Release notes for SparkCMS 0.3.12

For archival purposes, here are the release notes for SparkCMS 0.3.12. This version of the CMS was uploaded to the servers on the 23rd of October 2005, five days after the previous version was uploaded (0.3.11).

Mostly a bug-fix release to address some issues with time zone adjustments, this update also had a full remake of the session manger, standards compliant output for all video services and a workaround for the w3c xhtml validators not sending "http_accept" headers (pages will actually validate via "Click here to validate" links). Additionally a couple small bug-fixes and a cosmetic change to the markup found its way into the code...

Changelog entries (mouse-over for date)

  • F: Added linebreak before "</head>" :-)
  • S: Reworked the complete(!) session manager to allow full configuration and faster operation
  • S: Improved performance for reserved/private IP addresses (and updated the IP definitions)
  • F: Once again; Fixed some rare issues with time adjustments (might result in some off documents)
  • F: Reworked both Revver and YouTube output to conform with standards and use <object> tags
  • F: Fixed regex issue (in aggregator mode) witch matched <params> as opening of paragraphs (<p>)
  • X: Implemented a workaround for W3C's Validator "http_accept" limitation (pages wasn't validating)
