Geeklog 1.8.0rc1

Announcements

The first Release Candidate for Geeklog 1.8.0 is now available for download.

This version fixes the problem with OAuth and OpenID users being logged out after 2 minutes. Users which log in via Facebook or LinkedIn OAuth now also get their full name as their Geeklog username instead of the number / string of random characters that were used before (Twitter OAuth was not affected and continues to use the Twitter username).

Please try out this version and help us track down any remaining issues. Thank you.

Geeklog 1.8.0 BETA 2

Announcements

The second beta version of Geeklog 1.8.0 is now available for download and has also been installed here on geeklog.net for you to try it out.

The new features have already been documented elsewhere, but the most visible ones are those "Login with Facebook" and "Login with Twitter" buttons. So if you are using one of those services, you can now use your Facebook or Twitter credentials to log into geeklog.net (and, potentially, any other Geeklog site, if the site admin enables it).

As for changes since the first beta - there were quite a few of them, actually. Quite a few things had to be tweaked, including the theme and the language files, so we decided that a second beta was necessary before we move on to release candidates. And for that, we need your help!

Geeklog 1.8.0 BETA 1

Announcements

The first beta version of Geeklog 1.8.0 is now available for download. As announced, this version now requires PHP 5.2.0 or later.

New feature in this version include:

  • Improved Configuration, which was the Google Summer of Code project of Akeda Bagus from 2010. Improvements include a search function and input validation as well as an updated look.
  • OAuth Support, allowing users to log into a Geeklog site with their Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn account, developed by Hiroshi Sakuramoto of Geeklog Japan.

... as well as a lot of other improvements, e.g. new icons, tweaks in the user interface, and the inclusion of jQuery.

We would like to encourage you to download this beta version, try it out, and give us your feedback. Since this is a beta version, it may still contain bugs, so you may want to wait before actually running it on a "live" site. We will keep rolling out updates over the next weeks, though, and still plan to ship the final version later this month.
