Awasu 2.2.1.alpha2

IMPORTANT: This is an alpha release (what's this?). Some features are not complete and you will find bugs!

You must be already running 2.2.1.alpha1.

To install:

LATE-BREAKING BUG: This alpha has problems with synchronization. If you use this feature, you should not install this release.


Atom 1.0

Awasu now fully supports Atom 1.0.

And now we have a syndication format that lets publishers unambiguously identify content as plain-text or HTML, the rest of Awasu has been updated to recognize this correctly. In particular, the channel summary pages and reports now show the correct thing for Atom 1.0 content, and do much better for RSS content where it is ambiguous what anything actually is :-(


Templates and metadata

The template processor has gone through a major upgrade. Firstly, it now checks if the content it inserts into the templates is plain-text or HTML and intelligently encodes it according to the type of output file (e.g. .TXT, .XML, .HTML, etc.).

Secondly, new template tags have also been added to allow content to be conditionally included in the output. This means less reliance on Awasu to generate certain bits of HTML content since it can now be dynamically included in the template file.

All the template files have been rewritten to take advantage of these new features. If you have written your own templates, the old tags are still supported but deprecated and will be removed in a later release.
