"Instead of a trap door, what about a trap window? The guy looks out it, and if he leans too far, he falls out. Wait. I guess that's like a regular window."

- Jack Handy, Deep Thoughts
Bloo Beta 2 Released (Version 1.00.b.002)

Bloo Beta 2 has been released! You can download it here.

Here are the highlights:

  • Refactored the loading of SnapOns, and unified their format. Now everything in Bloo follows a common SnapOn format, whether for core SnapOns, extension SnapOns, or theme SnapOns.
  • Optimized the loading of SnapOns so that the system only loads the resources it needs, rather than loading everything
  • Implemented the CTCode extension SnapOn. This is a spam checker that is quite effective against both trackback and comment spam, and that doesn't require the commenter to answer questions, type kaptchas, etc.
  • Improved the administrative interface
  • Created the Bloo Wiki SnapOn, which gives a blog certain Wiki-ish features (such as allowing the author to enclose post titles in [[ ]] brackets, which converts the entry into a link to that post title. Note: this SnapOn is not part of the core release. It will be deployed eventually on the main bloo documentation site (http://outofthebloo.com) soon.
  • Created the ThemeDownload SnapOn, which allows the administrator to place Theme Download links on the blog which will contain the zipped code for the current theme. Note: this SnapOn is not part of the core release. It will be deployed eventually on the main bloo documentation site (http://outofthebloo.com) soon.
  • Created "pend" type overlays, which will autmatically append or prepend themselves to specified overlays. Very handy for extending the Bloo interface.
  • Improved the Comments interface
  • Added Theme Screenshots to the administrative interface for Themes
  • Improved the Theme administration panel
  • Implemented Session messages, to provide a common facility for displaying information and warnings.
  • Cleaned up and upgraded the Quicktags buttons, and added Quicktags to the comments form (optional)
  • Added extension SnapOns that protect the user from losing unsaved changes to posts or comments if an errant back or close button is pressed.
  • Added better security checks to prevent the unauthorized loading of a SnapOn.
  • Added new themes: Lush, Jill, Quentin, Monochrome.
  • Now administrators can associate a blog logo image to their blog.
  • Theme Credits now can appear at the bottom of the main page
  • Fixed general problems with the RSS interface
  • Fixed the problem with Smilies not displaying properly in edited posts and comments.
  • Fixed the problem with the PopularPosts extension SnapOn that had it counting removed spam comments in the total comments count.
  • And performed a lot more behind the scenes enhancements and fixes.
