    Include a possibility to manage future events and display them as a category for example.
    It means the possibility to publish posts with a date in the future and the possibility for this kind of post to be archived as the "normal" posts are.
    Coul be useful to annouce and be able to find concert dates for example.

    This would be great. They could be spiced with hCard (see idea about microformats).

    An easy way to set whether WP should display future posts, both blog wide, and for specific categories, seems to be one of the most common issues people have. While there are plug-ins that try to address this for 'Events' turning this into a general Admin option would be more flexible, and not presume people just want this for events.

    I think the two ideas vaguely coincide! :)

    This thread looks like it is one year old, so I don't know if this was not possible back then and got fixed, but as far as I know, in the latest version of WP (and I think since 2.4 or 2.5) this is possible, the only down side of it is that the permalink will reflect the date of the day the post was saved, for example, if I write a post on the 2008/12/31 to be published on 2111/12/31, the permalink still looks like "my-crazy-blog.com/2008/12/31/my-crazy-title". This, I think, is a bug.

    There are a number of plugins in the wordpress.org repo that enable event management. In any case, you shouldn't use future publish to ID an event date, you should use a custom field.
