WordPress up until now has enjoyed good success and popularity, however with the recent “train-wreck” final release of 2.5 this success is unraveling. First of all I don’t think anyone here would disagree that 2.5 final was released before it was ready. This is the first release that I have seen many discussion of downgrading and critical bugs and glitches. The Gallery and Image management is a mess if it works at all. Documentation for 2.5 is unfinished and even states as such. Documentation of the files is very unprofessional. Can anyone tell by a quick look which build of an individual file they have? What project it is, who last edited the file or what the licensing has? Coppermine, phpBB, SMF all have this type of information on every file – and yes even Moveable Type has this. The Admin-GUI by no means more accessible or more ordered. The developers for some reason decided to think that everyone uses a screen set at 1024 x 768 and to heck with all others. Functions like drag-drop functions were removed for no stated reason.
Maybe it is time for a split and to branch the code to a new project.
(Downgrading my WordPress soon or even moving to something else)
