Fle4 development was restarted after a long pause, and during spring 2013 we’ve made significant progress. Of most importance is the new map view or 2D view, where each discussion entry flows freely in a two-dimensional space. This has been envisioned already in the 1990s, but it took this long for web technologies to be mature enough.
You can try out the 2D view below this post, by participating in the discussion.
No functional changes, just a heads-up that WP 3.0 is supported. Also, check out David Groos’s excellent instructions for tackling Fle4 issues.
WordPress 2.9 will be released in just a few days. Fle4 is now tested to work correctly with 2.9. And the oldest version Fle4 supports is 2.7.
Fle4 also now has comment sorting, so KB comments can be sorted according to author, knowledge type, or date. This is still a bit hacky, and gets quite slow when you have like a hundred comments in the thread, but it’s there to play with.
The WordPress plugin now supports Knowledge Building typesets exported from Fle3. Scaffolding is also functional, so colors, phrase starters, check lists and detailed descriptions of KB types are now visible when writing a comment to a KB-enabled blog post.
