Dougal Campbell's geek ramblings

WordPress, web development, and world domination.

WordPress 2.6.1-beta1

I’m surprised that I haven’t seen mention of this from other channels yet (official or unofficial), but two days ago, SVN revision 8561 of the WordPress 2.6 branch was labled as WordPress version 2.6.1-beta1. The log messages reveal that most changes since the 2.6 release are minor bug and typo fixes. A few of the more interesting bits that jump out at me are:

  • Allow disabling password reset per-user.
  • Query functions now allow a comma-separated list of post_status values.
  • Several more link generation bits are made SSL-aware.
  • Advertise the Atom 1.0 feed in the default theme.
  • Atom API uses the newer WP authentication functions.
  • Fix for an object caching bug in plugin updates.

    Sounds like they came up with a few things to whet the appetite until 2.7 is released. Thanks for letting us it know the beta is out.

    I think like “Tinh” – better wait for 2.7 :)

    I still wait for stability version…

  16. Yeah there was not much mention about it. But i think it wont last and it did not last when i used it. 2.7 is the key.
