WordPress 1.2

Just as we’re getting ready to release WordPress 1.2, SixApart announces a new pricing structure for Movable Type that alienates a significant segment of their user base. As a result, WordPress is seeing lots of people switching our way from Movable Type. This is all well and good, but getting a flood of new users and being Slashdotted right before your biggest release to date is a bit overwhelming. Things have settled out, however, and we’re back on track for release next week. Welcome to our new users and new contributors.
