Realizing that BLOG doesn't get all of Fahim's creative juices, I don't come to the forum often to salivate for new releases...
But, I came today and checked out the latest postings and noticed in the long "bugs" thread that there was some promising banter about the latest build and how this
had been fixed and that
was still a problem, etc.
Well, I high-tailed it to download the latest version: Beta 8 build 55.
(a quick note - when the installer asks to backup and you say "yes", he takes you to the back up directory that you currently use for BLOG. But, he assumes that this is the directory that he will find all the ".DAT" files in. If this is NOT the case, then he errors-off and sits and spins forever until you cancel him. I keep my backups elsewhere so this caused a minor confusion with my upgrade.
Anyway, no major cosmetic changes but some new fuctionality that I don't understand and don't see documented. I see in the editor window a new tab called EXTRA which has two editing panes in it. Where can I find out how to use this new tab...i.e. it's intended purpose?
Also, in the README, I see mention of this XMLRPC API. Where can I find out how to exploit this functionality of BLOG which gives Blog the ability to post and retrieve from server-based blogging tools that support XMLRPC APIs?
Finally, will "about" version numbers (7.905) ever match Beta build version references elsewhere (Blog80Beta55setup.exe)? Gets confusing...
Thanks for a great tool!
