How do I ping blog aggregators from WordPress? I have seen a discussion about it, but no conclusion. To my mind as a prospective WordPress user, this is an extremely high priority requirement. I would like to ping automatically from within WordPress just like I do from Movable Type. Unless it is there and I have just missed it, two questions:
1) Is there any hack for this that is usable today, and 2) is there an estimated date for when this function will be included in WordPress?
