Ghost, the blogging platform that I am using, and you are reading has been updated to 0.4 (still a very early platform), this update brings with it:
- Static Pages (!)
- Unsaved post verification
- Featured Post
The overall largest of these being Static Pages (that won't be listed as blog post). This update is extremely nice but there are still lots of things missing.
- Native spell checking
- Native coment system (the one you see is custom)
- Multiple authors
- Offline authoring (currently making my own)
Complete 0.4 Release notes
Ghost is luckily open source and easy to edit/design/tinker with. If you are looking for a blogging platform that is current, open and sleek, I would suggest Ghost.
