ReleaseOne Beta Candidate is up

By spiderr
Tuesday, November 02, 2004
I have posted a preliminary Beta candidate for ReleaseOne. Please snag a copy - either with "cvs checkout ReleaseOne" (we are
still running off HEAD) or better yet, get the tarball at /builds/bitweaver_clyde_bc1.tar.gz

Please send early bug reports either to me, or post them to our SourceForge bug database.

Try to turn on every bell and whistle. Big ugly stack traces (ie "crashes") are the easiest to fix, so please include th…

Liberty Admin & HTML formatting option

By spiderr
Thursday, October 14, 2004
I have checked in an initial version of a HTML format plugin for PackageLiberty. This means you can opt for HTML formatting your wiki or blog pages. Wiki syntax is great, but not for everyone, so this option should open the door to many new possibilities.

Also, I have started the ball rolling on Liberty's admin pages. First up is a simple UI to toggle which PackageLibertyPlugins are active.

Pretty URL's are in

I have added support for clean url's in CLYDE like using mod_rewrite. So far users and blogs have had support added.

Major overhaul of admin & installer

By spiderr
Friday, May 21, 2004
I have given the Installer and Admin sections a major overhaul.

The installer is now nicely modularized, and you can arbitrarly install only the packages you want. You can install additional packages at a later date with or without destorying existing tables. Work that needs to be done is dependency checking, and some decent security & confirmation steps when re-installing.

Admin menu code has been broken out to package/templates/menu_package_admin.tpl file that gets searched for and included…

So ReleaseZero has been unleashed on!!

This has been a long time coming, and no doubt there are still a few rough edges, but this seems pretty solid. Hopefully we'll get a Release Candidate on sourceforge real soon now...

Bonnie is coming...

Well, this blog post is being made to the live database using the ReleaseZero code base. This is very promising and we hope to have something testworthy by the end of next week (March 15 or so). I encourage all to download a copy and take it for a spin.

I keep thinking about future release already and am getting very inclined to implement ContentInheritance. UserPagewolff_borg is fired up for stripping out everything to get speeed cranking.

Some structure changes...

By Stephan Borg
Thursday, February 26, 2004
Made some structure and rename changes today.

kernel/local.php is now kernel/config_inc.php
kernel/defaults_inc.php is now kernel/config_defaults_inc.php

Kernel flowchart goes something like this:
  1. /tiki_setup_inc.php is called - this defines TIKI_ROOT_PATH and points to (requires) kernel/setup_inc.php
  2. kernel/setup_inc.php is called - the first two things it does is includes (in case its a virgin install) kernel/config_inc.php and requires kernel/config_defaults_inc.php. This file is

I should have been washing my car, or at least go outside, but once I got started yesterday, the slippery slope of bitweaver took me away. At this point it seems we are over 80% of the way towards getting ArchitectureTransition complete and the ReleaseZero will soon be ready for the TestingBranch.

If you want to see the work in progress, see

If you are interested in helping out, read the ArchitectureTransition page for what needs to be done.

I salute your use of phpBB for the message boards... I've been looking around at several CMS/Wiki software programs and found that if your primary need is a BB then the one in TikiWiki is just horrible. Do all phpBB mods work on bitweaver? If you are using phpBB and TikiWiki isn't how can you maintain compatability?

I have re-organized the first bitweaver ReleaseAl into directories, known as a bitweaverPackage. You can browse this reorganization at and download a tarball there. Note, this code does not work, nor is it final. It's just the first pass at the boring work of moving all the files into much more modular groupings.

Next steps will be to make all those buckets actually work, which is a whole lot of
find . -name "*tpl" -exec perl -i -wpe "s/foo…
