17.10.03

Things have been so busy that I almost forgot to mention that a new version of WordPress is available. Upgrading to WordPress from b2 is easy and in addition to all of the great things in the latest release there are plenty of other features already. Development is very active and the first beta of our next release should be available within a week or so.

Download WordPress from Sourceforge.

Shimmer, I believe the private entries are working (as well as private comments).
Custom fields? I'm not too sure.

Word press is well worth the update. I've been using it for several months now, and it's very nice.. I perfer it over the original b2 by far.

Many of your old hacks might work, while others will require new ones... however there are alot of hacks already avaible for wp, so it shouldnt be too much of an issue.

Going to wp is basically just a matter of "upgrading" b2.

Cine: you can always hack up a new template for the admin page. Maybe even use the b2 template, *after* you add all the features that b2 doesn't have.

Me, I'm liking WP a lot.

What is b2 ?
A classy news/weblog tool (aka logware).

How does it work ?
You type something and hit "blog this" and in the next second it's on your page(s). You can write extended entries, or even entries that span multiple pages. You can also use BloggerAPI clients to post to your b2 weblog.
What's original in b2 ? Pages are generated dynamically from the MySQL database, so no clumsy 'rebuilding' is involved. It also means faster search/display capabilities, and the ability to serve your news in different 'templates' without any hassle.

Requirements ?
A server that can run PHP4, and a MySQL database (you can install b2 in an already existing database, and you can put several b2's in one database).

Where can I download it ?
b2 0.6 is the latest public release.
You can also visit the CVS server for the latest code, at your own risks.
See the ReadMe file for requirements and installation instructions.

Contact info ?
E-mail: m@tidakada.com
Forums: over there. :)
