That’s right folks! (About 2 days late on my part.) The new version has been released to the masses. The first version 1.4.1 had very minor problems with regrades to ignoring admin visits and PHP 4 issues otherwise it was good to go. Automatic upgrades had problems as well, but those were quashed once the index.html files where deleted out of all the directories.

In any chance.. I pushed out 1.4.1.1 just a moment ago so you should start to see it your plugins folder. I worked with a few people to see if the older problems that were there still exist, but I can not fine anything like that. Hopefully this will be the last minor fix release.

Be sure to download it here and report any errors to the Woopra forums.

For the past week or so, I have been updating the Woopra WordPress Plugin. As of right now it’s current development version of 1.4.1 (currently running on this site) is working great. One of the main gripes I had with the earlier versions of the plugins is that is was all done with including and the functions were not ‘grouped together’.

After doing some looking at some other plugins that exists, I decided that it was better for it to be now moved into a class system since PHP version requirements will be going higher for WordPress in the near future and PHP itself versions are being outdated faster than I can keep installing them on this server.

With the release of WordPress 2.8 “Baker” starts the day of the new development of WordPress 2.9. A major component that is being upgraded for the development of WordPress 2.9 will be the media management system (i.e. Attachments). Others will be posted over time. This is just a small sampling of most of them.

  • Setting Page Revamp (ticket)
  • Media System Revamp
  • Dependency Checking (plugins, themes, etc.) (ticket)
  • Merging of WordPress and MU Systems

As for me… I will be heavily involved with development for 2.9 as I laid down “some” ground work for the new media system. Expect a revised Wireframes document on the subject in a few weeks as I team up with the core developers to outline the plans with them so the Wireframes will be perfect.

Suggesting for the new media system? Leave comments here! :)

Yes… a new way to follow me around, Twitter.

I signed up yesterday and gave it a whirl. Not bad since I been resisting it for a long time. I installed a BlackBerry application to allow me to tweet from my phone. Some people have their Twitter updates feed inside their’ WordPress blogs. At this moment I don’t plan on doing that since the blog would get crowded with short posts that are pointless other than this being a huge feed to keep track on what I post about. Who knows…

Anyway if you have Twitter and you want to follow me, go ahead and visit my Twitter page here. On the left hand side in the upper box (Site Tools) the direct link will always exist plus the link to the Twitter RSS feed as well.

*UPDATE* Twitter has fixed the picture uploading problem I have now have my profile icon activated. 😀
