  • Google sitemaps:
    • Use the new XML namespace. r629

    • IO::Scalar wasn't being used anyway. r585
  • Don't unnecessarily use a temporary file when parsing XHTML. r564

    • The links in the <head> of blog pages are now generated using the standard 'head/meta.tt' template, and they are passed to it in a more flexible format. Blog pages which aren't articles no longer have bad previous or next links in. r566
    • New (by default empty) template for adding extra HTML at the end of the file, like Google Analytics code. r594
    • Include description and tags ('keywords') metadata in <meta> elements in the output. r602, r611

    • All now stored under the 'upgrade' directory. r603, r609
