Wordpress 2.2 Gets Delayed

Matt Mullenweg let everyone know the news on his blog. Two weeks isn’t a very long delay and I’d rather see them take the time now and get everything nailed down, rather than scrambling to fix bugs after release. No one likes installing those updates.

The WP dev team has decided to hold back version 2.2 for at least a week or two from the original date of April 23 while we polish things up. I’ll post an updated release date as soon as we figure out how long everything is going to take. (Which is extra-hard in open source development.)

Lorelle has also done a quick round-up of some of the more interesting features and improvements being added to Wordpress 2.2.

  • Improved comment editing
  • Multiple format comment feeds, including Atom
  • phpmailer integrated for performance and maintainability
  • Plugin Sandboxing to Test Drive Plugins
  • Default and Classic WordPress Themes widgetized

What caught my eye is Plugin Sandboxing. On more than one occasion I’ve killed my site because a plugin I’ve installed has compatibility issues, or I’ve been tinkering with plugin code and accidentally left out a semicolon. The sandbox feature will allow you to test new plugins before committing them to your site, as well as give you some insurance should you want to edit an active plugin.

Before a plugin is activated or a plugin is edited, it is tested in a
temporary fashion (that is, without being permanently activated). If it
passes the test, it is activated for real. If it doesn’t pass the test
(it’s throwing a fatal error that would normally take down your
WordPress install), it is deactivated, and you get a nice error message
telling you what went wrong. If the fatal error was caused because you
edited an active plugin, the “Update File? button changes to “Update
File and Attempt to Reactivate,? so that once you correct your typo,
the plugin will go back to being activated, without requiring you to go
back and manually activate it.
