WP Commit Digest for Oct. 15 – Nov. 15

The past month has seen almost 150 commits. The bug hunt is responsible for many of those. Almost 100 bugs were squashed during the hunt. Amidst the bug fixing we managed to add some new features and refine some existing ones.

The WYSIWYG editor received lots of polishing. It is much more accessible thanks to Andy’s work. Andy also did lots of work on the image uploader. Images and other uploaded objects now can have their own permalinks and comments. Andy and Owen also created a Flickr plugin that provides nice integration with your Flickr photos.

I worked behind the scenes on database versioning and a persistent object cache. Users don’t really care about these since they’re not visible, but the changes should result in a faster, leaner, and more vigorous WordPress. Honest.

To wrap this up, here are a few development headlines from the last month.

  1. Man, I am burning with desire. I have promised myself not to upgrade until WP 1.6 is actually.. you know… released. But MAN, I want these features.

  2. Ryan,

    Great work on squishing the Cache bug. My test 1.6 site was affected by this and in keeping up with the mailing-list, I saw where you fixed it. I do a lot of behind the scenes IT stuff at my work, so I know what it’s like to be “seen but not heard”.


    Kyle, wp1.6 is unreal. It will be worth the wait.

  4. The real question is … will it actually have good import / export capabilities? Currently there is no native way to combine (permanently) two WP blogs and that is just craziness.

    Oh yeah, and when will it be done? 🙂
