PolarBlog V1.3.0 Beta

I'm now running what will be PolarBlog V1.3.0 on this, my live blog.  If you notice anything odd, let me know.  There are a few bug fixes and enhancements in this release, but the biggie for this release is internationalization (I18N).  With this release —barring any unknown problems, PolarBlog should now support languages other than U.S. English.  I've been working with a German developer on implementing this and he may also be beta testing this as well in the coming days.  If you are fluent in something other than English, translators are need.

Looking ahead to V1.4, if you have features you would like to see added please let me know.  At this time I know of two feature that will be in V1.4:
  • Topic Icon Sizing - Right now all icons are locked at 32x32.  This was a carryover from PWL.  I may add scaleable sizing to the Topic Edit section, but that may be more trouble than it is worth.  At the very least the 32x32 lockdown will be removed.  That's a trivial change.
  • Output Compression - I will be add the ability to gzip compress your PolarBlog output.  This creates a minor load increase on the web server, but it cuts your bandwidth useage greatly.
