WordPress 2 any good?

I noticed that Merlin has been working on upgrading the 43f site to Word Press 2. I've been holding off on the upgrade for my site until I hear that version 2 is really stable etc, or at least see a 2.1 release.

Has anyone tried WP 2? Merlin, if you're reading this, how has your changeover experience been?

WordPress Upgrade


I did the WordPress 2 upgrade now there's a 2.0.1 version (I let others deal with the first wave of bugs hehehe).

It went more smoothly than I'd expected. The only problems were the RSS feed was only showing comments, not content (but there was a ticket that showed how to fix this), and the annoyance of trying to combine Markdown with the new GUI editor. The editor can be toned down to "just a text box, file upload box and preview box" using a well hidden checkbox at the bottom of your user profile to say you prefer just text thanks.

Anyway, I'm considering that upgrade to have been a success now that's all sorted out.

The Podcast Feed


Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
