I just did an update on my local WordPress subversion trunk and noticed the version had been updated to 2.0. No more release candidate, this is the final 2.0 WordPress release. Not many changes between 2.0-Final and RC3. I think there were maybe a total of 15 files that had any changes to them, if that many.
The WordPress.org site is down for the time being, displaying a message:
Switching servers, please check back in about a half hour. Thanks! – Matt
Probably getting ready to announce WordPress 2.0 on the site. Congratulations to the WordPress team on another fine release.
So, I didn’t post for WordPress 2.0-RC2, although there was a far greater number of changes in RC2 than there is in RC3. But, RC2 is history now, so screw it. Sounds like this could be the final release candidate before WordPress 2.0 is officially out of beta and ready for “production” use.
The next release of WordPress is drawing near. Please help us shake out any last remaining bugs by downloading and testing the 2.0 Release Candidate. If all goes well, the Release Candidate will become 2.0 final. We’re almost there. Download, test, and head over to the Beta Forum to let us know if the Release Candidate is ready for prime time.
I’ve got release candidate 3 running here right now, no problems at all. On a related note, Spam Karma 2.0 informed me of 2.1 being in beta. Can’t seem to find a link to it now though.
