Version 1.9 sees major improvements to the overall functionality and stablebility, but most notably in the archiving code. Major flaws in the archiving code have been addressed. I've added a new command line option to accompany the new blog configuration file and renamed the $PARTS_DIR directory from "clippings" to "parts". This way there's no sugar-coating or confusion to the contents of $PARTS_DIR directory. The $PARTS_DIR is made up from actual parts of the blog, so they really shouldn't be manipulated. At the same time, I find the parts useful for inclusion to some of my other personal sites that use a little PHP and I believe that others may too. I might still reference them as "clippings" in the documentation, as I happen to like the term better, but I decided that the old name was a little to ambigious. The last addition made was the variable $BLOG_CONTACT to the config file and a side-link, called "Contact", to the templates. This version was also tested on Mac OS X Jaguar with the default Bash shell environment. When possible I try to rely on the shell instead of external commands for the sake of portability. I think it would be really cool to be able to run this script on almost any unix environment that includes Bash, but I can't possibly test NanoBlogger against all the different unix environments, I just happen to own an ibook with a copy of Mac OS X. Anyways I think I ranted long enough. Cheers and happy 4th of July!
