Not releasing yet, but still…

I’d want to include much more in what will become the next release, but I wasn’t not satisfied with the results.

Anyway, here’s what’s in, currently:

  • The new draft system
  • Fixes and improvements in the index backend
  • Full PHP5.3 compliance (it should still be working with PHP4.3, though, but I suggest to upgrade)
  • Comment editing
  • New config panels for many plugins, such as BBCode, quick antispam, etc.

If you’re looking forward to try all of this stuff, just get the tarball archive from the link at the bottom of the SF page .

I, for one, I’ve upgraded yesterday to SVN my personal blog and everything seems to be working fine :)

I’m leaving for holidays on Monday (my last exam went really well, if you’re interested :) ), so I won’t release an official package, because I wouldn’t be able to help you by fixing bugs during this summer break; but, please, feel free to test it!

Have fun, relax, and we’ll see again when I’m back.

Hugs :)

PHP 5.3

In PHP 5.3 they deprecated a lot of the PHP4 compatibility (since PHP4 is now actually dead).

Unfortunately this means the sourceforge package out at the moment won’t work with this version.

Even though I have a private life, I’m studying for my last exam of the month, and then I’m finally leaving for the summer break (during which I’ll probably be studying for a bunch of other exams!), I have committed a temporary fix to SVN :)

If you like living on the bleeding edge, you can get a download from the usual place (click the “Download GNU tarball” link at the very bottom of the page), or sync your local SVN repository.

If you don’t feel like upgrading to the unstable SVN, here’s a temporary workaround for your own installation.

  1. Open the file fp-includes/core/core.entry.php
  2. on line 22 change
    parent::caching_SBPT(

    to

    parent::__construct(

    and save

  3. Then let’s now suppress all the deprecations warnings, by killing the errors altogether (I know, this is ugly): go open defaults.php
  4. add this code
    function _dummy(){} set_error_handler('_dummy');

Bye!
