet face-to-face with lots of our partners and friends in the open data ecosystem last week.

There is ever-growing activity with CKAN and we thought we’d give a flavour of what’s been going on. Recently: On our general e-mail list ckan-discuss there’s been some interesting discussions about: providing Debian packages for distributing data firing up a CKAN quickly for a disaster recovery situation using CKAN’s faceted search to find datasets with SPARQL […]
Today we released a new version of CKAN (1.4.3) which covers a good number of bug fixes, speed ups and some new features. The release is on PyPI and source is at BitBucket. For example, now you can view a dataset as it was in CKAN at a past date or revision using an @ […]
