-Shimmie Alpha
-~~~~~~~~~~~~~
-If you're reading this on github and looking for the stable version, go
-to the top of the page -> switch branches -> pick a stable branch. To do
-similarly with a git clone, "git checkout -b my_2.X origin/branch_2.X"
-
-This code is for people who want to write extensions compatible with the
-next version of shimmie. You can run a production site with it if you're
-feeling brave, but it's not recommended.
-
-If there is a feature here, and not in the stable branch, that's probably
-because the feature doesn't work yet :P
-
-
-Requirements
-~~~~~~~~~~~~
-MySQL 4.1+ (with experimental support for PostgreSQL 8+ and SQLite 3)
-PHP 5.2+
-GD or ImageMagick
-
-
-Installation
-~~~~~~~~~~~~
-1) Create a blank database
-2) Unzip shimmie into a folder on the web host
-3) Visit the folder with a web browser
-4) Enter the location of the database
-5) Click "install". Hopefully you'll end up at the welcome screen; if
- not, you should be given instructions on how to fix any errors~
-
-
-Upgrade from 2.3.X
-~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
-The database connection setting in config.php has changed; now using
-PDO DSN format rather than ADODB URI:
-
- OLD: $database_dsn = "<proto>://<username>:<password>@<host>/<database>";
- NEW: define("DATABASE_DSN", "<proto>:user=<username>;password=<password>;host=<host>;dbname=<database>");
-
-The rest should be automatic, just unzip into a clean folder and copy across
-config.php, images and thumbs folders from the old version. This
-includes automatically messing with the database -- back it up first!
-
-
-Upgrade from earlier versions
-~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
-I very much recommend going via each major release in turn (eg, 2.0.6
--> 2.1.3 -> 2.2.4 -> 2.3.0 rather than 2.0.6 -> 2.3.0). While the basic
-database and file formats haven't changed *completely*, it's different
-enough to be a pain.
-
-
-Development Info
-~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
-http://shimmie.shishnet.org/doc/
-
-Please tell me if those docs are lacking in any way, so that they can be
-improved for the next person who uses them

-
-Licence
-~~~~~~~
-All code is GPLv2 unless mentioned otherwise; ie, if you give shimmie to
-someone else, you have to give them the source (which should be easy, as PHP
-is an interpreted language...). If you want to add customisations to your own
-site, then those customisations belong to you, and you can do what you want
-with them.

+
+My own version of Shimmie2.
+
+My plans for it:
+* Phase out HTML4 code/practices/funky css in favor of xHTML 1.1
+* Phase out jQuery, replace it with MooTools
+* Clean up the PHP a bit, bring it full-way into PHP5
+* Add an option to have the site sent along with the `application/xhtml+xml` mimetype (since this could break new extensions written with invalid xHTML, it'll be disabled by default).
