I actually got into the thick of Blog coding yesterday evening and added the final bit of major functionality that I wanted to see in the 5.0 release – a Find tool that lets you find any entries in the current journal (or across all the journals in Blog) that have a specific word or phrase in them. I really like how the final product turned out because I hadn’t really envisioned it that way when I started coding :p I need to do a few more bits of tweaking and testing and then I should be ready to release Blog 5.0 (finally …) sometime today or tomorrow – latest, Monday. I am toying with the idea of making the full install be done via a setup program to make it easier on new users and make the upgrade distro (which I’ve been promising as a separate download for a while now <g>) be a ZIP file. Of course, if you want to download the full distro but do only an upgrade, the setup program would allow you to change the install options to remove the database files from the install …

I’m also debating about releasing BOB and Scope at the same time – the reasons I’m in two minds about that? Well, Scope is still kinda half-baked and I don’t know if Mozilla works or not with the latest build – on my system it crashes every time and I have no idea whether it is Mozilla or Scope. Plus, they’ve upgraded Mozilla again and I probably should test out Scope with the latest build again … On the BOB side, I still haven’t heard from Daniel and am wondering whether he’s even using BOB or if it was another one of those e-mails where somebody gets really enthusiastic about an app for a few days but forgets all about it after that. If that is the case, since only two people have expressed any interest in it and the one who requested all the features has gone silent, I will simply leave BOB as it is since it has all the stuff that *I* need from it …
