As of today, October 22, 2007, Breadcrumb Navigation XT version 1.9.x is no longer supported or available for general consumption. A month ago Breadcrumb Navigation XT 1.10.0 was released, bringing with it support for WordPress 2.3’s new taxonomy system. This version has been tested and verified to work on WordPress 2.2 installations, and can be safely used by those of you still blogging using that depreciated platform. Look forward to Breadcrumb NavXT 2.0 sometime next month. Additionally, WordPress 2.2 support will no longer be guaranteed in one more month as I develop in a WordPress 2.3 environment.
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.
I installed WordPress 2.0 today, after deleting some important files and having to figure out my database information I finally got it running. I had a temporary ‘Under Construction’ banner up, which is a preview of the skin that I’m working on today. Plan on there being outages later today and possible broken template layout/pages.
I also have this nice little Weblogs.us logo that I made that I’ll share
So this is it, 100% transparent PNG in all of it’s glory. Feel free to use this on your weblogs.us hosted WordPress blog. Leave a comment with your blog URL if you decide to use it, and if you wish to critique it just comment on it as well. Just right click and select ‘Save Image As’. Then select the destination on your computer to save it.
I love the backend improvements of WordPress 2.0. The blogging pane is much better. A lot of AJAX went into it and a really cool thing is that one is able to dynamically resize the size of the blog pane. Plus, the need to preview has been reduced since images and formatting can be automatically be displayed.
Well I was wondering when I’d receive information from the UMN TC. I found a postcard that they sent me a few weeks ago, went online, and checked on my application status. To my surprise (well I knew I’d get accepted, it was just a matter of time), I was greeted with this message:
Congratulations! You have been admitted to the Institute of Technology. A letter was mailed on November 23, 2005 with additional information and your next steps.
So it looks like I’ll be attending the UMN TC next fall. I haven’t received that letter yet though.
