The next major WordPress release was to be April 23rd and Matt Mullenweg has announced a delay.
Several of the new features, including the addition of tags, has proven to be a little more complex and trouble in the final testing phase than originally thought. They are hard at work fixing things and the announcement of the new release will come soon.
The list of new features and improvements is impressive, though. Here are some highlights of what to expect:
- Improved comment editing
- Multiple format comment feeds, including Atom
- phpmailer integrated for performance and maintainability
- Plugin Sandboxing to Test Drive Plugins
- Default and Classic WordPress Themes widgetized
I will have more information soon on the new tagging feature, as soon as they finish implementing and finalizing the process. Just to let all the fans of the Ultimate Tag Warrior WordPress Plugin know, they are working hard on making it compatible, allowing easy importing of the tags into the new tagging system.
So far, there is no hard estimate on when the new release will be out as the decision was just made today.
