The Geekier Side Of WordPress 2.9

November 28th, 2009

If you’re a developer and need to know some of the geekier bits coming down the pipe in WordPress 2.9, Joost De Valks article should fit the bill. In it, he lists a number of things that developers should pay attention to such as enhancements to wp_query, upgraded TinyMCE editor, performance updates to the options table and much more.

WordPress 2.9 is currently at beta 1 stage. If you are one of the beta testers for 2.9, let me know how it’s gone for you so far.

        I would like to see it in action soon, but the thing is like many i am sick and tired or upgrading again and again.

          and again and again. lol.

          Thank the developers for the easy updates though and at least this is a live and thriving project with a lot of pointers, help and documentation.

          I think it makes it hard for the plug-in developers to keep up sometimes. Just as I get all the plug-ins playing well together there is a update and something breaks. grrrrr. I would still rather have the annoyance of frequent updates to no fixes or no support at all.

    The downside I’ve seen so far is that they media library will add your post thumbnail to the gallery, making it show up along with the other images.
