Blog / Release Candidate out

Release Candidate out


Please guys sorry if I’m not posting a changelog but I’m quite tired, and I’ve packaged all quickly so do a backup first, as usual (read the previous post ;))

If you don’t see any bug this will probably become final

EDIT: as you asked, here’s a CHANGELOG :)

note: in the meantime someone found another small bug in bbcode which I have fixed, if you already donwloaded, download it again, or fix it yourself

plugin.bbcode.php, line 128, becomes:


Sorry for making you wait but yesterday I didn’t really have time :)

FIXED: plugin/bbcode: broken non-local urls 
FIXED: core/FPDB archive function: /?y=nn didn't work if a month wasn't specified
FIXED: core/entry/cache : buggy workarounded function (see previous) is now fixed
FIXED: core/users : session was not kept if user IP changed
FIXED: core/rss : template now works, fixed core accordingly
ADDED: core/rss : full content support
UPDATED: plugin/jsUtils, upgraded to mootools 1.1
UPDATED: plugin/lightbox updated accordingly to slimbox 1.4
RMVD:	temporarily removed prettyurls plugin 
	(todo: remove from default config); 
	I'm working to a newer cooler version, but 
	it will require probably some changes in core, so no-go for this
ADDED: Lang/it-it: added some strings I forgot

As for the language, you can see what strings changed doing a diff between dirs lang/en-us/ across versions.

I’ll post one too, if you don’t want to wait just do it yourself ;)

Yeah, I know, I should really move to SVN, sharing files across PCs is really a mess -__-

    SoWWy mate :P

    I’ve been studying for my OS exam for the whole day and I couldn’t make it :/ btw, as you can see I’ve posted about the whole list of changes…

    I fix so many things that usually I fail to keep track of them -__-

    Yeah, I should really move to SVN. I know. Shame on me.


    As for the forum… :/ I was waiting to open one until I didn’t go final, but I think time may have come… well, stay tuned

    PS: What forum script would you suggest?

    SimpleMachinesForum system is the best. It has a variety of plugins as well.

    Hi Edoardo,

    i would suggest phpBB ( to you.
    It’s open-source, xhtml true, and what i use: rss-feeds!

    Nice regards,

    @Embrance : I used to like SMF as well but I don’t like its license, it’s not FLOSS, it may be considered freeware, but not really free/open-source (IMHO)

    @Tonicwater : I’m still not sure about phpBB, it is known to be quite buggy; I assume you’re thinking about phpBB3, because phpBB2 does not validates (and doesn’t have feeds IIRC); that may be a choice… but I don’t know

    Vanilla is also good & unique.

    I like Vanilla as wel but I’m not too sure about its categorizing system; I mean, I like it as it is, but I think that while it would be great for a general discussion group it may not be as good as an old styled bulletin board for a software project.

    BTW I might change my mind :)
