LnBlog 0.9.0 is finalized
There are a lot of new features in this version. You read a somewhat more thoughtful discussion of them in the beta 1 announcement. In this post, I'll just give the quickie list.
- Most data files are now XML. Old formats are still supported (no need to convert).
- Support for running blogs on multiple subdomains from a single installation.
- Consolidated the per-blog PHP wrapper scripts.
- Support for saving draft entries to be published later.
- New Linksleeve anti-spam plugin.
- Improved support for blogging APIs, including support for the MoveableType API.
- Reply management pages for bulk listing/deleting of replies.
- Improvements (?) to file writing configuration.
To upgrade from a previous release, follow the usual procedure:
- Make backup copies of each of your blogs, just to be safe.
- Rename your old LnBlog directory on the server.
- Upload the new LnBlog in its place.
- Copy your old LnBlog/userdata directory into the new LnBlog directory, overwriting the existing files.
- Log into the administration page and run an upgrade on each of your blogs.
As an additional note, the URLs for XMLRPC-based services has changed. LnBlog has adopted the Wordpress style and just consolidated them all (APIs, Pingbacks, etc.) in a single xmlrpc.php script located in the root LnBlog directory. If you want to use a blogging client that supports the Blogger 1.0, MetaWeblog, or MovableType API, you should point it to that file.
It's late and that's about all I can think of for now. As usual, feel free to pass on any comments, suggestions, feature requests, or bug reports. You can e-mail me, leave a comment, or use the SourceForge issue tracker or forums.
