VistaBase v3 rolls out

July 15th, 2006 by Zack Whittaker

Just wanted you to know that tonight at 8pm British Summertime, I uploaded and activated my new version
of my Windows Vista knowledge base. It’s designed to help users tweak, understand and customise Vista, as
well as for Windows Server “Longhorn”, Windows Internet Explorer 7, and other “Longhorn” technologies
such as .NET Framework 3.0 (previously codenamed WinFX).

I’ve received some great feedback from people – and also some critism which is why I pushed forward the new
release of the site, to make it easier for anyone regardless of browser, race, background, gender or operating
system to view it šŸ™‚

There’s an RSS feed which I’ll be updating every so often – the entire site is now Firefox supported (and a huge
thanks to Dean, a fellow blogger here who helped me iron out some major Firefox issues at the end of it…
little did I know what trouble a single backslash could cause in my code!), and the site is generally much easier
to see… with no framesets or tables – pure HTML, CSS and a little bit of PHP where I felt adventurous!

If you want to support VistaBase – please send in your questions so I can answer them and put them
on there. The more support from users, the bigger and better the knowledge base can become! šŸ™‚
