Plugin Version: 1.2, 07 Apr 2008
Change History:  
07 Apr 2008 1.2 Added optional inclusion of author pictures from TWiki:Plugins/PersonalInfoAddOn. Important upgrade notice: this version uses WIKINAME instead of WIKIUSERNAME in the Author form field. This change is not compatible with existing blog topics. If you have existing posts, you must change all author names from Main.UserName to UserName.
26 Jan 2008 1.1 Adds the creation date to blog post topic names. Adds an Edit link to the Comments header in a blog post. Increases the height of the comment box. Bug fix: allow topic names with periods.
26 Jun 2007 1.0.9 Fixed html bug in BlogPost; added comment count to BlogPost; improved styling of form elements.
08 Apr 2007 1.0.8 Show link to latest comment in BlogPost listing. Improved readability for comments. This version relies on CommentPlugin svn release number 13313 and PatternSkin svn release number 13320, but BlogAddOn will now play nicely with other skins as well.
06 Feb 2007 1.0.7 Added no-javascript fallback to BlogPost and BlogPostCreator (so that topic can actually be created without javascript). Fixed a javascript bug that was introduced when a Core function was renamed.
25 Feb 2007 1.0.6 URL param for limit setting now overrides INCLUDE parameter.
25 Feb 2007 1.0.5 Prevents recreation/overwriting of existing topics. Added "No limit" label to filter dropdown.
15 Feb 2007 1.0.4 Removed my name from the templates.
16 Dec 2006 1.0.3 The comment topic will automatically be created as child topic of the blog post. Changed parameter reverse to sortdirection.
15 Dec 2006 1.0.2 RSS feed link to category filter, fixes to sorting/filtering.
14 Dec 2006 1.0.1 Option to set defaults when including BlogPost.
12 Dec 2006 1.0 First release.
