Para quem quiser testar a próxima versão do b2evolution, antecipadamente.


Segue abaixo o e-mail que o François mandou. (Se o Sérgio usasse
twitter, teria recebido o aviso no twitter do b2evolution! rá!)
Tem uma lista das novidades. Algumas coisas que estão no CVS ainda não
entraram: eu estou vendo se é possível eliminar a idéia de linkblog e
ter os links inclusos no próprio blog, sem a necessidade de incluir um
outro blog pra isso. Está feito no CVS, possivelmente aguardando
revisão dos outros colaboradores. O Afwas adicionou um calendário
jQuery pra fazer uma seleção de data num item lá, substituindo o atual
(e feio). Tem mais alguma coisa que eu não lembro também :)

Se tiverem como instalar isso localmente, reportar bugs e sugerir
coisas, seria bom!

latest additions from the week-end are not included. Don't be mad I
spent the week-end debugging the most obvious flaws and I can do that
on a moving target.

I expect to release 3.0.1 in about 3 weeks.
