I wasn't able to attend this week, so this is from viewing the video... Please complete this in comments with any additional information you may have if you attended.

  • Orchard 1.5 shipped (well, 1.5.1 shipped since the meeting happened)
  • Deleting drafts: Zoltan has a proposal
  • Removing reliance on session could be a good perf boost, says Piotr.
  • Orchard Harvest Conference: site is online (, will be filled with more info as it becomes available.
  • NH3: the branch exists and can be tested. Allows for massive perf boost thanks to DB caching. Some pages can be rendered with 0 DB queries. Sébastien made a demo.
  • Brendan Carey made a demo of Orchard.Scheduler. Works with rules and cron expressions. Web farm behavior TBD. Code available on
  • Suggestion to make it easier to handle database engines other than SQL Server, such as MySQL was voted for.
  • Orchard 1.6 will be only bug fixes and dependency updates.
  • Localization for 1.5 not yet online.

I have tried the Orchard.Scheduler and the concept and the architecture with in combination with the rules engine is very nice! Keep up the good work!
