whilst on the subject of orablogs - version 2 is in the wings

I made a note of a link to a post made by Brian Duff about two weeks ago on his blog titled "Coming Soon: Orablogs 2" (I have altered the link to go direct via the IP Address for now!)

The post starts with a discussion of complete feeds or truncated ones - i.e. like mine and Tom's amongst others that now give a taster of the post and the reader needs to then visit the relevant site to read the whole post. Brian then goes on to list some of the great new features he plans to (? or already has) add(ed) to orablogs. Some of these new features include the use of ATOM for input and output (this is the future of feeds!), page and feed caching for reduced bandwidth consumption - this may speed up the site as well. Reduction (or removal?) of the need for horizontal scrolling - This I will be glad to see. Also Brian plans to add click through stats, this will be a very interesting addition. Have a look at Brian's post for a complete list - feel free to add to it - as Brian requests!

I hope that Brian gets this live soon; it sounds like a great collection of new features for a great site, and letís hope his DNS woes are fixed soon.
