Ghost 0.3.1 Maintenance Release

Just one short week after the first release of Ghost, today I'm pleased to announce Ghost 0.3.1, which is a maintenance release.

We always knew that after some rigorous testing by thousands of people, we would inevitably find some issues in the first release. Today, we're releasing fixes for those issues.

  • [Fixes] Pagination partial in theme not overriding the default
  • [Fixes] Sendmail auto-detection
  • [Fixes] Date keyboard shortcut crashing the browser
  • [Fixes] URL-based image uploads saving in the wrong place
  • [Fixes] Admin redirect resulting in double slash
  • [Fixes] Broken help & support link
  • [Fixes] Overly detailed meta generator tag, now only 2 decimals
  • [Adds] Validation of config.js
  • [Adds] Full content in RSS feeds
  • [Adds] Support for embedded gists in Casper
