The paint is still wet – but it looks like it works 🙂
Some plugins (feedwordpress) look like they are broken.
The tags look like they are using a similar idea to the Drupal taxonomy concepts – should be interesting.
I’ve not blogged about WordPress patches and updates for a while – I’ve been just that busy.
This weekend another two patches – for 2.2.x and 2.0.x
So far so good – easy and clean updates.
Worth an upgrade too – looking at the code changes there seems to be a lot of additional checking and url handling safety.
From the dev lists:
The target release date for WordPress 2.2 is less than a month away, April 23rd.
Phew. Patch and relax. Update and relax. Patch and relax.
When Matt and the others from Automattic said they’d be stepping up the frequency of updates – I didn’t expect this 🙂
It’s good though. Lots of new features promised for 2.2 and especially 2.3/2.4 and beyond.
“Ella” is here.
A long beta program – and it looks sweet.
Download from here.
WordPress 2.0.7 – security fixes.
Kinda instantly obsoleted WordPress 2.0.6 – which in itself was bug and security fixes.
WordPress 2.1 still moves forward; beta 2 via svn is looking pretty sweet.
Hot on the heels of WordPress 2.0.6 release candidate – is WordPress 2.1 beta 1.
I tried the alpha from subversion on this blog a while ago; it looked promising. Now we are at beta 1.
You can get the beta from here; knowing the test and release team – it will be live in weeks.
Update time again – this time for another security issue.
Here’s the mail from wp-testers:
RC2 addresses the following vulnerability.
We also changed how we escape HTML attributes. Escaping is done with a new
This touched a lot of files so we need to do some broad testing to make sure we didn’t fat finger anything.
Should be GA soon; advisable to upgrade.
Another milestone approaches; WP 2.0.5.
Release Candidate 1 is here – it’s working so far for me.
So I’m in San Francisco at the WordPress Community geek-fest that is WordCamp.
It’s kinda interesting – the usual [x]camp format; the usual 80/20 mix of hackers and non-hackers; the lack of power outlets…
There are a lot of people here who are using WordPress and want more – there is certainly a wave of demand that could see the whole community become a lot stronger.
Spent time in a session this morning on ‘Helping out WordPress’ – the number 1 request is ‘help with support’. I’ll get with a few people and see what can really be done.
After working with Ximian for three years – I’m really wary of reliance on the community; I know it’s active; but without clout nothing moves.
Oh – and I gave out a stack of openSUSE 10.1 DVDs – as well as the link to the running WordPress on openSUSE article that I threw together. I was branded a dreadful person from corporate land for that. The folks at WordCamp who got the openSUSE DVDs were happy though.
As promised here is the ‘HOW-TO’ for running WordPress on openSUSE.
This is a simple three step process:
