I took the code for ft_blog and used it as the base for the next version of Flip, which we all know by now, is not actually going to be called “Flip.” However, I’ve done A LOT with it. In fact, it’s kind of a new app. It uses templates all over the place, and it’s so much smarter. The URLs are really pretty (although unlike ft_blog, they do require .php at the end, because I can’t be assured that adding DefaultType application/x-httpd-php is going to work everywhere).
I also have a nice framework and plans to support multiple databases. I am aiming for MySQL and flatfiles, then SQLite and PostgreSQL secondarily. I am definitely going to put together a pre-release of some sort for October. Whether it’s tagged alpha, beta, RC, or even CTP remains to be seen.
First I need a name.
