Version 11.0.0

Contents

• Thanks
• Caution
• Improvements
â–¡ Usability
• Repairs

This release removes needless cruft (keep it simple!), adds
new plugins, adds support for Ruby 1.9.0, freshens the
default CSS theme, fixes translation files, and updates the
documentation.

1 Thanks

• Aggelos Orfanakos contributed fixes for the Greek
language translation file.

• Josef ‘Jupp’ Schugt suggested the Lazy Blogging
feature.

• Greg Weber suggested creating an official preview task
and contributed a HTML validation plugin (plugins/
validate.rb).

2 Caution

• Trailing dashes are now correctly removed from
generated file names (the result of String#
to_file_name). As a result, you may need to update
hyperlinks to blog entries generated with a previous
version of Rassmalog.

• The entire config/entry.erb template is no longer
rendered inside the RSS feed. Instead, only the text of
the entry (and a “read more” link, if necessary) are
rendered.

• The search page no longer has a JavaScript-based search
implementation. Instead, visitors are urged to use
their browser’s built-in search mechanism, which is far
superior to what is possible with JavaScript.

3 Improvements

• Added the plugins/new.rb plugin which provides a Rake
task for easily creating new blog entry source files.
See the documentation for more information.

• Added an official preview task which continuously
generates the blog while you write your blog entries.

• Added documentation about plugin usage, creating
mulitple RSS feeds, and the preview task to the user
guide.

3.1 Usability

• Added an “all entries” link (in between the older/newer
navigation links for a blog entry) which takes you to
the corresponding place in the list of all entries.
This allows users to access nearby entries without fear
of having to scroll through the gigantic “all entries”
list, just to return to where they were a few pages
ago!

• Enhanced the default CSS style by providing more visual
clues about the navigation menu, document structure,
and page layout.

4 Repairs

• Fixed several Ruby warnings and added support for Ruby
1.9.0

I created a new (very small) release:

Version 11.0.1

This release fixes some XHTML validation issues.

Thanks.
