As explained earlier, there are three versions of WordPress, but two versions of actual core software. WordPress 1.5.2 is ready for the public to use, and the other, WordPress 1.6, is in alpha-soon-to-be-beta testing and hopefully coming to a computer near you soon.
So what is going on with WordPress 1.6? Well, we have the resources you need to follow to keep up-to-date on what is going on with WordPress 1.6.
Ryan Boren’s boren.nu site has an entire WordPress Category on WordPress development, status, and information. In a recent “WordPress Commit Digest”, he shares the current status of what is happening with WordPress 1.6. While Matt Mullenweg offers teasers and links on his site, you can get meat and potatoes information on Ryan’s site.
Owen Winkler is another developer working on WordPress and you can often find tidbits of information to tantalize your WordPress 1.6 desires, such as Better Every Day on the work being done on WordPress 1.6, coming changes in WordPress 1.6 permissions and user levels, and WordPress 1.6 feature updates and information.
For information on WordPress 1.6 as it relates to WordPressMU, Donncha O Caoimh, the leading developer of WordPressMU, has a blog with frequent updates on what’s happening as well as on his main site and the WordPressMU Development Blog.
