Bug Fixes
  • Bad header redirect (304) is causing the RSS feed to not be sent when no updates have been made, but the user doesn't currently have the file!  This has been corrected by redirecting to the existing RSS feed.
  • FULLTEXT entry search may have not been created properly in a previous upgrade.  This condition is automatically checked and corrected in the new upgrade process.

This release is named "Homing Pigeon" because of the ability for PolarBlog posts to now find their way back to your blog!
