WordPress 2.5 Delayed


So yesterday was supposed to be the release date for highly anticipated WordPress 2.5. If you’re a geek like me you woke up, checked your RSS feeds for any news on the release, managed to get to a computer/phone during school to check for more updates, and then got home and checked for more updates via RSS, Twitter, and friends. If you’re also like me (and everyone else for that matter), you were let down. Disappointed. Sad. You might’ve even caught a tear running down the side of your cheek. WordPress 2.5 was no where to be found.

Anyways, according to the WordPress Trac, the WordPress 2.5 release date has been pushed to March 17th 2008. It seems development is still undergo and it just isn’t ready for release yet. Looks like we’ll be waiting another week. Until then my WordPress buddies!

  2. At first I was going to say that I’m as geeky as you. And then I realized that I checked more than a few times to see it had been released. And then I got a little disappointed. So I guess that can only mean that I’m a geek.

  3. I did just about the same thing as you, checking back and forth. But I think that’s fine, more time to polish is better than a half-baked release.

  4. To be honest, I was looking for you to tell me what was going on! I was a bit confused myself, but I guess I can live another week without it. Thanks for the heads up!

  5. @David – Haha yeah maybe you are a bit geekier 😛

    @Hafiz – Definitely. I’d rather they release it later and be more stable so we don’t have to upgrade to 2.5.1 after a week or so.

    @Verne – Yeah only another week. We’ll make it! No problem. I’m glad you depend on us 🙂

  6. Kinda sucks – having to wait after counting down. But then again, I’d probably not upgrade immediately if its choke-full of bugs (which it is)

    I too did most of what you said (feed checks, getting up early morning just for WP2.5, grabbing a phone for internet), so here’s to another fellow geek 😀

  7. Please, no more upgrades for a while. I’m tired of upgrading my wp sites every few weeks. And from what I’ve seen of the admin design of 2.5 not to long ago it looks horrible and is a big step back. Not looking forward to that.

    No doubt about it, wordpress is a great cms, but the direction it’s heading and the priorities of the wp developers crew are not correct.

  8. If you follow the WordPress development feed, you’d have spotted that one of the developers (Ryan) got sick (respiratory infection). Not sure if one developer off would cause any delay… but the fact that I’m reading those posts must make me a WordPress geek too (well at least a fanatic).
