WordPress next release, which was scheduled to be out on April 23rd has been delayed until further notice. Apparently they are still “polishing things up”, as Matt Mullenweg wrote on his blog some days ago.
Some of the new features announced include:
- Permalink redirection
- Improved comment editing
- Atom 1.0 support for feeds.
- Multiple format comment feeds, including Atom.
- Switched to jQuery for core JS, which is lighter and faster.
- Atom API support.
- Additional XML-RPC APIs for pages and such.
was integrated for performance and maintainability.
I will let you know as soon as the word is out.
