This version is a successor to the first public release of the code, which was version 0.0.9.7. As you may know, pacificpelican.us/cms is free software–it is a URL shortening, text file creation, and photo/file management script written in PHP and released under the GNU General Public License, version 2 or later. Either a copy of the latest released version, or an even newer, more unstable development snapshot of the pacificpelican.us/cms code may be found at this gist.github.com page. Listen to episodes four and six of the djm blog podcast to hear some discussion about the project, which is brought to you by lovebirdsconsulting.com and me, Daniel J. McKeown. The 0.0.9 series of the project is dedicated to the memory of Striker and Ava the parakeets.
changes for 0.0.9.9
-added simple text file creation capability
-added post list for viewing text file content
-added simplistic perma-link view for text file content
-changed DTD from HTML 4 to HTML5
-created corecontent div to enclose all info between the menu and the footer (w/r/t “known issues” for 0.0.9.7)
-code layout and spacing improvements
-text post perma-links have an improved [from development version] view (“p” GET parameter replaces development “t” GET parameter to identify posts); they now display on multiple lines via an array
-posts titles now (improved from dev version 0.0.9.8) have meaningful titles (i.e. “Post Title | siteURL.com”)
-posts list includes a link to the raw text file (different from dev version 0.0.9.8), because why not?

–known issues and bugs for pacificpelican.us/cms version 0.0.9.8 [importance/category]
-the post list just lists all the links no matter how many there are [medium/usability]
-the link list just lists all the links no matter how many; it can use the “count” parameter (hidden feature) but the count starts at the oldest URL and thus does not list the latest if there is a large number [medium/usability]
-the file list offers a UI to set the “count” parameter, and this works somewhat, but the order of the files listed is somewhat unpredictable [medium/usability]
-some sort of +1 problem with the URL shortener: the first URL shortened (http://example.com/?r=0) does not work; after the first one however the URL redirecting works fine [low/usability]
-also (in relation to the previous issue) the link list returns error message when there are no shortened URLs [low/usability]
-canonical URLs should (maybe) find and remove any “www.” from themselves [very low/SEO]
