WadcomBlog 0.3 Released

Jul 05 2008, 13:15 permalink

I've just released WadcomBlog 0.3. The major change in this version is getting rid of a notion of category (which you might have already noticed by looking at my blog).

The articles are now installed in date-based paths (look at the URL for this very entry for example). I haven't yet got around to implement a "calendar view", e.g. an index listing all entries posted for a specific day, month, or year.

Since previously the "permanent links" were based on category names, it turns out that they were not that, eh, permanent. :-) I've included a script to facilitate generation of redirects (Apache .htaccess files).

There is also a new feature called "mandatory user-defined headers" which basically means that now you can have custom headers in your entry headers which are checked for existense on output generation. (Previously you also could add whatever you liked to the entry header, but WadcomBlog didn't care about that.) Ah, and these values are available from the template, of course.

The release also includes a few minor bugfixes and features (see ChangeLog ).
