It’s Friday, so time to go light:
We would like to alert you that there’s been a patch release to Web 2.0 to address some minor bugs and address valuable new features. Although this is a minor upgrade, and should not effect your use of Web 2.0, please note the following changes.
- Bug 84318192-b: We’ve addressed a problem with the automatic product revision system that caused products to be stuck at “beta” level. Please note that many of these projects are actually Version 1.0 (with several at Version 2.0).
- Bug 84399290.3: We’ve also noticed that the term “version” when applied to a web based application is kind of dumb. It’s not like you can uninstall “News” and use a previous version anyway.
- Bug 84410000: The use of weird names for products is not a bug, it’s a feature.
- Bug 84435923: There have been an inordinate number of map based applications. This was due to a programming creativity glitch. Shock collars have been distributed.
- Bug 85732641: We thought about introducing an RSS feed of the current time, but decided it was dumb. So we did it anyway. XML
- Bug 86753090: We were thinking about allowing page generators to specify various tags associated with the content they generate. Then we realized those were covered by “meta:keywords”, overrun by spammers and now nobody uses them. So we changed the name, they’re now called “Generator Tags”. We understand several startups announced this morning are basing their business model off of them.
- Bug 93242381: … PROFIT! (Yeah, still working on that one.)
We urge all current Web 2.0 users to upgrade to Web 2.0.1 as soon as possible.
Or to wait a few weeks for Web 2.1.0.
(or wait about a month for Web 3.0)
