Nicked a horrible bug on the Markdown package of the release candidate that returned a blank page after editing a post/article. The corrected file is now up for downloading. ;-)

I'll be releasing a release candidate for the upcoming 1.2 release of the script some time this week. . This release has some major changes to it starting right from the database layout. Now that is a MAJOR release. Amongst the changes is the addition of an EDITOR (wow!). So watch this space.

P.S: The project's Sourceforge project is here.
