Announcements The official release version of Geeklog 1.3.10 is now finally available for download. Thanks to everyone who contributed code, ideas, criticism, and time for testing the release candidates.

A quick recap of some of the new features: New default theme (HTML compliant, at last), SpamX plugin included, story archive option, editable story IDs, autolinks, and more.

We hope you'll like it.

For those upgrading from 1.3.10rc3, there were only two changes in system/lib-plugins.php and plugins/staticpages/functions.inc to allow omission of the link text for the built-in autotags (Geeklog will use the object's title automatically then). Also updated were the Chinese language files and some of the documentation.

Reminder: The old stock themes are available as a separate tarball now.

A word on the comment spam that has plagued quite a few Geeklog sites recently: With the inclusion of the SpamX plugin (thanks again to Tom Willet!), tracking of IP addresses of comment posters, and a form to report abusive comments, Geeklog now has quite a nice armory to effectively fight comment spam. And if the comment spammers catch up - which they invariably will - it's easy to fight back by writing new extensions for the SpamX plugin (which can simply be dropped in the SpamX plugin's directory, so you won't have to wait for a new Geeklog release).

Blaine is working on a SpamX-enabled version of the Forum plugin, which already catches forum spam reliably here on geeklog.net.
