An Update on Journalness

Sorry there hasnt been much visible progress around here but don't worry, were working on alot of new features. Here are just some of the features that will be included in the next release of journalness (Hopefully released in the next week or so).

New Features/Fixes:
* Added Update feature to the Web Installer. This way you wont have to manually back up your data to upgrade to this next version of journalness, it will upgrade everything that needs it and all your data will remain in-tact.
* PHP5 Compatible
* Added support for the PostgreSQL Database. Hopefully more types databases will be supported in the future.
* As users register they are able to put information about themselves such as AIM, ICQ, MSN, YIM, Location, etc etc. This information is also available for viewing/editing in your profile.
* Email Validation: The admin can choose to make the users validate their account via email before they are allowed access to that journal.
* Multilingual Support (We need people to translate the english language file to other languages in order for it work).
* Ability to store uploaded images directly into the Database if the admin chooses so.
* You can now preview entries before you post them, preview also works while editing an entry.
* Optimized and Cleaned code (Runs faster and more efficiently)
* Other bug fixes.... read more

Journalness Reloaded!

We have just recently added another member to the Journalness Team, Gabriel Preston and we are excited to have him. We are in the process of rebuiling journalness with standards in mind that way our code will be easier to read and much easier to build upon. Not only are we standardizing but we are also optimizing and cleaning our code. Be on the lookout of for the next release of Journalness sometime in the near future.
