“There are still a few outstanding items I’d like to get to before releasing 1.0 on the 1st of 2004 and I’m very much looking forward to working on those in the next few days.”
That is a direct quote from a post Matt made to the developers blog last week.
I agree with you about not wanting your blog to mess up on upgrade. I have gotten my blog exactly as I like it and am willing to upgrade if the contents and aesthetics do not get radically altered.
I’m also waiting for the new version. I’ve been testing some new features and add-ons to my site and will be moving my blog to my root directory…but I want to release everything when I get the new version up and running. There are a lot of new features that I am looking forward to!
