Announcing b2evolution 0.8.0 !

Announcing b2evolution 0.8.0 !

Tonight I upgraded this site to b2evolution 0.8.0.

Okay, this was relatively easy since this site was already running b2evo 0.7.4, but still... everything went smoothly, which is cool! We're one step closer to release! B)

In the next few days I'll be upgrading a couple of other blogs running the original b2 0.6.1. I'll also be activating a few of the new features here! ;) If this, as well as beta testing goes well, we should have a public release in a week or so.

Get ready for the beast! :D

PS: if you want to participate in the upcomming beta test, please join the group!

Quote of the day

Accord SAP/mySQL

SAP décide de confier sa base de données à MySQL pour se recentrer sur son coeur de métier: les ERP (R/3).

La base de données SAP-DB, quant à elle, semblerait avoir plus ou moins vocation à passer en open-source et à fusionner avec mySQL. L'objectif serait même d'aller titiller les seniors: Oracle, SQL-Server, DB/2 et Sybase. :!:

=> Voilà qui ne pourra probablement que faire du bien à mySQL... parce que pour l'instant il est loin de boxer dans la même catégorie! :>>

God I love sundays!

Woops I first spelled it sundaes! :. And that was correct too! :))

Actually, the cool thing about sundays is that the day before is saurday... and that gives beta testers a lot of time to test b2evolution!

I sure wasn't expecting that much positive response from all over the world today! :yes:

This is really nice! B) Thank you all for your support. I'm working on rolling out a release ASAP! ;)

Debugging pingback

Sometimes I think debugging pingback is the greatest pain... ever! XX(

[Please excuse for this disguised live test ;D]

Actually, there is in XMLRPC for PHP there is this cool xmlrpc_client.setDebug() method that helps a lot. I thought that would make my day for a while.... That was until I realized I had just spent half of the day debugging two bugs in the b2 pingback implementation! >:-(

This would have been far more efficient if the original developper for this (Mort) had finished the debugging in the first place... and this is precisely why I'm not rushing my own b2evolution out before I iron out as many quirks as I can! B)
