Radio 8.1 and the Future
updates to Radio are out–I hope that you all have had a chance to grab
them. By the way the server is responding, I think we have a lot of
folks doing just that.
Many of the items in the
release came from people in the community, pointing out a bug or
feature and offering a solution. That's something I would like to
encourage everyone to do. If you have something that you think will fix
or improve the software, now is the time to step forward.
UserLand has always had a strong community and evidence of that is
scattered throughout this release. UserLand has developed a method to
work with interested members of the Radio community to move the
software forward. We'll be releasing more about that next week.
In The Near Future
will be hosting a theme contest with prizes in a couple of different
categories. We'll also release a standard XHTML structure for themes
allowing a developer/contestant to do everything in CSS.
system upgrades go to beta testers Monday the 4th of October. Send me
an email (steve at userland) if you run Manila-based Radio community
and would like to be included. Comment system changes include the
ability to delete comments and trackbacks, fewer calls to the comments
servers which will mean *faster* responses and *faster* page loading.
Remember: your license has to be current to take advantage of the updates. [house of warwick]
