I think we are getting close to the first beta release. The only thing left
on my feature list to do (for this release anyways) is add caching for

Does anyone have any other features they are working on at the moment?

Lwc added a few bug reports that could be looked at along with

Does anyone have any other bugs they want to see squashed (and have the time
to do it)?

IMO Geeklog 2.1.0 is really stable at the moment it has a number of new
features, it fixes a lot of issues found in 2.0.0,  has a big speed
increase, and fixes multi-language sites. I needed the speed increase on my
site so I have been running 2.1.0 on one of my live sites for a while now
and things are really stable.

I am hoping we can release the first beta in a month after I finish up the
caching of articles (unless someone else is currently working on something).

Here is a partial list of what has been added/fixed in Geeklog 2.1.0

- Integrated Caching Template Library original developed by Joe Mucchiello
- Support for themes to specify a default theme. Default themes template and
  files will be used unless they are included in the new theme directory

  staticpages and articles [Tom]

- What's Related article block now includes all Topics. Can set length of
- Articles now list what Topics they are filed under. [Tom]
- New related_topics autotag. It displays all topics an item belongs too.
- New related_items autotag. It displays all other related items based on
  topics the defined item belongs too [Tom]
- Updated Command & Control layout. Plugins can now organized into groups.
- New OAuth login methods supported (Google, Microsoft, Yahoo). OAuth
  now includes 1.0, 1.0a, and 2.0 (depends on what the provider supports)
- Javascript and css can now be loaded in a specified order. [Tom]
- Numerous fixes for multi-language support [Tom]
- Added CKEditor as the default advanced editor for Geeklog [Dengen]
- New article render which fixes entities etc... from showing up where they 
  shouldn't [Dengen]

  javascript editors [Dengen]

I have now updated the Geeklog repository so the next version of Geeklog
will be 2.1.0.

I just remembered that jQuery and jQuery UI should be updated to the latest
version before the first RC release.

I simply deleted the old 2.1.0 version and renamed 2.0.1 to 2.1.0. There
were 3 issues with a target release of (the old) 2.1.0 that I had to
manually update afterwards.

Not elegant, but seems to have done the trick :)

Will do.
