[closed] Stable release of multiblog version (8 posts)

    Is there a stable release available for the multiblog version (mu.wordpress.org) instead of the 1.3 alpha? I don't have the know how to dissect this and as soon as I get one problem fixed I seem to be spawning (or perhaps just uncovering) another. 1.21 is the current stable release, right? Is there a 1.21 of the multiblog version?

    They tend to stay in step with the standard WP codebase (so that 0.1.3 matches 1.3, 0.1.2 to 1.2). The numbering is just because WPMU is still considered experimental (even if rather stable). Anyway, go here:
    And scroll down to the end of the page for earlier releases.

    Is there a plan to integrate the multiblog features as standard? It seems from http://www.asymptomatic.net/blogbreakdown.htm - (and http://www.asymptomatic.net/archives/2004/05/28/568/blogware-choice ) that the lack of this feature was the only thing that might make people choose a different tool.
    I am aware that I can do multiple installs, and that they are quick to do.

    What I fear is that the multiblog version is doing two things instead of just one. They're doing multi-blog _and_ smarty template integration. I think doing the smarty thing may be at odds with the main branch's "smaller faster better" ideals, and therefore may have a hard time finding it's way into the main distribution. Maybe I'm way off.

    The big problem I have is that apache says mod_rewrite is on, but wordpress MU doesn't agree.. so I can't even evaluate it. :( Very sad. This may also be at odds with the "works almost everywhere, setup in 2 steps" ideals of the main branch. The beauty of WP is how easy it is to get going. The MU branch is just more technically challenging to get going...

    if they can make it work without mod rewrite and without smarty, I think there'd be little reason to keep it out of the main branch. Again, I may be way off, but that's how it looks from here.

    Also, I think "web application of the year" is a well deserved title, but with multi-blogs, I think it would be more like "Unstoppable force"... which is even better. Or... "Industry Standard"
