Version 3.2.0

This release improves usability and simplifies the blog’s

1   Features

  • Tags and archives now use the tag cloud visualization

      â–¡ You can configure the cloud generation in the
        config/chapter.erb template.

  • A config/index.erb template has been added for
    customization of generated index*.html files.

      â–¡ The search page now explicitly states that it is
        really just an exhaustive listing of the content of
        all entries available on the blog.

2   Usability

  • Jakob Nielsen’s guidelines for web design are now

  • Added horizontal rules (<hr/>) to improve readability
    in text-mode browsers.

3   Mechanics

  • Entry summarization is now the responsibility of the
    config/entry.erb template.

      â–¡ When entries are summarized, their meta information
        (date, tags, etc.) is now omitted because I feel
        that people are more interested in the content of a
        blog entry than when it was written and how it is
        tagged. This omission leads to a much cleaner and
        simpler user interface.

        As always, you can change this behavior if you

  • The String.table_of_contents method now operates on
    XHTML instead of Textile.

      â–¡ The generated table of contents can link directly
        to any HTML heading because it now supports
        nonstandard characters, such as HTML entities (and
        thereby non-English languages), nested HTML
        elements, and so on.
