+Release notes for FusionForge 4.7
+This is the first public release of FusionForge. FusionForge is based
+on GForge, and started as an identical copy, with only a name change
+to avoid confusion with the proprietary versions of GForge (known as
+GForge Advanced Server or GForge AS). As such, it benefits from
+mature code and known-good infrastructure, and builds on it for the
+This 4.7 release is focused on bringing the recent evolutions out to
+the community in an official stable release. This should provide a
+solid base as a starting point for community-based development, making
+it easier for enhancements to be maintained. The FusionForge name was
+chosen to reflect this: this is a community effort, and we hope to
+hear about your improvements. Contributing these improvements would
+make their future long-term maintenance easier for everyone.
+Major changes since previous versions (of GForge) include:
+- Support for PHP5.
+- Support for PostgreSQL 8.x.
+- Translations are now managed by gettext.
+- Support for several configurations running on the same code.
+- Improved security, no need for PHP register_globals.
+- Available as full install CD.
+- New wiki plugins (using MediaWiki or phpWiki).
+- New online_help plugin.
+- New phpwebcalendar plugin.
+- New project hierarchy plugin.
+Things to keep in mind when installing:
+- FusionForge is based on GForge, and the renaming is quite recent.
+ So the code still contains lots of references to GForge. This will
+ be fixed as time passes.
+- Full text search using the primitives provided by PostgreSQL 8.3
+ isn't quite complete yet.
+- Not all plugins are packaged for all distributions yet.
+Things to keep in mind when upgrading:
+- Since internationalisation was changed from a hand-made system to
+ standard gettext, locally customised translations will no longer
+ override standard ones. This will be addressed in a future release.
