RSS Fixed

This is just a quick post to let everyone know that the RSS for this development blog has been fixed. We’ve been so busy adding great features to WordPress that it must have just slipped under the radar. On that I’d like to bring this blog back to more what it was originally intended: an informal constant stream of news regarding WordPress development. Things have been quiet here but there has been a ton of progress happening. Just a quick summary:

  • New options system, never edit a configuration file again.
  • Full Blogger API and MetaWeblog API; partial MT API support (so tools like Zempt work)
  • Numerous improvements to the administration interface

That’s just a peek. Right now I’m working on multiple category support and the last “must-have” feature before we put out the release is password-protected posts. What else? The Movable Type import is basically done, I just want to get multiple categories working first so no information is lost in the transition. There are a few other improvements underway that will most likely be in the next release, including quicktag improvements and some geographical integration but I’ll post more on that later. When? Good question, hard to say. The time we devote to the project can vary from week to week depending on, well, life. However I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that there will be a good beta out in about a week, and the release will follow after any bugs are worked out.

To address the dev blog problem, I am going to at the very least post development updates every weekend, even if it’s just to say that nothing has happened.
