As 1.2.5 turned into 1.3, so 1.3.1 has turned into Tarski 1.4. A few nice things in this release; all the details are in changelog as usual.
First, something I’m quite pleased with – Tarski now works right out-of-the-box with WordPress MU. The theme will now auto-detect WPMU and tweak its functioning accordingly; the specifics are in the changelog. We’ve been pleased to see networks like WordPress.com and Edublogs picking up Tarski, and we hope this makes it easier to implement.
Fans of custom header images will be happy to hear that we’ve plugged WordPress’s custom header functionality into Tarski, so you can upload new header images with ease.
In the interests of cleaning up the database a little bit, and making it easier to change options via the database and so on, we’ve combined all the various
tarski_blahblahblah options into one array. An upgrade script is included and will run automatically (it’s also available in
library/upgrade-to-1.4.php if you prefer, or wish to peruse). Note: The very first pageview after upgrading may have some SQL errors – just ignore them and refresh the page, they should disappear.
Most of the bug fixes are things we should have fixed ages ago, to do with the display of comments when the columns have been swapped. In all honesty it had just slipped our minds, so thank you to those of you who posted about this issue on the forum.
Other than that, there’s a small localisation issue fix (which again, several people pointed out on the forum), and a bit of footer triage: the default ‘About’ header has been removed and the blurb has moved above the recent articles listing. If you want the header back you can add it in via the Options page, but you don’t have to.
Thanks again to everyone who’s pointed out bugs and contributed translations; hope you enjoy the new release.
