Welcome to the development journal

The next version of pLog has already enough functionality to be used as the development journal. That doesn't mean that it's ready!!! To be sincere, I'd actually say the opposite: it is far from 100% ready but we have to show somehow our progress and our product to the people stopping by our project site, and I couldn't really wait any more. I had to show the world what I was working on :)

Along with this first version, comes a new layout. Kind of flashy, I know :) I borrowed it from http://www.bookofstyles.org (check it out!!) because I was a bit tired of the old blueish one that comes by default with the old version... I have to admit it is a bit too flashy for a development site, but while we get a new one ready (there is already somebody working on it), why not demonstrate how easy it is to create a new style? It took me about 10 minutes to separate the template in blocks (header, body and footer) but it actually took me much longer to refine the stylesheet... Hopefully that's not a problem with pLog ;)

The plan is now to use this site to announce new versions, inform about the development status and also to hear your opinion. We'd like to know what you think, your ideas, problems you see with pLog and all that stuff. You know :) File releases and the project forums will still be accessed through the project page at SourceForge.

This first public working release of this development version is not yet available as a file release but instead via CVS. There is a reason for this: if I create a release for this in the project page, people will start downloading this one instead of the older (but stable) one and then we don't feel like getting plenty of bug reports complaining about things which we already know don't work (that is why this is a development version!) People who really know what they're doing and who know how to use CVS, please proceed :) In any case, we might change our mind later on if people are feeling too lazy to use CVS... By the way, I have tagged the version that I am using to type these lines as PLOG_UNSTABLE_20030714, in the plog_devel CVS branch. You have been warned... :)

  1. Comment Not bad...
    Not a bad style, however, I still prefer the old blue color :) I'm thinking from trying the latest CVS version...but we'll see ;)

  2. Comment As you wish
    The old style is still there :) What I wanted to show is that it's quite easy to change... Actually, the only thing I have to change is log into the administrative interface, go to "Blog settings" and change the name of the template back to "default". That's it! :)
    Regarding the CVS version, as I said it does not have yet all the features that the old one has but it [kind of] works. What is missing, though, is maybe a document going through the installation process (haven't got round to that yet but maybe I should...)
