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.

moo.wp 1.0 arrives

Moo.wp, the mootoolkit manager plug-in for WordPress is now considered stable and acceptable for mass distribution. Build 30, also know as 1.0, now includes moo.dom for DOM support if the prototype.lite library is used. More updates may come with time, but as for now development for moo.wp is completed. Grab 1.0 from the moo.wp page.

moo.wp-r2 is here

Come and get it while it’s hot. The mootoolkit manager for WordPress is available now for per-release testing. Just go on the side bar to Moo.wp to arrive at the plug-in’s page. This release is fully functional and ready for developer integration. For plug-in writers, just check for the moowp_display() function to verify that moowp is installed and working. Release 2, or rather per-release 2 contains moo.fx 1.2.3, moo.fx.pack 1.2.4, moo.AJAX 1.0, prototype.lite, and prototype 1.4.0. On the backend there are idiot-resistant checks that keep dependencies fulfilled to reduce errors. Hopefully this will be helpful for some one out there.
