[ This is a test blog, with posts about the development of b2, and comments ]

[ Bugs/suggestions ? Check the Forums ! ]


I'm almost done with the coding of b2 v0.5.2, and I know some of you have been waiting for that new version for a while.
So since I'll be away at my parents' until the 27th for Christmas, I thought I might aswell open v0.5.2 to public testing, and collect the reports once I'm back : ) 
So please go here, register and test that new baby ! If you see any bug or have a request for improvement, please tell me.

The new version features RSS syndication, file/image upload, XML-RPC interface implementing the Blogger API, and lots of performance and customisability fixes.

Note: A 'bug' in XML-RPC Blogger clients makes some of them choke on the blogger.getUsersBlogs method. BlogBuddy doesn't choke when it sees b2 giving him values enclosed between <string> tags, while easyBlog and wapBlogger do. I'll contact the authors about these bugs. In the meanwhile, if you want to use easyBlog, first use blogBuddy to import your blog settings, then copy them from blogbuddy.ini to easyBlog's .ini file.


Oh, I now have a wishlist by the way ; )

The sexy french bitch finally sells his soul.

(a) participation is entirely voluntary and anonymus; and
(b) even a 1 to 500 ratio is good; and
(c) the idea began with a user's request

it's hard to understand your problem with it or how it qualifies as "soul-selling."

If you want to exchange a gift for gift, or contribute hacks, or anything else, you're free to.

If you don't, you're free not to.

Given the amount of unpaid work involved, and all the bullshit when somebody steals B2 every month or so, if somebody wants to throw a CD or book Michel's way, I think they should have that choice.

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 ?
