I’ll be there, be sure to say hi.
I got a warning today about the smtp.gmail.com SSL cert, turns out it expired today: Tuesday, July 29, 2008 10:58:07 AM US/Mountain. If you’ve got a contact with the Gmail team can you let them know? Thanks.
Version 1.4.1 of the Prologue WordPress theme is now available. Prologue is in the theme directory now, so if you aren’t into using Subversion this is the easiest way to grab the new version. Here’s the list of changes since the 1.3 release:
If you’ve been having problems with WordPress 2.6 and Prologue please give this version a try before sending in any new problem reports.
The word is that PHP 5.3 will bring some significant speed improvements. Who wouldn’t want their WordPress site to be 15% faster?
Raanan has outlined the near future of the WordPress for iPhone app. The most interesting part though? The source code for the app is now available at http://iphone.svn.wordpress.org/. You can also browse the repository via Trac at http://iphone.trac.wordpress.org/browser.
If you’ve found a bug or have a new feature to suggest, go file a new ticket. User authentication is done with WordPress.org accounts.
Were live! WordPress for iPhone just launched on the App Store. Download it now and get to blogging. Well have more information about the project and how you can contribute soon.
This WordPress for iPhone app uses XML-RPC to post to your blog, so if you are using WordPress 2.6 then make sure you have it enabled under the Settings -> Writing section in wp-admin.
Version 1.0 is just the beginning, we’re already planning for new features.
Bringing the new theme directory under the WordPress extend umbrella allowed us to take advantage of all the infrastructure that has already been built up to support WordPress.org. If youve browsed through the plugin directory, youll feel right at home in the new theme directory.
Since announcing this last night we’ve had a lot of new theme submissions. So far the responses I’ve seen have been very positive and excited about having a new central home for WordPress themes.
the community of implementors has agreed that were all going to refer to the protocol specified in RFC 5023 as AtomPub and nothing else. Please co-operate.
WordPress 2.6 has been released.
For those of you interested in keeping up with XML-RPC & AtomPub changes in WordPress, here’s what has changed from 2.5.1 to 2.6:
Since the story around disabling XML-RPC & AtomPub by default has gone through a few twists, I’ll re-state the current situation: new installs of WordPress will have XML-RPC and AtomPub access disabled by default, upgrades of WordPress to version 2.6 from previous versions will not have XML-RPC and AtomPub disabled as part of the upgrade process. There is no check box for enabling these services during the install or upgrade. The process for turning them back on are simple check boxes in wp-admin under Settings -> Writing.
On the security front, there are no known security issues in XML-RPC or AtomPub. If you think you’ve discovered one please email the details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Another point that I’ve seen a few folks bring up is the feeling that this is just the first step in removing XML-RPC and/or AtomPub entirely or that they’ll stop getting new features. These features are not going away and as for continued development and new features, go back and read the top of this post. That said, we can definitely use more people looking at the XML-RPC and AtomPub code.
If you are interested in XML-RPC/AtomPub, please come join us on the wp-xmlrpc email list.
