On a notebook I devised some new XMLRPC methods for b2, that would make more stuff possible, like adding/renaming/deleting categories, listing comments and commenting from another website, etc.
These should be part of the b2 API soon when I have actually implemented them, but I have a bigger idea for them: I'll contact other authors of weblog tools to see if we can come up with a discussion over a standard Weblog API for all our tools, so there wouldn't be specific b2, MoveableType, DruPal, etc kinds of clients, but just one Weblog kind of client for all. A bit like the Blogger API, but with a lot more features, to cater with tools that use titles, categories, comments, and other such things that the Blogger API doesn't cover.

In the meanwhile, I'll be offline for a few days again, and then only will I get back to working on b2.

Happy New Year !

honestly, this doesn't make sense to me. but i don't get what you mean either : D 

are you saying that you want to form a group to make an api that makes standard methods for everyone? you might be tempted to make an opensource bundle of xml-rpc methods and release it yourself (since you have the code already). heh. heh.

Ian, XML-RPC methods aren't really code. They are just guidelines, and allow for many ways to implement them. For example you can see the Blogger API there, which doesn't show any code except XML call and response. Up to Ev to code the ASP for it, to the Trotts (for example) to code the Perl, to me to code the PHP, etc
The goal would be to have such an API, but extended and standard to all weblog tools (that Blogger could support too).

what i meant was you could use your own PHP code on the methods to create the API itself and await the ports.

anyway, 20 seconds after i put in that comment, i realised that xml-rpc are just lines of xml code fed to servers. heh.

most of all, it wouldn't be *very* appealing for any one of them to do participate anyway, other than the fact that clients can support different blogging software. and clients have different features.

but with most blogging scripts supporting the same features, one might think it's more useful not to have to code a client for each and every one of them : )

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.
