WordPress in Review Podcast: Episode 2

It is still before midnight as I am getting this up, so I stuck to my own internal promise of getting this episode out within a week. I would love to continue to produce new episodes weekly, but I won’t promise that just yet.

This week I talk about WordPress 2.6, it is finally here and does it bring anything good to the table? I also talk about issues with WordPress 2.6, mention the theme of the week, and talk about the WordPress Weekly podcast. Stick around until the end for what might be a cool podcasting related announcement.

    I disagree on your stance with the plugin bubble. I like it. It gives me at a glance information which lets me know that at least 1 plugin or more is in need up an upgrade. It’s better than actually browsing to the plugins page, scrolling down and seeing if there are new upgrades.

    I don’t want to see the bubble icon placed everywhere in the backend. But I do enjoy it’s use of conveying information of a certain area of the backend without actually browsing to that page.

    Thank you for the plug on the last show and yes, I hope you’ll be able to be a regular co-host for the show. Should be an interesting time period in podcasting heh.

    I agree with you that it is nice to have an indicator, but the same bubble image as the comments status is just wrong… maybe a small blue * next to the Plugins text? I dunno… The bubble is going to quickly be over used and I also wish I could easily disable it as I don’t ALWAYS keep my plugins up to date.

    Hey David – I’ve just listened to four episodes of your podcasts (two of WordPress in Review and two of XFEP Tips).

    Nicely done and keep it up! Might I suggest a Tip episode on migrating to WordPress from other software?

    Perhaps something for the absolute WP novices out there?
