I realize that but it is always good to hear from previous contributors
every now and then.
When the next version of glFusion is released I planned on taking a look at
the core notification service and the new php session management system. I
will add the template engine to the list.
I have been wanting to add/update these systems for a while now in Geeklog.
If the code looks easy to port and if everyone else agrees, with some help
it would be nice to integrate this stuff into Geeklog in the next version.
There is no point to re-invent the wheel if we do not have to.

The CTL as it was once called was a part of glFusion from day one. I do
believe there were a few bug fixes made to it in glFusion due to 100%
compatibility issues involving the caching side. But it has always worked
well with stock plugins. Since that first release, there was another release
that included a few more conditional variable updates and changes.
I would have thought being part a living codebase for 6 years would have
changed it some but apparently it has been working just fine for them at
glFusion these 6 years. All the library has ever needed was someone on the
core team to be willing to check it in and give a good look.
I'm not really back. The volume on geeklog-devel is low enough that I've
felt the need to unsubscribe. It's like having an old girlfriend as a friend
on Facebook for me by now.
But seriously, I want to encourage you to investigate borrowing things from
glFusion. If you used their template engine it might once again be possible
to share plugins between the projects.
Heck, the library is "part of Geeklog". One of the devs from Japan maintains
a version of mediagallery (Mark's old plugin) that has the updates Mark has
made to the plugin in glFusion which of course takes advantage of the new
features in the template library. This was only possible by including my
template library in the plugin and having the plugin use it in place of the
normal template class found in Geeklog. I think the version of the template
library used there has the caching part removed, though I could be wrong
