After some digging, I've found some zipfiles for old releases (pre GPL = pre v2.0). They can now be found in the Nucleus Museum.
pre-v0.9 directory contains versions that were never officially released. The
Nucleus0.01.zip file even contains code that uses XML files to store data instead of XML.

Over the weekend, I've done some site-management on nucleuscms.org and responded to some of the waiting e-mails.
Upgraded the forum to phpBB v2.0.10 (security fixes).
Went through the list of pending approvals for the site list. Also removed a site which now points to a pornographic website (the owner must have abandoned the URL). The link also was on the donators page and welcome post, btw.
It would be great if we had an automated script (NP_SiteList extended) that could run as a cron job and checks all sites once in a while (5 checks every hour or so). Automated checking could be done as follows:
- fetch the page, check if
Generator: Nucleus vx is in the page headers
- if it's not, check the page for links like
- URLs for which no automated checking could be done end up back on the manual approval pile
Also, I'ld keep track of the time of last manual and automatic verification and require even the sites that can be validated automatically to be manually verified once every X months.
Submitted a Nucleus CMS project to Freshmeat. Unfortunately, the Freshmeat staff decided that they already list too much similar projects and denied the request.
- Started investigating Google AdSense. I'll probably add them at the bottom of forum pages and see what the effect is.

- I have a small pile of unanswered e-mail. If you sent me e-mail recently, don't worry: your mail will be answered (sooner or later :))
- Yesterday, while preparing v3.01, I slightly messed up the CVS repository: part of the files have a Nucleus-3-0-1 branch (branchpoint on the Nucleus-3-0 tag). Since I couldn't manage to get all files branched, I gave up in the end. The branch is thus useless and does _not_ contain the actual v3.01 release files. If you happen to come across the branch, it can be safely ignored. If you're used to taking latest versions, there's no need to worry.
- I ended up retrieving all files tagged as Nucleus-3-0 and applied the fixes starting from there. However, I forgot that before releasing v3.0 a quick fix was made to
backup.php (rev 1.11: "sometimes fulltext keys are exported as KEY instead of FULLTEXT KEY, resulting in import problems"). That fix was committed to CVS after tagging v1.10 as Nucleus-3-0, so the updated backup.php is not in the v3.01 release :( (hcgtv pointed this out)
