Version 4.1.0


  • Repairs
  • Usability
  • Features

This release fixes the license and RSS feed validity, and
improves usability and entry summarization.

1   Repairs

  • The license was non-free because it disallowed selling.

  • Headings are now omitted from entry summaries. For
    example, if your entry’s text starts out with a heading

    h1. Introduction

    then that heading will not be put into the summary. See
    the config/entry.erb template for details.

  • Invalid URI characters in URLs (for sending e-mail
    comments) were not properly escaped in the RSS feed.

2   Usability

  • Added a “trail of bread crumbs”, with links to an
    entry’s tags and archive, just below an entry’s name.
    This makes it easier to browse entries and find related
    entries. See the config/entry.erb template for details.

  • The “Entries” link now appears just after the “Home”
    link in the main navigation area because it seems more
    natural to want to see a listing of all entries after
    you’ve just seen the most recent ones.

3   Features

  • The blog author’s name (at the bottom of the config/
    html.erb template) is now hyperlinked to the comments
    e-mail address if the e-mail comments are enabled.

  • The String.table_of_contents method now accepts a
    block, which allows for custom processing of the
    hierarchical structure of an XHTML document.
