WordPress 2.3 Brings Tidings Of Taxonomy

WordPress 2.3 codename Dexter has just arrived. Among the notable new features are a minimalistic built-in tagging support system and an update notification function for WordPress, themes and plugins. I have just upgraded the Fauna theme to fix stuff that broke in the upgrade and add support for the new tagging features. On that note, we’re only a few end-user tests away from a final release!

This Noscope of mine will follow in the not so distant future, perhaps coinciding with a mini-redesign I have in the pipeline (one that makes me very proud, even loaded with AJAX!).

Have you upgraded (you may want to prepare)? Do you plan to in the near future? Any experience converting Ultimate Tag Warrior tags to the WordPress tags?

    The one in the SVN right now

    http://fauna.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/

    is compatible with 2.3. It has tagging, the new categories, the works.

    It’s two bugs from final release though. I hope to fix them tonight. One involves the author page, the other involves the tag page showing a tag slug name instead of the tag name. Trivial bugs, but bugs nonetheless.

    looking forward to a new noscope!

    Thanks, and yeah me too :)

    I am allways waiting for people to come out with possible problems. I don’t want to be a crash dummy. But no offence.
