The first (and hopefully, last!) beta version of the forthcoming 0.3 release of pLog has been released. It comes packed with many new features but the most outstanding one is that we have finally added support for uploading and handling files. It is possible to upload any kind of file and let pLog take care of it, extract some useful information about it in case the file is of a "known" type and even generate automatic thumbnails from image files (GD and ImageMagick supported) These files -or resources
as they are called within pLog- can be easily added in a couple of mouse clicks to any post in our pLog in a very easy way, thanks to the integration with the HTMLArea component. You can see more about the new features in this release here
, or follow download the .tar.gz or .tar.bz2 packages from here
Plugins and template sets from the old release won't work properly with this new release. In the case of the plugins, small changes in the way our classes are found has made the old ones incompatible, though easy to fix. In the case of template sets, three new template files have been added in order to show things like albums and resources, so the old ones won't work either. All the old plugins have been updated and put also up for download
, including the old ones and some new ones such as the authentication plugin
, the best posts plugin
and the smileys plugin
. The template sets will be updated to run in 0.3 as soon as we have the time but in the meantime, be sure to check the new default template set!
The old documentation has been removed because it was too old and way too difficult to maintain, and we have set up a wiki
in its place. The documentation is not 100% ready yet but we're planning to have everything by the time the final release is out (perhaps 1-2 weeks) Following the idea of a collaborative web, the wiki is open to anybody to improve, make changes or correct mistakes so please don't be afraid to change anything there. We are counting on you to improve!
Finally, please use the forums
to report any bug, give feedback or make suggestions. Happy blogging!
