Rassmalog is a static blog engine based on YAML, eRuby, and Rake. It transforms blog entries written in Textile or other formatting systems into valid XHTML files that are user friendly in both graphical and text-only web browsers. http://rassmalog.rubyforge.org â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â”â” Version 4.2.0 Contents â€¢ Caution â€¢ Additions â€¢ Repairs â€¢ Usability This release revises the documentation, allows importing of blog entries from an RSS feed, adds support for more uploader programs, and repairs several defects. 1 Caution â€¢ In config/blog.yaml, the host parameter has been removed and the uploader parameter has been made into an eRuby template in order to support more uploader programs. â€¢ The feed task now generates the RSS feed rather than the index task. â€¢ â€œ[Rassmalog]â€ no longer appears at the beginning of a comment e-mailâ€™s subject because it hinders usability. 2 Additions â€¢ Added an import task, which lets you import blog entries from an RSS feed. â€¢ The upload task now supports lftp as an uploader program. 3 Repairs â€¢ The copy task now supports copying of symbolic links and hidden files (also known as â€œdot filesâ€ because their names begin with a period). It also preserves modification times and permissions of copied files correctly. â€¢ The â€œTagged as â€¦â€ message no longer appears in an entryâ€™s information if the entry does not have any tags. â€¢ Entry summarization now allows trailing whitespace within a paragraph separator â€¢ Restored support for scp as an uploader program for the upload task. 4 Usability â€¢ Removed the â€œtrail of bread crumbsâ€, which contained links to an entryâ€™s tags and appeared just below an entryâ€™s name, because it stole attention away from the blog entries themselves and cluttered the interface. â€¢ Tag clouds now use standard CSS font-size names (xx-small x-small small medium large x-large xx-large) instead of numerical font sizes. â€¢ Balanced the widths of the blog entry and hierarchical menu using optimal line lengths for better readability. â€¢ Revised the instructions presented atop the search page.

I have replaced the 4.2.0 package accordingly. Furthermore, I fixed some additional bugs in the RSS feed (thanks to Josef 'Jupp' Schugt for reporting) and sneaked them into the 5.0.0 package. Sorry for the confusion.
