Where's Open Blog v2?

A: There isn't one. Open Blog v2 should have been packaged with Codeigniter 2, however, Open Blog development stopped in 2010 and langished until Dec 2016.

What's going on with OB now?

A: We receive ownership of the code, name and domains in Dec 2016. We're rebuilding the blog software with the latest version of Codeigniter and some fun new things.

Will OB be release when Codeigniter 4 is released?

A: Yes, as soon as we can manage, Open Blog v4 will be released with Codeigniter 4.

How easy will it be to upgrade from Open Blog 3 to Open Blog 4

A: We don't know yet but we will make the upgrade path as easy as possible.
