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.



Version 5.1.0


  • Thanks
  • Caution
  • Features
  • Repairs
  • Usability

This release fixes several defects and increases the
scriptability of blog entries.

1   Thanks

Josef ‘Jupp’ Schugt reported defects, contributed patches,
and suggested features.

2   Caution

  • The RSS feed now contains only the most recent entries
    of your blog. {Jupp}

3   Features

  • An @entry variable is now available for use within a
    blog entry’s text parameter. This variable gives
    information about the blog entry, such as its input and
    output file names, its tags, date, and so on.

4   Repairs

  • strftime("%Z") does not always produce numerical
    output. As a result, the RSS feed was not always
    passing the feed validator. {Jupp}

  • String.to_html now removes <span> tags around acronyms,
    which are added by RedCloth. These tags cause unwanted
    HTML code to appear when acronyms are used in the title
    of a web page or RSS feed items. {Jupp}

  • Entries were always summarized on the ‘recent entries’
    page, regardless of the summarize_entries configuration
    parameter. {Jupp}

  • Anchor links in a blog entry’s summary now correctly
    take you inside the entry’s web page.

  • HTML tags are now removed from the HTML anchors of
    headings in the table of contents.

5   Usability

  • Added CSS style for the “Read more…” link. {Jupp}
