WordPress 1.0.2
WordPress [1] version 1.0.2 is now available for download [2]. This is a bugfix release and fixes all known issues with the 1.0 series.

The upcoming version of WordPress (available in nightly builds [3]) has sub-categories, advanced comment moderation, automatic image thumbnailing, and custom fields. All implemented with the elegance you've come to expect from WordPress. I'll post more about 1.2 when it's finished.

WordPress 1.0.1
I just wanted to let everyone know that the latest and greatest WordPress [1] is now out. WordPress 1.0.1 [2] takes all the amazing features of 1.0 [3] (including real search-engine friendly permalinks, multiple categories, trackback on edit, comment moderation, and more) and fixes all the bugs and makes it faster.

If you're feeling adventurous the nightly builds of version 1.1 has sub-categories and a few other improvements underway.

site policy on comment spam
As you may know, spammers have started to invade blog comments, and this site has seen its share of it.
While many developers are working on ways to prevent comment spam [1] (I know there's some serious work going on on the WordPress [2] side, and other blog tools seem to get solutions aswell), and until I can apply one of these automated ways on cafelog.com, I will have to silently check the comments and delete the spam, as I have done these past two months.

So here's the policy:
If your comment definitely is spam, it is deleted.If it looks or feels like spam, it is deleted.
I don't care if your URL just happens to be cheap-ass-stuff.com or wowlookatgirlz.nu: if your comment is on topic but your URL leads to a site with a crappy URL and the site aims to sell something dodgy, tough luck. You should have commented without an URL, that's all: cafelog.com is not an advertising billboard.If your comment is on a very old post, I may just delete it on sight. If it was a genuine on topic comment, blame yourself for commenting a post that no one is going to visit anymore, instead of bringing the issue on the support forums [3].If your comment is a flame/insult, it is deleted.
This is not censorship, it's just keeping the spam out. So if you commented, and you don't see your comment anymore, you know what happened.

Fortunately, if you read and understood this post you are not likely to be affected by this policy. ;)

NewsGator releases b2 plugin
NewsGator Technologies [1], makers of a great news aggregator for Outlook, released a posting plug-in for b2 [2], allowing NewsGator users to post directly to b2 from Outlook. Titles and categories are supported.
If you are a NewsGator+b2 user, you can download the plugin on their website [3] (it should also work with WordPress, b2evolution, b2++, or any b2-based blogware). :)

Note: This is a late post on my part, I'm sorry about it: the email about it had gotten shot as a false-positive by the spam filter -- proof that you should always check for false-positives in your email client!

New Version of WordPress - 0.72
Things have been so busy that I almost forgot to mention that a new version of WordPress is available [1]. Upgrading to WordPress from b2 is easy and in addition to all of the great things in the latest release there are plenty of other features already [2]. Development is very active and the first beta of our next release should be available within a week or so.

Download WordPress from Sourceforge [3].

b2 Security Fix Available
Hello everyone. As some of you may be aware, a SQL injection vulnerability was reported and fixed in WordPress [1]. As the same vulnerability effects all recent versions of b2, Michel asked me to put together a release for people who weren't ready to upgrade to WordPress yet and were still using b2. So b2 version 0.6.2.2 is available [2]. The only change from the previous version is in blog.header.php where the vulnerable code was located. Thanks to Seth Woolley [3] for reporting this issue responsibly. Be safe and upgrade as soon as possible.
