Final Release Candidate

Posted May 20, 2004 by Matt Mullenweg. Filed under Releases.

A few issues came up with the last release candidate that made it important to test out the latest changes in a final beta release. Trust me, I’m as anxious as all of you to get my hands on a final 1.2 but this last bit of testing will help us ensure that the much-anticipated 1.2 release is as stable as possible. You can download the release candidate from the beta directory. Timely feedback is crucial at this point, as is reporting on the beta forums. I’ve ugraded a half-dozen blogs I run to this release and I expect it to be near-identical to the final 1.2. Thanks for your patience!

  13. Sub Category Behavior – my imagination?
    So, take a quick look at the sidebar to the right. You should notice three categories that are related to eath other in a nested fashion. That is to say, “Hard Normal Daddy” is a subset of “Squarepusher” is a subset of “Music.”
