To upgrade from previous versions, BACK UP YOUR CURRENT INSTALL and simply copy everything in the distro’s /textpattern/ directory into your existing /textpattern/ directory. You will need to re-enter anything you’ve set in /lib/admin_config.php – this nasty step should be eliminated next release.
Changes in this version are largely to the back end: you’ll see a number of navigation tweaks and some simple things that should have been added long ago.
This is a release candidate, and has been fairly thoroughly thrashed, but there are no guarantees against something blowing up. There is therefore no shame in waiting a couple days to see when rc2 or rc3 appear.
Also note that publish.php hasn’t changed dramatically for this version, nor have its dependencies. You may be able to get away with using your own substantially hacked version of publish.php, should one exist.
UPGRADERS Do not run _update.php! It gets run automatically when needed. Forget about it entirely! Underpants!
Changes in this version:
One thing I was hoping to get in for this release, but it’s not quite there yet, is a themes engine I’ve been working on: this allows simultaneous installation of pages, stylesheets and forms through a simple installer much like the one used for plugins. Look for it in an RC or two.
Other things which should appear shortly: metaweblog xml support, serious power editing of articles, batch image uploading directly into galleries, and there will in addition be pie.
Thanks for all the hard work Dean and crew.
> A question: is 1.0 able to display image’s captions?
Not (yet, doh!) in the default gallery tags, but isn’t there a slew of image display plugins that do?
After the long weird unsettling summer that brought us to here and now, there will inevitably be bugs like this and other thing I’ve missed. Our new Trac and wiki and SVN repository will certainly mean very rapid cleanup of these in the coming weeks, he said with a straight face.

Hurrah, thats the news I was waiting for! Excellent stuff!
Being lazy here – did you make any changes to comments.php by any chance?

Just at line 26:
…which means that comment data can now only come from $_POST, and that which does gets some extra cleanup against XSS and the like.
Dean thanks. I can’t wait to install it after I get out of work and check it out.
Thanks for the hard work.

Lookin’ good… great idea on the auto DB update!
Many changes to tag behaviour or new tags that need to be documented?
VC#72, waiting patiently for /section/category/article-title/ based URLs :)
>>_update.php now resizes the password field in txp_users to accept longer hashes
Wowza!! This threw me for a couple of days after upgrading MySql to 4.1.1. for it’s Unicode support…should have waited for RC. Tks, Jai
