Development milestone for Geeklog 1.5

The release of Geeklog 1.5.0 Beta 1 by the Geeklog Team marked a new milestone for the open source blogging system. Although the software is still in development, Geeklog's developers hope to release the final version of Geeklog 1.5 on May 26th. The end of May marks the beginning of the coding phase for Google's Summer of Code 2008. To mark the occasion, Geeklog is highlighting the work done by students participating in last year's Summer of Code that is going into this new release. How cool is that!

Changes found in Geeklog 1.5.0 incorporates the following projects implemented during the 2007 Google Summer of Code:

  • New user-friendly install script
  • New Configuration Graphical User Interface
  • New Webservices API based on the Atom Publishing Protocol

Release Candidate for Geeklog 1.4.1 is out

Although I don't use this blogging application, there is something about it's name that has always attracted my attention. Like most blogs today, it can support a variety of features including "comments, trackbacks, multiple syndication formats, spam protection, and all the other vital features of such a system".

The first release candidate for Geeklog 1.4.1 was recently put on board.
