[ Bugs/suggestions ? Check the Forums ! ]


Lately I've seen a lot of hits coming from pages that talk about a security flaw in b2.
If you came here from one of these pages, here I tell you this bug has been fixed in the release version... in early May. And I even announced that bug etc (if you look down, it's just two posts below this one).

So now, if everyone could just stop submitting that same bug to every ****ing security sites on the 'net, it would be cool: it's a FIXED bug, for Christ's sake.

Incidentally, I've been working on CaféLog 1.0, from the b2 codebase and I'm not happy of the results; so I may rewrite the whole thing, for a whole lot of purposes: compatibility with PHP 4.2.0 even without register_globals on, Smarty templating (possibly even make the interface templatable), post-via-email, database-abstraction, and all sorts of goodies. There may be a pre-version available in July if I code fast, and then a finished code by September (I'm taking August off for travelling !). Don't consider these release dates as promises though.
When I can, I'll reduce some of the new features as 'hacks' for b2 in the forums (especially the post-via-email interface, which isn't released yet because of a weird bug with Outlook-generated emails).

About the lack of support, email replies, and updates: I'm losing my job by the end of July because the place closes doors, so I'm very busy with searching another one... (anyone could hire a french PHP coder ? pretty please ^_^ ? I don't bite !)

Also if the Sourceforge account is up (yes, it is!) we programmers could help coding some of the stuff. Of course you would have to teach me on how to use Sourceforge, hehe.

SourceForge account is up. I have yet to move everything over there though, because I'm still battling with the Windows-based CVS tools and I can't get any of them to work -_-

If you're going to travel to Sweden by any chance, my home is yours! =)

Good luck with finding a new job! I think that even if you were half as talented as you are, finding a job would be easy! =)

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. :)
