Many of you will know Groklaw, if only back from the days of their role in the epic battle against SCO and their litigation against Linux. Groklaw was also the biggest (in terms of users) Geeklog site out there.

"Was", unfortunately, because PJ has decided that, effective immediately, the site will no longer be operating.

The owner of Lavabit tells us that he's stopped using email and if we knew what he knew, we'd stop too.

There is no way to do Groklaw without email. Therein lies the conundrum.
(...)
So this is the last Groklaw article. I won't turn on comments. Thank you for all you've done. I will never forget you and our work together. I hope you'll remember me too.

Thanks, PJ and the Groklaw community for all you have done for Open Source in general and Geeklog in particular. We will sure remember you all!

For the rest of us, maybe it's time we think about the recent events and disclosures and what can be done about them, as they seem to start to be doing more harm than good.

There are a number of new features and fixes with this version of Geeklog. These include:

  • Improved strength of password hashing
  • Allow Topics to have child Topics
  • Allow Articles, Blocks and other Plugin objects to be associated with more than one Topic
  • Topic Breadcrumb support
  • Emergency Rescue Tool is included with the Geeklog Install
  • Added support for MySQLi

  • A new theme called Denim which is based on Responsive Web Design

  • Twitter OAuth API updated
  • HTML 5 DOCTYPE

Please note: With Geeklog 2.0.0 plugins that install and/or access blocks, or access article topics, most likely will be not compatible. If you use any plugins that perform these functions please check with the plugin developer to make sure they are compatible before upgrading Geeklog. If you are not sure about 1 or more plugins and still wish to upgrade your Geeklog website then either disable the plugin(s) or uninstall it. All Core plugins have been updated and support Geeklog 2.0.0

Developers, please read more below to find out what has changed or is new in Geeklog that may affect development of themes and plugins.

The third release candidate of Geeklog version 2.0.0 is now available for download. For the full list of bug fixes found in Geeklog 2.0.0rc3 please read the included change log found in the docs directory of the download.

We expect that this release candidate will be the last one before the final Geeklog 2.0.0 release. If you have a chance please test this release on a non-production site. If you find any bugs, you can add them to the Geeklog Bugtracker. If all goes smoothly we hope the final version of Geeklog 2.0.0 to be released by the end of March.

As always we welcome new and updated translations. If you speak a language other than English and you would like to help out the Geeklog community, translations are a great place to start.
