If you still haven't upgraded to b2evolution 2.4.5, you can now do it with even less clicks than before if you have installed b2evolution with Fantastico Deluxe.
Fantastico now ships b2evolution 2.4.5 as part of their installer.
Thank you to the sharp folks at SuperGreen Hosting for pointing this out to us.
If your webhost doesn't have the latest Fantastico, feel free to ask them to upgrade. It should be very easy for them.
So I guess now that Fantastico has upgraded we can release version 2.4.6? Just kidding! We are working on version 3.0. Stay tuned! ;)

I have been waiting for years now to see if b2evo will ever include some common features on a blog as standard features.
1. Most Viewed/Most Commented articles Ajax powered on side bar
2. A nicely formatted form to share with social networking sites, email article to a friend and a Printer format
3. A way to recommend user comments and allow to sort comments by date or users’ rating similar to what you see on NY Times
4. And easier way to publish comments awaiting moderation, may be a check box to all comments you want to publish and post in one scoop instead of posting one comment at a time. Ajax would be useful here
I have seen so many versions but I just can not believe these have not been implemented. Please please include these in your future releases.
I want to add two comments:
I’m hoping one of the new versions of b2evolution has a built-in WYSIWYG editors. I know there’s a plugin out there and, I personally use LiveWriter. However when I’ve demo the tool for other people, they are intimidated by the editor. –especially when you need to go back and edit articles. Wordpress has a decent editor that allows you to edit/resize pictures and tables. that’s a killer feature.
2nd feature - being able to switch skins on the fly - especially as it relates to Mobile phones. That would be great too.
all the best.

They still have not resolved the “blog killer bug” that renders your blog useless after the dysfunctional login panel does not take proper passwords or user names. It logs you out automatically and you can never log back in again.
Don’t use this service until they fix the bugs and help current users.
