Simple date and category-driven Web publishing system.

'beacon' is a simple date and category-driven Web site publishing system. It looks like a blog, but behaves like a Wiki. It features Wiki article formatting and linking, hierarchical categorisation of articles, customisable menus, file upload and inclusion in article content, RSS feeds, article commenting, open or restricted editing, a templated design, Captcha security, a database abstraction layer (works with many types of databases), multilingual support (content and interface), and spell checking, all in a 1MB footprint.
