WordPress 4-month dev cycle

Wordcamp 2007

A few weeks ago I attended Wordcamp 2007 here in San Francisco. There was a lot of great news and discussions that came out of it, but one item that many WordPress users out there will find interesting is that WordPress will now be on a 4 month major release cycle. Version 2.3 should be out in September… 2.4 four months after that, etc…

This is an experiment for now, as they’re not quite sure they can maintain this schedule. I personally am looking forward to 2.3, as it will finally have built-in support for tagging. It was also announced that the built-in tagging feature will be backwards compatible with “all major tagging plugins”.
