  • 12/09/2002 - Version 1.1.0 build 21 available
    Release notes:
    Do not issue syntax errors for blank lines outside variable definitions.
    Enhance the autoconfiguration, building, and installing procedures.
  • 02/05/2001 - Version 1.1.0 build 18 available
    Release notes:
    This is a bugfix release, solving some problems in the webber kernel and in the following processors: Caparse, Exec, and PgpSign.
  • 09/01/2001 - Version 1.1.0 build 17 available
    Release notes:
    1. Installation procedures no longer overwrite a pre-existing configuration file.
    2. New functionality of the Webbo processor, including the definition of the source and destination via variables.
    3. New command line switch -t, similar to -i (data is read from standard input), but using the template identified by the switch.
    4. Enhanced behavior of the -i option.
    5. New variable #wbbTargetName, containing the full name of the target.
    6. A new processor (Slide) to generate pages in slide-show style.
    7. 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 variable.
      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"
    8. New functionality of the Caparse processor, so it is possible the emulation of the three assignment modes described above by means of the attribute assign.
  • 29/06/2000 - Version 1.1.0 build 16 available
    Release notes:
    1. A new processor (Caparse) that uses an HTML/XML parser for extracting variables from files or other variables.
    2. Two new command line options: -H (shows help about known processors), and -I (lists known processors).
    3. Two new directories added to the distribution: perllib (additonal Perl modules used by Webber) and tools (for additional tools).
    4. Webber now performs an additional checking to avoid moving to a symbolic link that points to an absolute pathname.
    5. 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.
