Wizard of WordPress: Speaking of Matt and WordPress 2.2, CNET’s Rafe Needleman sits down with Matt for a video interview and delves into a lot more than just WordPress. The interview is divided into two parts. The first part, linked above, deals mostly with blogging in general, money from blogging, US candidate blogs Matt’s opinions on the blogosphere. The second part deals more with WordPress, new version 2.2, widgets, Web 2.0, Akismet and the like. The title for the second interview really threw me off and I won’t ruin the surprise any further. Matt is a really personable and articulate video interviewee and I am sure his presentations are just as much fun to attend. Every time I listen to him speak on almost any topic about the web, his knowledge and his stance really complement each other.

    So does anyone know if this release breaks pending plugins. I’ve been eagerly awaiting a Real Estate plugin on and I cant take any more delays. Please say this news isn’t bad.

    Yes I am mostly worried about plugin compatibility between WP 2.1.x and 2.2.x. How can we find out what might break what?

    It certainly will raise some “issues” with existing plugins like Sidebar Widgets and then cause some problems with themes like tiga.

    Suggest testing locally first before upgrading at the server end.

    The nice thing about this release is that if you want to enable a plugin and it goes haywire, then WP won’t allow it to be activated. My advise is to definitely be sure you’re using the latest UTW if you’re using it. It did cease to work against a nightly build for me about mid April. The next version of UTW worked like a charm.
