Another small step for Manila users…we can now include enclosure tags in our posts. So, I guess that means that if I ever create another Podcast I can just plunk it in my post without using the Feedburner feed I had set up for it. Nice.
As luck would have it, I was talking about just this capability with a teacher in my current Weblogs class here at my school. He wants to pilot Tablet PCs with his kids next year and is envisioning a paperless class where kids access work from his blog, complete it on their tablets, post to their own blog, and he fetches it via the RSS feed. Well, it appears, now he can. This obviously harkens back to a post a couple of weeks ago about using enclosures. Looks like I’m going to have to dig into it a bit more now.
But, not to be a spoiled sport, I wish Manila would also support easy comment previewing, easy off/on comments, easy public/private choice in posting, easy check box deleting of comments or content, more complex editorial permissions… Looks like Drupal is going for the ed market, and I’ve already talked about how much I like Word Press. Manila has so many good things going for it, but it just needs a few more tweaks and an overhaul in the intuitiveness department.

Love the, uh, flamingo? What’s the metaphor here ;o)
To be totally utterly honest I don’t think Manila is going to make it… too stuck and too little investment / development…
Come a little closer to the WP (MU) fire and warm your fingers a little, you can now simply set bandwidth / storage limits, push plugins, choose multiple themes, manage passwords adn soooo much more.
I had the Manila bug for a while but it’s been totally utterly extinguished!
(if only for the fact that I can’t subscribe to and post to these comemnts in the same click.. gah)
