BitNami Stacks in Russian and New Features

We are happy to announce that we added support for a new language thanks to contributions from our community: Russian. We just released Russian versions for several of our stacks: WordPress, Drupal, Joomla! and Redmine.

These stacks also ship with SSL enabled by default. An SSL certificate gets automatically generated and configured in Apache during setup. Of course you will want to replace it with a real one from a certificate authority if you run it in production, the idea is to ease the task of getting SSL up and running in your server. We will be adding SSL support to the rest of stacks over the next few days.

We like to keep our stacks up to date. We have updated multiple components and libraries for our Linux and OSX stacks, including upgrading:
  • MySQL to 5.5.21
  • SQLite to 3.7.10
  • OpenSSL to 1.0.1
  • zlib to 1.2.6
  • OpenLDAP to 2.4.23
  • ImageMagick to 6.7.5
  • ...and more
We are looking to translate BitNami Stacks to more languages. If you would like to help, please check our wiki entry on translations and start translating in Thanks to Wjacheslav Wolski for the Russian translation!
