h3. CURRENT VERSION: 1.0 (I am cxurrently upgrading the version to use Rails 4.x instead of Rails 2.3.x)
Instructions to come for the new version…
Simple Blog has the following technical requirements:
1. Ruby 2.0 2. Rails 4.x
*You may exclude this but you will need to contact me at email@example.com for instructions how to. Excluding memcached will strongly effect the performance why I do not recommend it.
If you have any questions or comments, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
