LSblog 0.8 released

I’ve finally bothered to tar up the latest snapshot of LSblog, everyone’s favorite completely database-driven blogging package, which I’m calling 0.8. New features since 0.7.1:

  • The Atom 0.3 syndication format is now supported.
  • Automatic generation of FOAF data for the weblog.
  • Customizeable post excerpts for syndication and trackbacks.
  • Improved administration interface, including tracking of sent trackback pings (to avoid duplicates) and management of inbound trackbacks.
  • LSblog now serves XHTML 1.0 throughout.

You can download the latest release here. The main requirements are Python 2.2.2 or 2.3; PostgreSQL 7.3 or 7.4; and the psycopg database adaptor.
