Justin Tadlock, co-author of Professional WordPress Plugin Development, has put out a call for help beta-testing the next version of his Members plugin. Members is a plugin that lets you create and edit roles, capabilities, and generally take advantage of the WordPress user system. It hasn’t seen a major update since 2009, but Tadlock wants to change that very soon with 0.2. In order to speed up development, Tadlock is asking for interested bet testers to stop by his blog and help him out.
Tadlock says the focus for 0.2 will be on improving current features and options, moreso than adding any new ones. He wants to update the plugin for the latest versions of WordPress as well. He also asks that beta testers not run the development version on any live sites, but only on testing sites until it is stable.
You an download the development version on Tadlock’s blog, and get in touch with him there to help out more. Do you use Members for managing user roles and capabilities on your site? If not, what plugin(s) do you use instead?
