New Hebrew Dates (2.0) released!

‍‍י״ב תמוז תש״ע - Thursday, June 24th, 2010

When it rains, it pours...

I just rewrote most of HebrewDates. The new version is 2.0.0, and is available at the Hebrew Dates release page.

There's basically no reason to use yesterday's 1.0.4 release.

New features:

  • Complete rewrite of the date identification; much more reliable
  • Code actually looks slightly sane now. I'm no longer embarrassed for someone to look at it (although it's not great...)
  • New get_the_hebrew_date() and the_hebrew_date() APIs, which can be used in any theme. The interception of the other calls, while much more robust now, still is not the ideal

Please let me know if there are any bugs. Archives should work, and some weird date formats should also be better (I no longer rely on PHP's strtotime, but have my own parsing logic).

HebrewDates fix for WordPress 3.0 (2010 theme)

‍‍י״א תמוז תש״ע - Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010

There's a fix out for Hebrew Dates, which correctly supports the 2010 theme used by default in WordPress 3.0. Now dates generated by either the_date() or get_the_date() are supported.

The new version is 1.0.4, and is available at the Hebrew Dates release page.

Hebrew Dates v1.0.3

‍‍כ״ז שבט תשס״ז - Wednesday, February 14th, 2007

Based on feedback from KosherJava (on the v1.0.2. release announcement), I've enhanced the currentHebrewDate() API in the Hebrew Dates plugin. It now accepts parameters to control how the date is printed.

Small Fix to HebrewDate plugin

‍‍כ״ה שבט תשס״ז - Tuesday, February 13th, 2007

I've released a small fix to the HebrewDate plugin. The new version is 1.0.2, and is available, at the regular place.

Hebrew Date v1.0.1

‍‍י״ד מרחשון תשס״ז - Sunday, November 5th, 2006

Based on an idea I "borrowed" from Jacob Fresco, I've added the ability to insert the current Hebrew Date (with sunset correction!) anywhere in a theme.

Simply add <?php if (function_exists('hebrewDateCurrent')) { hebrewDateCurrent();} ?> to a theme.

The code can be downloaded Hebrew Dates release page under the Software section.

The code needs some major cleanup, but not today...
