Today we published MediaCore CE 0.10.1 which is a bugfix release with only
very minor new features. The update is recommended for all MediaCore CE
operators even though the new version does not contain security fixes.

New Features
---------------------------------------------
- add **OpenGraph meta data** to media pages so Facebook displays a thumbnail
and a description for shared media (contributed by Elishowk).
- This release comes with a **complete Chinese translation** (contributed by
kdumporg)


Bug fixes
---------------------------------------------
- fix exception on the media page when the corresponding media didn't have any
media files attached.
- The built-in error reporting (when the user encounters the "whoopsidaisy"
page) is now compatible with the default Apache configuration. Previously
error reports could not be sent because the Apache alias for '/error'
shadowed the controller method (solved by moving the code in MediaCore CE
to '/errrors').
- plugins can now use Genshi's i18n functionality to translate their templates
and use the MediaCore CE translation for "global" UI elements like the nav
bar.
- fixed exception when uploading a new thumbnail manually.


Other changes (mainly relevant for developers)
----------------------------------------------
- Added ability to check the template variables returned by a controller call
through the ControllerTestCase.
- The URL generator in unit tests is now configured like a regular one so it
also knows about plugin routes.
- feed links are now added in controller functions to reduce the crazy Genshi
py:match stuff

The upgrade should be simple and does not require any database changes. To
upgrade you can simply extract the new source code, activate the virtualenv
and run 'python setup.py develop' (provided that your data directory is not
within the MediaCore CE source code as recommended in the documentation).
