Noosfero, version 0.37.0

These release notes describes what's new on the latest version of Noosfero, called "Eket"

Allow disabling the need for e-mail confirmation

Before this release, when an user wanted to create a profile on a Noosfero environment he needed to fill in the registration form and then follow the link he received on his e-mail to activate the account. In this release we included a new configuration for the environment, making this procedure optional.

From now on, the environment administrator can choose if new users will need to confirm their e-mails before activating their accounts. Checking the option "Skip e-mail confirmation for new users" on Admin control panel, the users will be already activated after sending the registration form.

Skip e-mail confirmation option

Let all community members edit some articles

On Noosfero, the permissions that an user has on a community are defined by the role the user plays on it. Only the environment administrators can define which permissions each role will have.

This new feature includes the option "Allow all members to edit this article" when creating/editing an article on a community. This way, regardless the role the user is playing he will be able to edit the article.

All members can edit option
