As I mentioned in a previous post, WordPress 2.9 has been declared feature frozen with the exception of three different features. These are oEmbeds, Post Thumbnails, and the new media user interface.

Meanwhile, Viper007bond has written a detailed article behind the oEmbed feature he has been developing to include into the core of WordPress 2.9. In a nutshell, oEmbeds will make it easier to embed remote content such as videos into your site.

There are a number of options available to publish articles to your blog outside of your WordPress Write panel such as through XML-RPC via a third party blogging client or through an application such as the one available for the iPhone. However, did you know that you can also publish posts through email? It’s true! The feature has been around for quite some time. For how long I’m not sure because I was unable to track down when it became a core feature but it looks like it has been around since 1.5 or below. For directions on how to use this unique feature, I recommend reading this comprehensive article on the Codex entitled Blog By Email.
