PodPress and WordPress 2.6: Last Call

This will be the last time I post about PodPress on this blog, as I am going to be removing it and trying out all of the alternatives. Some of my previous podcasts may no longer work, but I am tired of waiting for a solution from Dan Kuykendall, who has decided to leave the community in the lurch.

For those of you that don’t know the situation, PodPress 8.8 doesn’t work, out of the box, with WordPress 2.6, as the post revisions feature has broken it. There are other issues with 8.8 as well, but the revisions issue seems to be the most common. Many people have taken to disabling the post revisions feature, which requires changing core code or adding another plugin to your WordPress installation.

PodPress 8.9 was due out over a month ago, even taking the announced delay into account. When you have such an important community feature ruined by a single plugin developer, it is a shame for everyone.

With this in mind, I hope you all try out the alternatives, and let me know how they work for you. If you have been waiting to upgrade your blog for a working PodPress 8.9, please wait no longer as there are just too many WordPress security risks to be running a version of WordPress before 2.6.
