Owen and Robert have put together a nice cron implementation for WP.  Internally, this is used to schedule future posts.  It is also available to plugin authors who want to be able to schedule events.  Check out the in-progress API.

  2. Ryan,

    I think it is coming along really well. Are there many limitations to what you can do with it, such as things to schedule or how often?


  3. Please, *please* consider including automatic code updates for those of us without shell access.

    Especially useful for those must have security updates.
