The latest nightly builds of Reason have some significant changes to the administrative interface, which we believe make it friendlier and easier to use. Here's a full post on the changes.

Reason developers from Carleton and Luther Colleges will be at the 10th Annual GusDay Conference on the Carleton College campus on Friday, December 4. We'll be showing off Reason at an exhibit booth during the vendor sessions and available for questions throughout the day. We also plan to debut version 1.1 of the Reason LiveCD, which provides a simple way to test out Reason.

Most of the web team is at HighEdWeb 2009.
The Implementing Reason CMS with Small Teams and Small Budgets session today went well. Thanks for Steve, Charles, Matt, and Melissa for telling your Reason story.
Check out the presentation website to read details about each school. Later today we'll continue the discussion at a special interest group on open source content management, and a dinner with current and prospective Reason schools.

With a two person web team, and a very short timeline, Beloit College launched its Reason powered website on September 3, 2009.

The Carleton Web Services Group is working on our plans for HighEdWeb 2009. The conference has become a web services group favorite, and always has a range of great developer-focused sessions.

If you've seen Carleton's new Admission Site, you may have noticed the new Google Maps-based campus maps we're using. We created these for a still-ongoing campus map project, but thought they fit well on the Admissions site.
Since the site's launch we've received a few requests for information on the process of creating these maps. I decided to write up a little bit about our process here.

We recently received a request to move an externally hosted site into our local Reason instance. The challenge is that the domain name is supposed to remain outside of the carleton.edu realm. Reason has never supported this natively, though it could be achieved with unpleasant hacks. With Reason 4 Beta 8, this will all change and subdomains and external domains will be fully supported.
Bonus benefit of this work: the reason_package folder will no longer have to be within the web tree.

The Web Services Group at Carleton is making our boring News page into a lively blog! Watch this space for various forms of Reason-related geekery from members of our team. Let the fun begin.
