Updates and Bug Fixes for February 12th

Today’s release brings a number of updates to Blogger:

  • Clearer identity options on the comment form, which now highlights some of the more popular OpenID providers more obviously.
  • Transliteration is now available in Kannada, Malayalam, Tamil, and Telugu as well as Hindi
  • Posts with more than 200 comments have them split across multiple pages.

  • Improved international support in the post editor’s date and time fields
  • Compatibility fixes for Picasa’s BlogThis! button
