WordPress 1.5 “Strayhorn”

Well, the long awaited WordPress 1.5 is out. They skipped 1.3 and 1.4. Not sure why. But I just clicked on that link and will copy some of the reasons:

  • Even numbers are soooo 2004
  • 2 + 3 = 5 (who can argue with that?)
  • They released 1.3 without telling us
  • They’re switching to letters (WordPress XP, WordPress CS, WordPress MX)
  • They’re switching to years (WordPress 2004, WordPress 2005…)

Those WordPress programmer people are funny.

But the upgrade happened yesterday here. You probably didn’t even notice, unless you got a few SQL errors yesterday around 4pm. It went pretty seamlessly and most of my plugins are still working. I do have to still fix one of them. Other than a minor problem with one plugin we’re rocking. And it might be a tad faster, however I have not noticed much of a difference in terms of speed and loading times.

Actually, I am kinda suprised I am even talking about this as Eric and Mike are probably the only ones who care. Maybe David. But he wrote his journal software. Such is life. Hell, I dont even think I’ve ever really talked about WordPress here. Most of my friends have livejournals anyways. But it’s a great Content Management System that works wonders for people who have journals they write in regularly.

  • I think Elle doesn’t exist anymore. I think she’s a figment of our collective OM imagination.
