Version 4.0.0


  • Caution
  • Repairs
  • Usability

This release improves usability and XHTML validity,
resolves some inconsistencies, and comes with a more
permissive license.

1   Caution

  • The String.table_of_contents method no longer accepts

  • The input/images/mozilla/feed-icon.png file is now
    located at input/images/feed-icon-28x28.png.

  • The String.table_of_contents method no longer appears
    in the config/format.rb file because it has been
    incorporated into the core of Rassmalog.

  • Rassmalog is now developed under a more permissive
    license that better reflects my ethical beliefs than
    the previous license.

2   Repairs

  • XHTML anchors, generated for section headings and the
    table of contents, are now valid. They also preserve
    non-ASCII characters, so Unicode text is fully

  • The name and menu parameters from config/blog.yaml are
    now processed by String.to_html when generating HTML.
    As a result, you can now use Textile (or whatever
    formatting scheme your String.to_html method supports)
    markup in those parameters’ values.

  • The copy task no longer creates redundant
    subdirectories in output/ when the destination already

3   Usability

  • Just as a link in the table of contents takes you
    directly to a section, a section numbers now takes you
    directly to its associated link in the table of

    In the past, all section numbers took you to the head
    of the table of contents, which was not very useful
    when the table of contents was long.

  • The end of an entry’s text is now clearly marked by a
    thick black bar.
