I just updated the CakeNews site I talked about earlier. The latest version has some simple CSS to it, as well as a 2 new features: Showing the 10 latest events in the world of CakePHP + a form to use the search. I also added the Google Groups feed that contains changes to tickets.

So for all of you who want to stay up to date about everything CakePHP, check it out:

I also added a cron job that will update the site every 20 minutes. Much nicer then the 2 hours cache timeout I used before ; ).

Nice. I would use another color than red for the titles as red is usually used for errors or warnings.

Hey Daniel, yeah I might do some work on the css for the next update. What color would you like to see?

I'll also release the RSS feed parsing code pretty soon.
