1.6 Features

  • Does anybody know if 1.6 is going to have integrated photoblogging functionality? I have been working on a Gallery Manager plugin for some time now (complete with admin pages and theme API), so I’m curious. If it does, I can just scrap it and wait for the new version. Please let me know, there’s no point in going on if nobody’s going to use it.

  • I would put money on the answer being a no.

    From the number of posts we get here about images, I would imagine your work would be welcomed 🙂

    (Caveat – I have NO inside knowledge of 1.6 , I just read a lot of WP related stuff)

    The features for the next version of WordPress are very much up in the air. Any discussion about 1.6 features is, unfortunately, premature. Version 1.6 has no official release date. If you’re close to finished with your plugin, I suspect a large number of people will be interested in it for WordPress 1.5.1.2.

    You’re welcome to join the WordPress hackers mailing list to discuss implementation details, and to participate in possible development.

    I’ll be releasing the first stable version next week, one way or the other. I have tried to keep the code (all 4000+ lines of it) WP compliant (-ish), but I’d really appreciate it if I could have some input from WordPress developers. I’d just like to know if I’m on the right track. Could you let me know how to join this mailing list?

    Thanks! I was looking for this.

    OK, I know, there is NO official release date for WP 1.6. But are there any HINTS?

    Like “Yes, in 2005”?

    Or “No, NOT in 2005”?

    Please, just a hint, if someone in the loop really has a clue. Come on. You know you want to tell us.

    Quoting Matt: “when its done”

    Heh. Now I can make my long range plans.

    Does anyone know if 1.6 will incorporate some of the performance patches that lightpress [http://lightpress.org/] is working on?

    I’ve nearly finished a new, and very customised WP site.

    Now I’m wondering if I should have bothered, as most of the plugins/hacks were to make it easier to add images.

    Any more clues on the possible release date… is it gonna be early 2006? late 2005? mid 2006?

    Not a clue. v1.6 is still in the “ALPHA-2-still-dont-use” stage, so it probably won’t be done any time soon.
