PyBlosxom status: 07/25/2005

Note: This is an old post in a blog with a lot of posts. The world has changed, technologies have changed, and I've changed. It's likely this is out of date and not representative. Let me know if you think this is something that needs updating.

I implemented Matt Weber's idea to show comments when bl_type = "file" instead of depending on a "showcomments=yes" in the querystring. I didn't remove the checking for "showcomments=yes", however--I figure having both covers all our bases. This fixes the ramifications of a poor decision on my part.

I made some changes to the debug renderer to make it easier to use. It now sorts the keys for mappings and prints the keys in blue. It's much easier to read now.

I submitted a bug report on the PyBlosxom package based on an email I got from Ted from Dave from Zack. I posted a security issue on the PyBlosxom web-site to notify users. I also forwarded the issue to the pyblosxom-users mailing list. Hopefully the news will filter down to all the people that need it.

I'm going to do some more PyBlosxom work over the next week. I want to merge some functionality in from plugins into the core. I first need to merge all the changes I've done on 1.2 back into main branch. Then I'll do the work in main and create a 1.3 branch when I release 1.3. If there are any features people are itching for, now's the time to let me know. Anything I don't plan on working on, I'll toss on a web-page on the web-site so everyone can see the wishlist and the status of where things are. It's interesting to note that the wishlist and a todo list are themselves in the wishlist and todo lists.
