BlazeBlogger 1.1.0

2010-09-27 by Jaromír Hradílek, tagged as release

BlazeBlogger 1.1.0 has been released! Among few bug fixes and several usability improvements, this release features enhanced RSS feed creation, support for both HTML and XHTML standards, and improved index page.

New Features

This update features the following enhancements:

  • Older blog posts are now easily accessible from the index page itself.
  • The configuration file now supports the user.nickname configuration option, allowing a user to use a different name for blog posts and the copyright notice.
  • blaze-config, blaze-add, and blaze-edit now support the --editor command line option, allowing a user to specify a custom text editor.
  • Depending on the core.doctype configuration option, blaze-make now produces both valid HTML and XHTML output.
  • The feed.fullposts option has been added to the configuration, allowing a user to enable inclusion of the whole content of a blog post in the RSS feed.
  • The feed.posts option has been added to the configuration, allowing a user to customize a number of blog posts to be listed in the RSS feed.
  • The source package newly contains a command wrapper for Windows. Many thanks to Sergey Kuznetsov, who has kindly provided it!
  • The localization files are now part of the official distribution.
  • The Bash completion file is now part of the official distribution.

Bug Fixes

Additionally, this update also fixes the following bugs:

  • Previously, the RSS feed produced by BlazeBlogger did not contain the “encoding” attribute. Consequent to this, the feed may have been rendered incorrectly when the blog used a different code page than the default UTF-8. With this release, the RSS feed has been extended, and the XML header now defines the character encoding as expected.
  • Previously, blog post and page headers contained a grave accent (that is, `), which may have caused the syntax highlighting to be rendered incorrectly in certain text editors. This has been fixed, and the grace accent has been replaced with an apostrophe (that is, ').


BlazeBlogger is a simple-to-use but capable CMS for the command line that produces static content without the need of database servers or server side scripting. It is suitable for a wide variety of web presentations, from a personal weblog to a project page, or even a company website.
