Steve Castledine's blog template as shipped in Domino 7.0.2 and later is a useful template that can be used successfully for personal or team blogs (e.g. http://collaborationmatters.com, http://edbrill.com and many others) or for many other purposes where simple web content management is required, such as small corporate web sites.
However, since being shipped as part of 7.0.2 it is fair to say that development of the template (in terms of the versions available to the public) has practically ceased. Whilst the general blogging community using tools such as Wordpress, Nucleus and Movable Type are gaining ever more features, richer media support, easier template management etc., DominoBlog seems to be stuck on a annual or biannual update schedule where the necessity of multilingual support etc. is greatly holding back a useful tool.
Therefore, can I suggest that a way is found for DominoBlog to be decoupled from the Domino release schedules whilst still retaining its supported by IBM status?
