I updated both the v0.5 release file and the nightly one, with quick fixes: there was a bug that displayed mailto:$admin_email instead of the actual email address, and there's the new installer file in v0.5 so the error would be clear when you can't install (the original installer would just skip displaying an error if it can't connect, leading to a confusing "can't create 'post' table" that didn't help at all).
Also, I made a Zip file of the nightly, so you can unzip it if you can't handle the tar.gz one. It's there.

hrm.. why dont you make the post/edit box bigger? are you planning on putting something else to the side of it? because if you arent i think you should make the box stretch across the screen. there is no point in compacting things unless we have to, right?

by the way, winrar which is a windows program caz unzip tar's zips' etc.. pretty much any type of compression there is can be uncompressed by it. You should link it here so that you would only have to put out one release of each zip file =]

Michel, is the upgrading process the same as it's stated in the readme.html in this new zip? If it is, then I will try to do the upgrading myself. Unless I encounter problems, or I shall not trouble you again.

to Maz: I personally don't like it to fit the width of the window, mostly because I feel for high-res users, but in the future there should be something in the Options to change the layout of the interface (colors, size of tables...).
WinRar and WinZip are supposed to open tar.gz files, but not everyone has the latest versions, this is why I put a Zip version up too.

to Shaoqi: no, the upgrading process is tougher than just replacing the files. There are changes in the template engine so some tags would output errors if you don't conform to the new way. Wait and I'll update your template in the same time I update your b2 distro, or wait for me to post a message about the differences between 0.5 and 0.5.1

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. :)
