New Features:

Tickers: Added fullfeatured advanced Tickers system which is an

alternative to blocks. Displays any amount of information in a scrollable

single line. Scroll speed adjustable. This feature is primarily for

headlines services (this one is builtin as RSS News for NukePack) but any

type of other tickers can be added. Rules are exactly same as for PostNuke

advanced blocks.

NukeBrowser: A web browser which displays almost all web pages from around

the web in PostNuke portal. Frames, forms, redirects supported, javascript


SiteNews: An automated site news generator scans your site and generates

daily articles containing changes. Modular system so module developers may

add config files for the scanner in the includes/sitenews dir. New backendnp

provides whole sitenews based RSS feeds from your site. Multilingual

variables supported (see below).

NukePack Admin Panel: ALL NukePack features can be enabled/disabled,


Multilingual variables: Block titles, content, Articles may contain language

dependent variables (i.e. _TOPICS). If ML option active, these variables

will be translated on the fly.

Enhanced features:

Enhanced News page:

Supports multicolumn layout adjustable 1-4 columns. Allows image attachments

to articles to be more attractive. Centerblocks and Multilingual variables

supported (see above).

Enhanced Blocks system: All blocks are scrollable manually or automatically,

can be reloaded in adjustable intervals of 5 sec - 1 hour independently.

Administrator may restrict appearance of any block for all, members only or

guest only. Added center position to allow blocks to appear in the

centerblock of News page too. "File type" phpNuke blocks are also supported

without any modification. Shadeblocks: blocks can be minimized/restored by

members. Multilingual variables supported (see above).

Enhanced Headlines: Admin has been moved to separate module from blocks

admin. Added NukeSuck feature: You may "suck" feeds from any regular news

site even without RSS/RDF service (See example at the end of this file).

Headlines can be used for blocks or tickers. Builtin NukeBrowser support.

install/uninstall scripts from any module's sql file. Lazy developer

support: "sucks" license/credit/help information from modules' script
