For all you fans of WordPress, this weekend has been a good one. Although I personally wasn’t able to attend the WordCamp San Francisco event, many were able to go and we’ve been receiving a lot of great information.
As a result, I wanted to do a quick post to bring to your attention a couple of the things we are hearing from the event, and in particular, from Matt Mullenweg’s “State of the Word” address, which he does at each WordCamp event:
- WordPress 2.8 Coming VERY Soon!
- There have been hints from the WordPress team about adding a section to their theme repository for GPL-compliant premium themes (paid themes which comply with GPL). I haven’t gotten clarification yet if their will also be a similar site setup for premium plugins that comply with GPL.
- WordPressMU and WordPress.org will be merging.
To those of you that attended the event, let us know about anything we missed in the comments!
- The WordCamp Report from the event.
- Various tweets from a number of web desginers in attendance.
