It is not just regular WordPress that is closing in on version 2.8, the multiuser variant, called WordPress MU, is being updated as well. Donncha O Caoimh announced the changes, so far just available from the trunk, but there nonetheless.
I merged WP 2.8 beta1 and I’m fixing bugs. Please install and try it out on a test server! The get_option() and related code is using the same code as WordPress.org which is one of the main reasons I went digging into the object cache. It leans a lot more on the cache than previously. Please test!
Remember, this is not a beta and is not intended for public use, but if you like to see things break then this is your thing. Just put it on a test server. WordPress MU is what powers sites like WordPress.com, among other things. It is for blog hosts (and networks) primarily, not for users.
Kutcher said that he didn’t want to get stalked. Well, the openness of Twitter makes that kind of impossible. Anyone can move along with a Twitter project if they want to. Then again, they only get what you give them, Kutcher, so think before you tweet. You know, like you do before you talk…

One of the best aspects of the Twitter toolset is the fact the team allowed external programmers access to the service so that 3rd party applications and tools could be created. The downside of course is that not everyone has end users best interests at heart, and therefore there are trojan tools out there aiming just to grab your user account details for their own nasty ends … read more
Regardless of your political leaning, you would be hard pressed to dispute the fact that the New York Times was at one point the most significant print news source on the planet.
Ravaged by accusations (and some proven cases) of plagiarism and an era of shaky old-school media, the New York Times, like many tabloids, is looking to the Web for salvation. Taking one step closer to the virtual silver bullet that isn’t, the Times announced the addition of a new position today: social media editor. read more
Happy Tuesday, Folks! Apologies for the late post — the Memorial Day holiday here threw me off. We’ve got several things to cover this week, so let’s get right to it.
Like most weeks, Chad Everett has released an updated to his popular blog notification plugin: MT-Notifier 4.2.3. This releases fixes a problem that was causing some people to get errors, so if you were seeing those errors you should upgrade now.
Also this past week, Beau Smith published two tutorials on his blog. First, he has a snippet of template code for only publishing entries with a future (or past) date. I’ve found this sort of thing particularly useful when using MT to publish an event calendar.
Also from Beau, a guide to installing MT on a Mac. I particularly appreciate the step-by-step instructions for installing ImageMagick. That’s a beast I’ve fought on multiple platforms, and a guide like this would have made it a lot easier. Thanks, Beau!
The San Francisco-based web phenom has partnered with Reveille and Brillstein Entertainment to develop an unscripted TV skein described as “putting ordinary people on the trail of celebrities in a revolutionary competitive format.”
Naturally, that set the blogosphere abuzz with rumors of at Twitter show, reactions and whatnot. However, it turns out that the Variety report wasn’t all that it seemed to be. A post on the Twitter Blog goes on about the openness of Twitter, how various TV networks are utilizing it, and more.
However, Biz Stone sets it all straight as well: There is no Twitter show. That doesn’t mean that they don’t have visions though. read more
We all have it. The email inbox reaches 1,000 unread messages like some virtual red flashing light indicator of procrastination. You’ve got 600 tweets to read and 45 DMs to respond to.
