You can now specify a custom date/time format in your blog translation document. This is useful if your blog server is based in a location where the regional setting are different from your home location ( Example : Server based in USA but home location is Ireland. ).
As the Date/Time format is part of the translation document you also have the ability to show the correct date/time format to your visitor based on their web browsers regional settings. So if you have a German translation document you can set the custom date format to DD.MM.YY so visitors from germany will see a date format that they are used to while visitors from the USA will see MM/DD/YYYY.
The MetaWeblogAPI implementation has been expanded to take into account the User Profiles in BlogSphere. You can now specify a username and password in each User Profile document so when you log in via the API it will know who you are able be able to set the Entry Author name and default location correctly.
The API has also been customized to look for a 'Location' in the request XML. if it finds a location it will use it instead of the default location from the user profile. This feature has been added specifically for BBMetaBlog by Jason Hook.
