With 2.2 released, we’ve been busy with 2.3. The last two weeks have seen a barrage of activity. Much of the work has gone into the new taxonomy design. This is almost fully implemented and shaping up nicely. The tagging feature that was pulled from 2.2 is back in 2.3 using this much better design. Also, those who dislike how link and post categories are combined can take heart. They are separated in 2.3.
Housekeeping has been another focus. The files in wp-admin were reorganized to make things easier to find. Code formatting and style is also being cleaned up as we sweep through the files.
Several bundled libraries were updated to the latest versions. TinyMCE is now at 18.104.22.168, Prototype is at 1.5.1, and script.aculo.us is at 1.7.1 beta 2. More updates to script.aculo.us and an update for TinyMCE Spellchecker are on the way.
Post and page management received some love from Michael Adams. Managing your draft and private posts and pages is now much easier thanks to some handy filters. This is available on wordpress.com if you want to check it out.
As always, you can watch the timeline to see whats going on with development.
