For those that don’t know, DD32 or Dion Hulse has been granted core commit access to the WordPress project. Just from an outside looking in view, I think DD32 is more than deserving of this position as his contributions in and outside of the core have helped many. On new commit messages you might start seeing a familiar name, DD32 aka Dion Hulse. He’ll be initially focusing on the areas he’s already contributed a ton to like automatic upgrades and HTTP. He has been a mentor to many and is not scared to jump into any part of the code keeping a positive outlook no matter how far down the rabbit hole he ends up. If we look deeper into Matts post, this will be a trend for 2010. More people will be granted commit access to the core as a recognition of trust. I think this is a good […]

In the past year or so, you may have heard of the term ‘Canonical Plugins‘ being used throughout the community. Back in early December, a poll was published that goes into more detail regarding the idea of Canonical Plugins and what to call them. The poll has since closed without making the results viewable but from what I understand, the name for these plugins going into the future will be ‘Core Plugins‘. Core plugins are community developed and encourage collaboration with multiple developers to satisfy the most popular functionality requests that would not make it into the Core of WordPress. These plugins would be developed alongside the core of WordPress to ensure compatibility, coding standards are met, secure code, etc. To highlight these plugins, a screen would be added to the plugins page in the back-end of WordPress to highlight these special plugins. Everything sounds great right? Let’s take a […]

Will the Core Update feature in WordPress 2.7 work on your webhosting account? One way to find out is to view the new article in the Codex entitled “Core Update Host Compatibility“. This article serves as a central location to discover whether or not the Core Update feature works with a specific web hosting company. The article is divided up into three sections and lists webhosting companies in alphabetical order: Working Hosts, No Issues Works With Caveats Doesn’t Work Keep in mind that: It is important to note that the update feature will not work when updating to Version 2.7, but rather will work for Versions released AFTER 2.7 (e.g. upgrading from 2.7 to 2.7.1)! If you discover during the beta test period that the core update feature works on your webhosting account, please add the company to the Codex article within the appropriate section.

When WordPress 2.3 was released into the wild, one of the new features was an update notification which told you when there was a new version of WordPress or a plugin available for download. This was possible thanks to the API service called api.wordpress.org. Earlier this year, I had the privilege of attending WordCamp Dallas where WordPress 2.5 was unveiled to the world. I’ll personally never forget that day, but when Matt showcased the automatic plugin upgrader, it confirmed my suspicions back when 2.3 was released as to where at least some aspects of WordPress were headed. During some downtime at the event, I pulled Matt aside and asked if him if the team was going to end up heavily using the API to not only upgrade plugins, but upgrade the core and also install themes. I don’t remember exactly what he said, but never the less, that is indeed […]
