As mentioned a few posts back we have a shiny new Surfulater pre-release available for you to take for spin.
The focus of this release is the newÂ Tags dialog, which I blogged about in Tags – we need your help. Part 1.Â Avi has written several follow on posts: Tags and Whitespace – more feedback requested, Tag Management Part III – adding new tags (I’m not sure what happened to Part II) and Tag Management – Live Example Page
We’ve received a lot of great feedback, which we thank you very much for. And we look forward to more.
After weighing things up we’ve settled on using the combined Add and Remove Tags dialog implementation I presented in Part 1, with a change to the Keep column, making it Remove, as suggested by Craig Prichard.
Avi has put together a sample presenting various alternate combinations (18 I think he said) in hisÂ Tag Management – Live Example Page post. Do comment on these.
In case you haven’t been following the recent flurry of recent articles, the newÂ Add and Remove Tags dialog enables you to quickly add new tags to a group of selected articles and remove tags from them. I don’t want to repeat the earlier discussions here, so please go and read those posts for details.
The Surfulater Help Topic: The Basics | Tags and Tagging Articles has been updated to cover the new Add and Removes Tags dialog and the Release Notes in the Help cover some of the other changes in this release. There is more going on under the cover, but we aren’t quite ready to talk about them yet.
Without further ado you can download the new release here.
