5.4.1 Release Candidiate 1
- jQuery UI 1.8.4 and jQuery 1.4.2 are now included. Nicer jQuery UI default theme
- Select attribute now has autocomplete view
- Attempting better garbage collection across the board
- move an aliased page and it no longer moved the original
- more consistent styling in opera
- SQL based install should take much less time, fewer resources
- fixed user selector form helper to work when dialog isn't specified
- New blog related blocks and functionality, search custom templates
We've tweaked the sample content to better highlight the features of concrete5 that make it easy to blog. We've also added an autocomplete view, updated jQuery, sped up the installation process and fixed a bunch of bugs.

I had some trouble upgrading from beta 1, but a clean install has been fine. The only problem I've experienced so far is that it wouldn't accept a new password for the admin user in Opera or IE 8. It successfully changed the password in Firefox.
It's great that you've added examples and blocks for blogging. If people want a dashboard-driven solution they'll still be able to purchase an add-on, but it's great that you've illustrated how to do it in a page/block-driven approach.
That's a great release :)
I am very happy you upgraded jQuery to 1.4.2 and jqueryUI to 1.8.4, that makes my "upgrade jquery(ui)" package obsolete.
I've tested it a lot and I couldn't find any bugs so far, upgrading from 5.4.1b2 worked fine too. Cleaning up some tiny files couldn't harm tho :)
Also you have the .DSStore file in the zip archive :P
Just about to start a couple of new builds now and very keen to start off with the new 5.4.1 functionality and performance...would I be safe to assume that if I start with the RC1 just posted, successfully upgrading to the final, stable release will be a fairly safe procedure, or am I still taking a risk there?
