Dougal Campbell's geek ramblings

WordPress, web development, and world domination.

WordPress 1.2 Beta

Oh, and speaking of WordPress, we have a new beta version out! WordPress 1.2 Beta is full of word pressing goodness, and it’s a part of this nutritious breakfast!

Those of you who keep track of such things, might wonder why we’re going from version 1.0.2 to version 1.2. What happened to version 1.1? Well, at some point during development, we had accomplished all of the 1.1 goals and had already begun working on features that we had planned for 1.2. So we decided to just keep going, and keep the version 1.2 label.

This latest release has a ton of new features, including sub-categories, custom fields, automatic thumbnail generation for images, and an improved admin interface. Plus the new plugin architecture will allow developers to create a whole new class of third-pary add-ins.

    I have only just discovered WordPress and I am blown away. Infact I knew nothing about blogs until I came across and she gave WordPress a great rap so I checked it out. I thought I would try my own blog with WordPress and it was incredibly easy to start. I am a designer not a coder and even I managed to get it up and running very quickly hehe.

    I can only say thanks guys. When I am in the position too I will definately donate/purchase a license. Truly a remarkable piece of software.


    Ps, Matt is right, from what I have seen so far, WordPress will very quickly establish itself is the #1 blog software. I hope it does!

    Good luck
