Busy Weeks

The past two weeks have, to say the least, interesting. By next month, development on WP Trainer will begin. At that time, a quick update with more enhancements to Berry will occur. This includes fixing up the code section of this blog, and updating Moo.WP (mainly as it is a dependency for WP Trainer). Due to demand, watch out for a full-fledged Aptana installation on Gentoo Linux guide, with pictures. Along with the guide the SVG sources to the Aptana logo in the Tango color scheme will be released as the developers still have not made a SVG (or transparent PNG for that matter) logo readily available.

Something Fresh, Coming Soon

Yep, it is launch time; stay tuned for a band-new weblogs.us website. New features include a automated sign-up queue form, automated Recently Updated Blogs section, an official Weblogs.us blog, a automated testimonials section, a new “web 2.0” design with logo, and some AJAX magic. Contrary to popular belief, this is not the final revision. Something much better is coming this spring; simply put the next launch will introduce a new platform based on WordPress.

Moo.WP Renamed

Beginning next week (hopefully), moo.wp will be archived and a new release will present itself. As of this new release moo.wp will now be known and WP-JStoolkit. This coincides with the restructuring of the moo.fx family into mootools. New features other than containing the modular mootools, will include a wp-jstoolkit.js which is editable from the admin panel. What mootools brings to the table now is a completely modular, and lightweight javascript toolkit. In previous versions of moo.fx and family, there was a dependency on prototype or prototype.lite, now mootools is completely independent of prototype, but can accept prototype style commands to retain backward compatibility. Previously when moo.wp was released, mootools was still having some compatibility issues, now it seems to be fully functional, and therefore warrants inclusion.

We’re Back

Weblogs.us just went through a major server upgrade, which now should result in less downtime. The new website isn’t ready yet, as I need to figure out the WordPress XML-RPC API, and until then I can’t complete RPC-heir, the XML-RPC recently updated blogs plug-in. Look out for some updates in October, with several plug-in releases, and the launch of the new Weblogs.us homepage.
