PodPress 8.9 is under development, to make compatible with WP 2.6....
Seek3r announced that it would be released within 10 days (he said this a couple days ago!). He posted a request for bug reports on the MightySeek forum.
I also want to remind my fellow PodPress fans, this guy "seek3r" makes the plugin for free (like many of the plugin authors, and like WP itself, open source and no cost). I just think that is so cool of him, and genius really, to make this plugin for podcasting costing $0. You can make a PayPal donation to him, on the website linked above. Seek3r said he has been encouraged to work on it more (in his spare time, after work) by recent donations. I donated a few bucks to support this effort.
Please join other PodPress fans in pitching-in something if you agree.
