Q: A Woopra Plugin Update? Will it work? Does it use fopen? A: Yes! Yes! No!

It’s been a while that I been able to get the the Woopra Plugin to get it back up and working like it has been envisioned. I had a good chunk of time over the past two days to work on it and it’s back and working perfectly — including some enhancements and some major code restructure.

The first meetup was very successful of the new year. Sun Microsystems came though for us and helped us out with some great space. Large room and three smaller room for other things. The main presentation hall held 113 people. We had close to the 78 people that RSVP to the event. Not sure of the real count, but we found out later the directions we had posted up brought people to the wrong location. (Fixed now..)

Right now there is no plans to have jQuery updated to 1.4.0 in WordPress 3.0. It is not impossible, but very unlikely due to fact that it does not cover the WordPress 3.0 Scope of Work.

Use jQuery at your own risk and if you do use it, unload jQuery 1.3 first before registering jQuery 1.4.

wp_deregister_script( 'jquery' );
wp_register_script( 'jquery', '<Location of jQuery 1.4>', false, '' );

I will bring this up at the next dev meeting, but as of right now there is no jQuery 1.4 in WordPress 3.0.x.

So I been doing a lot of work behind the scenes to most people. I been working on how to do WordPress consulting and design development part-time. (Maybe in the future… full-time).

Myself and Joe started FrakMedia! Productions a while back when we merged the Battlestar Wiki servers under the brand name FrakMedia! Production, but we are now a Limited Libability Corporation. yay! Both of our goals is to do this full time.

I’ll let you know a secret: This is the first design I did from nothing. This site (bugssite.org) I did use inspiration from another site, but it became my own once I recently did the CSS3/XHTML upgrade.

The site up came back online January 1st, so I we start the new year with a bang! For those who have seen the preview say the design is original and very fresh, and I hope you enjoy it as well for all your WordPress, design, and code needs! We might even sponsor a WordCamp or two in January to celebrate our launch.

That’s about it! Check out the new website and let me know what you think of it! :)

WordPress 2.9, Official

Posted by Shane

Wow. That was fast. Not less than 72 hours ago we released RC1 of 2.9 and we got such a good response from testing that we decided to skip the two week testing period for a release of WordPress 2.9 “Carmen”. Early Holiday Present. So get it today using the automatic upgrade feature.

Expect WordPress 3.0 released around the spring time because of the large changes to the core including WPMU integration and more media stuff (yay!).

Have a very safe holidays!

A quick note: If you run a stand-alone version, not hosted on WordPress.com, be sure you have at least MySQL version 4.1.2.  All backwards compatibility was taken out of 2.9.

WordPress 2.9 RC1 is out and ready for use and abuse! Please update all live sites using WordPress to this version so we can now get a huge sampling on any other errors before we mark it ‘GOLD’!. Be sure to submit tickets to the trac site so we know about them.

The faster we can get reports back, the faster we can give you an early present for the holidays and for the New Year!

Translators: You have two weeks to get your translations into the system before Gold. Thanks!
