Having the company philosophy to use only software packaged as RPM,
we did package quite a bunch of WordPress Themes and Plugins.
As with this architecture, we cannot use the Web Interface for Update notification and installation, I wrote a script to go through our package subversion, check each plugin's version, and compare it with the information given from the wordpress api plugin info.
You could simply call, for example
and get the data nicely in a php serialized way.
Today I'm trying to run this, but I only get "No input file specified."
The Json output seems still to work(.json instead of .php) but to use it I had to rewrite my Scripts.
Before doing so, I'd like to know, is this behaviour a temporary bug that might get fixed some time, or will the Plugin Info not be available anymore in PHP Serialized format?
