07/05/2007: "Greymatter 1.7.3 is released"
The latest and greatest next release of Greymatter has been released a few days ago. Greymatter is the original weblogging and journal software originally written by Noah Grey and now maintained by a group of developers hosted out of the greymatter forums. It is written in Perl, doesnt need a database, supports most blogging features; comments, banning spam, feeds (RSS, RDF and Atom) and much more.
I have updated this and my other blogs to 1.7.3 and everything seems to be going well. A big thanks as always to Coldstone for his sterling efforts on this version. The new features and updates (from the forum) are:
