For all of you who use the stand-alone version of WordPress, WordPress 2.5 is released tomorrow, March 10.
This looks to be a substantial release with a lot of new cool features.
To see what is coming for WordPress 2.5, check out the official WordPress site.
To see a discussion and summary, check out the blog post in the Blog Herald by Lorelle VanFossen, WordPress 2.5 in Two Weeks, New Hot Media Library, Instant Upgrades, Theme Designers Lack Inspiration, More Plugin Vulnerabilities Found.
I haven’t downloaded any of the betas, but I will be updating this as soon as I can.
My sister in-law just moved from New York City to Madison, Wisc., and she has started a blog to share her experiences moving from one of the biggest cities in the world, to a decent size city in the Midwest.
You can find her posts at Big Apple Cheese.
The writing is great and the posts are pretty interesting describing the differences between the two cities.
Take some time and enjoy.
Because of holidays and changes in coding, the WordPress development team is going to skip its next release and combine everything into version 2.5.
They say they have some good things coming and changes to the admin area.
I look forward to this new release.
You can read more on the Weblog Tools Collection, 2.4 Skipped 2.5 is next.
There is a security update for WordPress, version 2.3.2.
According to their post today, it fixes some urgent security problems.
WordPress 2.3.2 is an urgent security release that fixes a bug that can be used to expose your draft posts. 2.3.2 also suppresses some error messages that can give away information about your database table structure and limits and stops some information leaks in the XML-RPC and APP implementations. Get 2.3.2 now to protect your blog from these disclosures.
Download 2.3.2 here.
I have a new theme for this blog.
I am using Blue Zinfandel theme by Brian Gardner.
It looks sharp and I like it. I just need to figure out how to add a photo to the top of it. I’ll see how I can do that over the next week.
Let me know what you think.
I posted earlier on my Tumblog that Twitter was down.
Twitter needs to improve on their reliablity if they want to stay on top. Otherwise they will get overtaken. Users will only stand for that for so long.
What are your thoughts?
Well I am trying Twitter to see how it works.
I have resisted it so far, but the ease it provides to publish quick thoughts and rambles makes it easy to use.
I am still going back and forth trying to decide if Twitter or Pownce is better, but for now, it is Twitter. Who knows, I might use both.
I have installed Twitter Tools by Alex King and will be using that. It looks the most functional and provides the best services.
Let me know what you think and let me know if you prefer Twitter or Pownce and why.
Matt Mullenweg, the founder of WordPress was interviewed by WebProNews.com at Blog World Expo in Las Vegas yesterday.
The post by email appears to be working. It is nice to finally have this option to post by email.
I travel a lot and have a good chance to think when I am on the plane. I can develop a thought on my Blackberry and it will post when I land.
I am glad that this is finally working.
Well this is the anniversary of my first post of this blog, Mile High Soapbox.
It is fun and I really enjoy doing this. It gives me a way to write about things I enjoy and sometimes vent about things that are making me mad.
As we move into the second year of this blog, I am going to be trying to focus and write more and write better.
I hope you will keep visiting and reading and let me know what you think. Your comments are always appreciated, a good dialog is always good.
