Since few weeks i’ve been working on the next generation of this blog’s engine : Alinea3. While Alinea 2 was powered by Webware and ZPT, Alinea3 uses Quixote and Cheetah.

The database schema remained quite the same, except for the Roles layer which was added to provide a flow-engine-like system. For instance, Authors can’t publish their articles if they don’t have the publisher role .. And so on.

I still need to make a CSS stylesheet for the admin part of the site, work on non-javascript popups, and make some Rewriting rules to ease the transition between the 2 websites having different url mappings.

You can browse my Alinea3 blog and give me feedback :-)
