WordPress news for this week:
- WordPress 2.5 is now in feature freeze. No more new features will be added. Concentration will be on fixing bugs, polishing up the new admin design, and finishing off the new features that are already in. March 10th as the release date.
- There’s a new WordPress Development Blog, a bit different from the “official” WordPress Development Blog. This new Prologue theme-based blog is more about helping developers find and fix bugs, and less about official announcements of security issues, etc.
- Chris Johnston was nice enough to put up a WordPress 2.5 demonstration blog so people could see what version 2.5 looked like and how it behaved, except it was hacked and now points to some foreign language domain having something to do with casinos. No, I’m not linking to it.
- In the sidebar you’ll find this last week’s poll question, “Is WordPress Insecure by Design?”
- In WordPress.com news, Lorelle explains how a battery failure caused all of the posts meant to be published in the future were mistakenly published last week, and puts her own layman’s spin on WordPress.com’s Terms of Service.
- Our interview with Lisa Sabin-Wilson, author of WordPress for Dummies and owner, founder and creative director of E.Webscapes Blog Design service.
