Solar is a simple object library and application repository for PHP5. This is a development release made in the middle of the night due to insomnia. 😉
Among other things, there is a second proof-of-concept application included; Solar_App_Bookmarks mimics and extends a lot of del.icio.us functionality. I’m already using it instead of del.icio.us, as I can assign arbitrary ranks to links and then get an RSS feed in that order, instead of descending by timestamp.
Finally, I’ve started an open wiki for documentation (now that I have two good working apps I think it’s time to describe how to install and use them ;-).
The change notes are:
* WARNING: This is a public development release, and is not yet stable. * WARNING: There are database schema changes in this release. * Fixed bug in Solar::pathinfo(); elements were all off by 1 (needed to shift off the first returned element, as it is always blank). * In Solar_Sql_Entity::buildSchema(), the 'join' value must now be a $schema['rel'] keyword. * Solar_Sql_Entity::update() now retains primary keys in a separate array (instead of unsetting them entirely) and restores them after the update process; this will help with post-update tasks that need the primary key. * Solar_Sql_Entity::selectCount() and selectPages() have been combined into countPages(), which returns an array with both the row count and the page count. * Solar_User_Auth_Htpasswd now rejects DES-encrypted passwords longer than 8 characters due to a limitation in crypt(). Have added support for SHA1 (thanks Tomas Cox) and APR1-MD5 (thanks Mike Wallner) encrypted passwords to offset this. * Added Solar_User_Auth_Multi to perform authentication against multiple fallback sources. * Solar_User_Role now uses a single role driver class by default. * Added Solar_User_Role_Multi to pull from multiple group/role sources. * Renamed Solar_Cell_Talk to Solar_Cell_Comments for clarity (this includes a set of schema changes as well as in-place support for trackback and pingback storage). * Schema changes to Solar_Cell_Bugs. * Added Solar_Uri as a URI import/manipulate/export tool, generally useful for building navigation links. Works with query elements as well as path_info elements. * Added Solar_Cell_Tags as a shared tag-search resource to support ubiquitous tagging across all Solar applications. * Added Solar_Cell_Bookmarks and Solar_App_Bookmarks for bookmark management similar to the del.icio.us service. * Various locale string additions and modifications.
