It's that time again.
  • Roller 1.2: I spent most of last week working on Roller 1.2. Part of that work was for the OpenSolaris launch. We used Roller 1.2's built-in "planet" aggregator to create the OpenSolaris blog, aggregating together about 150 blogs into one big blog with it's own newsfeed. I had to write a little custom code to load the list of blogs, because the aggregator's UI doesn't have a bulk-load capability yet. Later in the week I spent a couple of days on fixing bugs, Javadocs and Velocidocs.

  • Roller 1.3: We've started to talk a bit about a Roller 1.3 release to incorporate some theme management changes. We need to make it easier to manage themes and apply changes globally to all user's themes, but still allow power-users to tweak their page templates. Allen has put together a rough proposal for better theme management.

  • Roller 2.0: I spent a couple of days on Roller 2.0 last week, still working on the data model and the new many-to-many relationship between weblogs and users. The OpenSolaris and Roller 1.2 contininued to put me further behind schedule, but I'm still shooting for group blogging done in August.

  • Roller@Apache: Starting today, we're using the Apache incubator mailing lists for the Roller-dev and Roller-user lists, but I still haven't updated the wiki with subscribe and unsubscribe info.

  • RSS and Atom in Action: Since the chapters are out of my hands, at this point all I can do is watch the Atom Protocol list. Chapter one may be coming back from copy-edit today.
That's it for now. Again, I hope to spend the remainder of the week on Roller 2.0 'cause who knows how much I'll be able to get done duing JavaOne week. And, the week after that is summer vacation.

While you're at it, could someone do something about the RSS feeds on blogs.sun.com? The permalinks/GUIDs keep changing every so often, which means we keep seeing old articles over and over again. Needless to say, this looks completely unprofessional.

Here is one example of a recent entry in Jonathan Schwartz's blog, which changed GUIDs no fewer than three times:

<table border="1"> <tr><td>2005-06-06</td><td>http://blogs.sun.com/roller/page/jonathan/20050606#why_stk</td></tr> <tr><td>2005-06-07</td><td>http://blogs.sun.com/roller/page/jonathan/20050606#the_future_of_the_internet</td></tr> <tr><td>2005-06-23</td><td>http://blogs.sun.com/roller/page/jonathan?entry=the_future_of_the_internet</td></tr> </table>
