    How about some conversion scripts to update a 1.0.9 site to the latest release?
  • Believe me, bender's still a big enough mess that conversion scripts would be premature at this time. Just my HO.

  • Cliff is working on them. Look for them in one of the next couple of betas.

    You can't grep a dead tree.
  • Thanks for all the bug reports, that's the kind of thing we need.
  • Thank god for that...that was some seriously unreadable SQL. There's still a bunch of small bugs all over the place, some of which I mistakenly submitted as an article here and will now instead be submitting them to SourceForge. Sorry bout that.

    I've been finding them because I'm installing Bender on a system for which I don't have control over the webserver, so I don't get to use the Apache hooks. A fun and interesting project.
