Pika CMS 5.0.1 is Released

Greetings Pika Community,

I am writing to announce the immediate availability of Pika CMS 5.0.1 for general release. Those of you with Pika subscriptions can download the software from:


This release of Pika addresses several bugs for users of Pika CMS version 5.0.0 Below is the list of issues addressed.
  • Fixed issue with cookies preventing multi-site login
  • Fixed bug with activity interval rounding
  • Fixed issue with templating quoted tags in pikaTempLib
  • Updated case filler script and corrected to work with MySQL 5.1+
  • Corrected issue with the MegaReport not sending to spreadsheet
  • Updated iCal subscription page (ssl enabled for iCal/Sunbird)

Also, I'd like to announce a change that we are making to the way we number releases.

Starting with this release (Pika CMS 5.0.1) we will begin numbering our releases with 3 digits. The numbers (in order from left to right) refer to the major version, minor version, and patch number. This methodology should appear familiar as it is used in a variety of software packages (PHP and MySQL, for example).

In prior versions of Pika CMS we have numbered a release with both a major and minor version number in order to differentiate newer versions from previous versions. We have also released modules, reports, and patches to Pika that required or were geared towards one or more of these specific versions. As a result of this, and the growing number of installations of Pika, it has become apparent that we need to append more information onto our version numbers in order to indicate specifically the version and the patches that have been applied to individual installs.

As always, please feel free to contact us with any questions at support@pikasoftware.com.
