Version 5.0.1

Contents

• Thanks
• Repairs
• Usability

This release fixes several defects.

1 Thanks

Josef ‘Jupp’ Schugt reported several defects.

2 Repairs

• X11 color names have been replaced by their
corresponding hex codes in the input/styles/default.css
file because, as Josef ‘Jupp’ Schugt reports, “some
browsers may ignore them altogether or, even worse,
misinterpret them”.

• The content of

  and  tags is now
properly protected and escaped as HTML by the
String.to_html method in config/format.rb.

• Simplified the code that performs shell escaping.

3 Usability

• An entry’s information (date, tags, and comment link)
is now shown in index pages by default because, as
Josef ‘Jupp’ Schugt reports, that is what people have
come to expect in a blog interface.

• Revised the instructions presented atop the search
page.
