For those of you who may not have heard, it was recently discovered that the popular All In One SEO Plugin for WordPress would be no longer updated or supported past WordPress 2.5.1. The plugin is currently compatible with 2.5.1 but may not work with future versions of WordPress.
However, I have managed to get a hold of the plugin author and he informed me that he believes the plugin will not die. He is currently in discussions with a number of other developers to continue maintenance of the plugin. He also expressed interest in the idea of having the plugin integrated into the core of WordPress.
It looks like the plugin has found a new home. A WordPress.org user who goes by the username hallsofmontezuma who is also the plugin author of the WP Security Scan plugin as well as the SMS Text Message plugin has taken over the development of the All In One SEO Plugin. The plugin can now be found on the Semper Fi Web Design website.
I want to personally extend a hearty thanks to Uberdose who was the original author of the plugin. You can’t talk about WordPress and SEO without mentioning the All In One SEO Plugin. Thanks for deciding not to stop the project but instead, found a new home for it.
I learned about the new plugin author via the Imbloggingthat blog.
