Albeit it is lacking several of its key features, I decided to put ANN v2 online today. Feel free to take a look around, but beware that this is a pre-release. In other words, this is beta software. It may still contain a few bugs, provide links that either lead nowhere or that are out-of-date, etc.
New features that are already available in this pre-relase:
Features that are planned, but which are not ready right now:
- Five new article formats (News, Files, Web, Motd, Rant). You should discover them throughout the next few days. Possibility to see all five categories, or just a selection of them.
- New "range" system that no longer relies on the date but on the number of articles
- Database system for easy access to the file and website databases (Freshmeat and AWD-like behaviour)
- Revised comment system that allows truly threaded (ie. indented) comments
- and much, much more :)
