Now that RSGallery2 3RC1 is downloaded more than 3000 times, we are proud to release RSGallery2 3.0.1
(for Joomla! 1.6.x and 1.7.x
). With a Thank You to the users who gave feedback, there have been some improvements and additions.
This version has several improvements on its frontend My Galleries (zip upload, lists have selectboxes to (un)publish/delete multiple items) and the list is properly paginated. A regenerate display images option is added and an option to set the default state for uploaded images to (un)published.
Thanks to user Joomir persian language files (fa-IR) were added.
See the changelog for all the changes and bugfixes and feel free to report any bugs or problems in the forum.

Instructions for new installation
Joomla's Backend > Extensions > Extension Manager > Browse... (find the downloaded file) > Upload File & Install
Go to the Backend > Extensions > Install/Uninstall > Browse to package file > Click Upload File & Install (Note: upgrade will automatically overwrite all RSGallery2 system files, but it will leave your images untouched.)
Upgrade when you have custom templates
1. Backup your custom RSG2 templates if you have any;
2. Uninstall previous version from Joomla backend (databasetables and images will be
kept, but RSG2 template directory will be removed):
Backend > Extensions > Install/Uninstall > Components > Select RSGallery2 > click Uninstall
3. Install new version (install recognises old version number and will automatically upgrade):
Backend > Extensions > Install/Uninstall > Browse to package file > Click Upload File & Install
4. Install your custom RSG2 template if you had any;
5. Redo any custom changes
Edit 24 January 2012
will not work in Joomla 2.5
due to a backwards compatibility issue. We plan on releasing RSGallery2 3.1.0 as soon as Joomla 2.5.0 is released and 3.1.0 is tested on Joomla 2.5.0.
In the mean time, for those interested and only for testing purposes there is an RSGallery2 Nightly Build available that is tested and does work with Joomla 2.5 beta1, beta2 en RC1.
