    Did I miss some vital piece of info?

    I though 2.0 was being released today...

    Well, considering "today" is relative to where you are on the planet... Most of the developers are in the US, either central or pacific time zones, so you may not see an announcement for several more hours. And nothing is set in stone, as far as I know, so if they determine the product not quite ready, it's their prerogative.

    Thanks :D

    It's nearly 5pm in Australia so I though everyone in the US should be up and about by now. I'm not good with time though :P

    I did win a bet today. I knew it wouldn't be posted in '2 days' as stated in the US.

    Where did you see that? The official release date has been the 26th since it was reported as such on the 21st.

    As for the release being today (the 26th), we still have 23 hours left from where I'm sitting and 21 hours left from where Matt usually hangs his hat, so please give him some time. And, as miklb said, "Nothing is set in stone, as far as I know, so if they determine the product not quite ready, it's their prerogative."

    I think that the scheduled downtime gives a clue, but whether it's a positive sign or a negative sign -- well, that's yet to be discovered. It's too early to Slashdot anything.

    sigh.... siting here in Budapest (10:21am) waiting for the Yanks to wake up! Of course, they've probably been coding all night, fell asleep on their keyboards, and will miss the release date. :-)

    macmanx, I'm excited that's all :) I'm sure everyone's not wanting to be rude, they're just looking forward to their belated Christmas present ;)

    Thanks cnbombfans, you should come visit here someday :)

    The excitement is good. I just don't want anyone posting here with a complete lack of patience.

    If you're in any time zone ahead of Matt's, you may have to wait for the 27th to download WordPress v2.0.

    Remember, you want to give Matt and the other developers enough time to release a fairly stable version of WordPress v2.0.

    "completely bug-free version of WordPress v2.0"

    Sorry macmanx but that made me laugh and cry at the same time :)

    We'll be around here a lot later !

    And if you are reading this and you have not done so:

    BACKUP YOUR DATABASE

    BACKUP ALL YOUR WORDPRESS FILES

    THIS IS ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL

    (If it wasn't, why would I and others be saying this so many times ?)

    I'd recommend you people subscribe to the wp-commits mailing list, and wait for the version bump check-in to happen :-).

    http://lists.automattic.com/mailman/listinfo/wp-svn

    Alternatively, just keep an eye on the bottom of http://comox.textdrive.com/pipermail/wp-svn/2005-December/date.html and wait for the version bump checkin ;-).

    As a further tip to readers:

    WORDPRESS 2 BREAKS SOME PLUGINS AND IS BROKEN BY OTHER PLUGINS

    DOWNLOAD THE LASTEST VERSION OF ALL OF YOUR PLUGINS BEFORE YOU UPGRADE

    Backup Data. Save yourself the headaches of relying solely on plugins and just copy your wp data to your desktop aswell. so to make sure it is correct. Also backup your mysql db's.

    cnbombfans: It's currently 5AM mountain time. We don't know when Matt will do it, he's probably asleep right now.

    I invite you to read my post just above yours and you can be on the bleeding edge of updates.
