Gantry for WordPress Version 1.20 has been released.
This release contains several important fixes so we highly recommend everybody to update the plugin to 1.20.
Changelog for WordPress Gantry 1.20
# Added a fix to prevent frozen widgets and widgets appearing in wrong overrides
+ Added a script that should automatically fix all existing frozen widgets and overrides
+ Added support for WordPress Multi Site installations
# Added check for instance settings of WordPress widget classes
# The $ signs in page titles should be now displayed properly
^ Added require_once parameter to the locate_type function
# Updated the SmartLoad gizmo JS file to fix XPath Ignores
# Fixed the situation when the MooTools would only get loaded when the Build Spans gizmo is enabled
# Fixed the situation when front-page.php file wouldn't get loaded from the proper location
^ Modified the MU Register gizmo to add very basic width settings to the activate and signup pages
UPDATED : I'm happy to inform that all of the directory-naming issues are now resolved, and that it's again safe to use the WordPress updater to update your version of the Gantry Plugin. From now on every time we release the new version of the Gantry plugin, it will be added to the WordPress.org plugins directory so everyone can easily stay up-to-date.
In order to make the update process easier we've decided to place the Gantry plugin in the WordPress plugins directory, so everybody can easily update it like any other plugin. Unfortunately it didn't go as well as we expected. Because of the naming mistake WordPress isn't replacing the files in the old plugin directory but creates a new one. We're working on fixing that ASAP so everybody can safely and easily update their Gantry.
Please DON'T update the gantry framework via the WordPress updater until the naming issue has been resolved.
If you already updated your plugin, the solution is to FTP to the wp-content/plugins/ directory and change the directory's name from 'gantry-template-framework' to 'gantry', go back to the Plugins menu in the admin and reactivate the Gantry framework or remove it completely and install the version from the http://gantry-framework.org or the one found in your theme download directory.
I'm very sorry about that and hope that we'll be able the sort this out really quickly.

We have received many questions about Joomla 1.6, 1.7 and beyond, and how these versions slot in with the established 1.5 release of Joomla. Starting with Joomla 1.6, the release process, and in turn how the numbering system works, is changing. Joomla is switching to what is known as Long Term Support (LTS) and Standard Term Support (STS) releases. Joomla 1.5 is an LTS release and support is officially set to have its End of Life (EOL) in April 2012.
Now, what can get confusing is that 1.6 was an STS release and is already set for EOL August 2011. The current STS release is 1.7 and this is now the release the Gantry Framework will support. 1.6 has come and gone, and the upgrade path is 1.6 to 1.7, and you should be updating to this version now. From this point forward we'll not be focusing on Joomla 1.6 at all, and all development will be for the current STS release: Joomla 1.7.
Joomla 1.7 will remain the current STS release until 1.8 is officially launched. According to the tentative roadmap, Joolma 1.8 should be released in January 2012. Joomla 1.8 is going to be the next LTS, and this will effectively replace 1.7 as 1.7 did for 1.6. Shortly after 1.8 is released, 1.7 will be officially EOL'ed in February 2012.
For the next few months The Gantry Framework will continue to support the Joomla 1.5 LTS release, and the current short term release (Joomla 1.7). When Joomla 1.8 LTS is released next year, we'll support the Joomla 1.5 LTS and Joomla 1.8 LTS. Your not alone if you find these changes confusing, and we hope this makes the whole process a little clearer.
