The final 0.8.2 version has been released.

I installed today this relase on my site and im very happy with him.
I hope you will continue making this very exating soft.
PD: Have b2evolution some translation sistem?because I wont to translat it to my lenguage (catalan).
Im sorry for my english level, I know is so bad.
hehe… implementing a translation system indeed is part of what I refered to as “heavy modifications od the code” ;)
If you are agree, I can help you with the spanish ans catalan translation.
Only one more question,What can I do to translate my site now?
PD: I hope i can help your team with the translation
Watch this page for annoucements and instructions on how to translate when the translation system is available.
I do not recommend translating current version (0.8.2).
How many time, do you think that the new version where relase?
probably a couple of weeks…
Ok!!!, many tanks. Now I will gonna make my skin and some extra thinks.
Best regard, and many greatings for b2evolution, I really enjoy it.
I see that b2e now supports “friendly URLs", a la ‘/blog/year/month/day/postnum", which is great, but one feature I envy that I’ve seen in other weblog software (though I can’t recall which) is the ability to generate a short URL from the title of a post. For example, if I have a post with the title “Reality Teevee is a Disease", I’d like to be able to link to it with the URL “/blog/realityTeeveeIs” or similar. Of course, if you had more than one post with the same title, you’d have to come up with an alternate name, like “realityTeeveeIs2″. Anyway, is there any chance we’ll see a feature like this in a subsequent release of b2e?
Also, what about caching pages for performance?
Is there any sort of public TODO list so we can see what features are in planning/development?
Meaningful URLs and advanced caching are both in the works. ;)
However, there is no public TODO list because that would be be a little too much artifical pressure… :P
That’s fantastic to hear, Francois.
Maybe can i help you with the Brazilian Portuguese version of b2evo!
That’s a great work!
Francois (I apologize for my presistent misspelling of your name, I’m just too lazy to type the cedilla), I just now installed b2e on my test server, and I must say I’m impressed. The installation went flawlessly and was impossibly easy to do, and I’m quite impressed by all of the configuration options. The configuration files are very easy to understand, too. I’m currently poking around to see what I found, but it took just a few seconds to import my 1500+ old posts into the new database. I’m extremely pleased and can’t wait to see what I can do with it.
