Hello wonderful and caring community,
We could use some help with qa on 1.6. It is getting close. I have two tiny features left (don't worry Kaj, I will get those widget changes in before we release like I promised) and a handful of bugs. Perhaps the more daring of you might be open to grabbing a copy of trunk now that things are more or less stable and letting us know where things are great and where they blow up!
The changelog is totally incomplete as I need to get back to work and can't transcribe everything from redmine. I'll make sure its polished before we release 1.6. That said, this should give you an idea what we have been up to.
As for what's next, we'll fix bugs on 1.6 once it goes out and for 1.7 move this into custom post types once 3.0 is out and stable (any day).
I want to thank those of you who have submitted patches, translations and more. You rock and are truly what I love about the wordpress community.
If you are going to be at wordcamp SF this Saturday, look me up. Ping me on twitter @justlikeair.
