According to Mark Jaquith, development continues on WordPress 2.2 and 2.1.1, but that doesn’t mean they’ve forgotten about the 2.0.x users who haven’t upgraded to the latest 2.1 series.
As part of the ongoing commitment to support WordPress 2.0.x until 2010, Mark and the other WordPress development team members are readying the release of WordPress 2.0.8.
For those of you who are into bleeding edge software distributions, download WordPress 2.0.8 RC1 and kick the tires a bit and help be apart of testing of one of the best blogging and content management software packages available.
For my software geek friends and readers, here’s what to expect in WordPress 2.0.8 Release Candidate 1:
- a security fix for wp_remote_fopen()
- better compatibility with PHP 5.2
- a fix for feed links when using a /%category%/ permalink structure
- misc HTML validation fixes
- misc obscure error fixes
I’m currently running WP 2.1 on Have Laptop Will Travel but still run 2.0.7 on some of my development blogs and sites while the kinks get worked out in the 2.1.x series.
