[ANN] blogc-0.17.0

I just released version 0.17.0 of blogc.

This release includes the following changes:

  • blogc(1) now supports sorting source files by DATE variable, by providing the FILTER_SORT=1 global variable. The source files are sorted in descending order by default, and can be reversed by providing the FILTER_REVERSE=1 global variable. See blogc-pagination(7) for details.
  • blogc-make(1) got a new setting to support sorting posts: posts_sort. See blogcfile(5) for details.

[ANN] blogc-0.16.1

I just released version 0.16.1 of blogc.

This is a bug fix release for blogc-make(1), with the following changes:

  • blogc-make(1) was implementing atom feeds wrong for long time. Atom IDs are supposed to be valid URIs. This is a small but breaking change. It is supposed to make some clients think that all of the old posts were republished. The public aggregators using my blogs' feeds do not republished anything, though.
  • atom_legacy_entry_id isn't supported by blogcfile(5) anymore. There's no point in officially supporting broken IDs. If you need it, please run the same command provided before.

This release is only relevant for users relying on blogc-make(1) AND using default atom feed templates. Users with custom atom templates may also want to make sure that their feeds are valid, though.

Users wanting to make sure that this release won't change their feeds, can run the following command before upgrading (it assumes that templates are stored in templates/ and that is using the default internal atom template):

$ blogc-make atom_dump > templates/atom.tmpl

and add atom_template = atom.tmpl to [settings] in your blogcfile(5).

Please keep in mind that when using the old feed template your atom IDs are invalid.

[ANN] blogc-0.16.0

I just released version 0.16.0 of blogc.

This release includes the following changes:

  • Added new template block listing_entry, to include the content of a source file on a listing page. This is useful if the user wants to have an index page with posts listing and some content together. See blogc(1) (description of -e option) and blogc-template(7) for details.
  • Adapted blogc-make(1) to support the new listing_entry block. See blogcfile(5) for details.
  • Changed blogc(1) -p option to be able to retrieve values from entries, instead of just listings. Any variables that can be used in templates are available, including CONTENT, that contains the HTML generated from the source file.
