- 09/01/2001 - Version 1.1.0 build 17 available
- Installation procedures no longer overwrite a pre-existing configuration file.
- New functionality of the Webbo processor, including the definition of the source and destination via variables.

- Enhanced behavior of the -i option.
- New variable #wbbTargetName, containing the full name of the target.
- A new processor (Slide) to generate pages in slide-show style.
- A new mode for assigning values to a variable, using the * symbol.
This mode inserts the new value at the beginning of the original value for the
This way, assignment modes are as follows:
Consider a variabke named "a" containing the value "value1".
Using The value becomes ----- ----------------- #a=value2 "value2" #a+value2 "value1 value2" #a*value2 "value2 value1"

- 29/06/2000 - Version 1.1.0 build 16 available
- A new processor (Caparse) that uses an HTML/XML parser for extracting variables from files or other variables.
- Two new command line options: -H (shows help about known processors), and -I (lists known processors).
- Two new directories added to the distribution: perllib (additonal Perl modules used by Webber) and tools (for additional tools).
- Webber now performs an additional checking to avoid moving to a symbolic link that points to an absolute pathname.
- Add two new variables:
- #wbbExtParser: Tells Webber not to parse a source file, since an external parser (one of the processor) is supposed to do so.
- #wbbTargetFileMode: To set the permissions files should be created with.
