#WriteFreely

Today's #bugfix release is a non-critical update for anyone currently running WriteFreely — you can skip it if you haven't been affected by any of the issues below.

You'll want to upgrade to this version if you're running WriteFreely on Windows, as it fixes a server error that prevents a blog's customize page from rendering (#61). With this fix, WF should be stable enough to run on Windows.

You'll also want to upgrade if you weren't able to successfully configure a single-user blog, whether backed by MySQL or SQLite, due to a database error (#59).

Fixes

  • Fix blog customize page not rendering on Windows (#61)
  • Initialize database during config step for single-user instance (#59)
