New Hebrew Dates (2.0) released!

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).

  1. Chalom,

    I don’t know if you still work on that project but I have an issue :
    My website and the date format are in french, so the hebrew date is always wrong.
    For now, my solution is to disable the localization of date with a piece of code but the Gregorian date appears in english…
    Do you have an idea, how i can have the Gregorian date in french, just like without the plugin ?

    Thanks !
