After another (unannounced) hiatus away from the project, I make a meager return by updating the WordPress software running the blog. The reason for my disappearance was basically Real Life issues that left no time or energy for any hobby projects. The time I spent on the computer during the fall at home in the evenings can be counted in minutes. But now a new year has begun and life is again a little different, so I can spend a moment every now and then working on Doomsday-related things.
My current plan concerning Doomsday is to:
<li>Switch to Universal builds on Mac OS X. This I actually already managed to do, although the result may only work on Leopard (plus I didn't actually try to run it on an Intel Mac yet).</li>
<li>Make an automated Mac OS X (nightly) build system that generates .dmg files of the latest sources/some suitable tag. This is basically a return to the olden days of the work-in-progress releases, so that we don't have to be so embarrassed of the timeliness of our official releases (i.e., the lack thereof).
Automated release building for Windows should also be possible, although I don't plan to do it myself.</li>
As a result of the WordPress upgrade, some things seem to have changed slightly. There was briefly some confusion about the subcategories, which appeared to have gone missing (although they haven't been deleted; links to the subcategories still work). Now the subcategories seem to work, but the new WordPress version supports tags as well, so I think it's better to go on with just the top-level categories and use tags for more specific info. Let's see if the theme needs an update to display the tags.
Also, the Akismet spam plugin is now activated, which should help prevent the deluge of spam comments.
