Reason 4.4 will be released in early August, mostly because I'm on the North Shore, but also because a few things are still coming together for the TinyMCE integration feature.

We held what is now a semi-annual hack/doc event at Luther College on June 3 and 4, 2013. Some highlights:

We now have available for download a Reason 4.3 Virtual Machine (VM).
The VM is provided in Open Virtualization Format (OVF), compatible with VirtualBox, VMWare, and other virtualization software.
When you launch the VM, based on CentOS, it will get an IP address via DHCP and inform you of that IP on the login screen. You can then visit your Reason CMS instance in your favorite web browser.

Happy Holidays - I have been away on parental leave, but now I'm back, and I wanted to post an update on a few things going on in the world of Reason CMS!
While I think pretty much everyone is running Reason under PHP 5, the next point release of Reason will be no longer support PHP 4. Nightly builds will likely stop supporting PHP 4 early in early January.
In other news, there are three items that will be in the next version of Reason (two are already in nightly builds) that I want to briefly highlight.

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.

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.
