To GIT or not to GIT

Some days ago, Leo has posted a comment asking why does Gesbit stay in SourceForge. I answered that I know that GitHub is the trend and SourceForge have a bad reputation, but I prefer SVN over GIT and SourceForge did work for many years.

Later I found that new owners of SourceForge posted an article in his blog one day before Leo posted his comment. You can read it; they recognize SourceForge's bad reputation problem, and talks about planning how to fix it. And they started by terminating the DevShare program, which was one of the main sources of that bad reputation. They also promised that there will be more changes in the future.

That means I'll keep my SourceForge projects here for a while.

Let's go

So, here we are again.

About six years after release the 2.0, here we are again working on the Gesbit web blog manager.  If you follow the SVN repository, you see some small improvements, including the new version of the default gbSimple theme, much more HTML5, and a new English language available.  All these changes will be released soon as version 2.0.1 (actually it should be version 1.10.1, but David did messed up with the version stuff).

Also, there are a lot of stuff planned, enough to call it version 3.0.0.  Main core will be rewriten with new internal API wich will include more data base manager support (i.e. Interbase, Oracle and more), as well as a public API that should make it easy to integrate Gesbit with other web-based applications. But as I've said this is a long-term planned stuff.

At the moment, version 2.0.1 (WIP) is available at SVN TRUNK (You can download a snapshot), and soon will be available for download.
