Lately I found myself answering a lot of questions about b2, by e-mail or IM. While I like to help people out the fastest I can, I found out lots of the questions were similar, and make me "lose my time" if I may say, because I have to answer several times to the same enquiries.
If these questions were asked in the Forums, it would take only one thread to reply to a frequently asked question, or a particular problem.

So from now on, I am discontinuating private help, unless you happen to be a very close friend of mine. Sorry about it, but I have to do it. Now if you find my ICQ/AIM/e-mail on the forums, and would like to contact me, do NOT ask support about b2 or you will be ignored, plain and simple. You can still ask how my day is going, or try and get to know me personally if you wish. But do NOT ask for support or e-mail me with "help!!" messages.

There are forums for these questions. Sorry for sounding like a jerk, I am just trying to save everybody's time.

(I hope the people who just e-mailed me, and IMed me, both very rudely, read that post.)

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 ?
