  1. I’ve asked this question elsewhere but it remains without a response.

    Are you going to do something in WP 2.4 to make the visual editor compatible with Apple’s Safari 3.

    Just wondering.

  2. Glad to see some attention is being spent on the refactor of the WXR exporter! Maybe now some time can be diverted to the GSL flanger to solve the rotisserie coding!

    Blog on!

  3. @hhd: I don’t believe that we email admins when a new post is submitted for review – I suspect this is an ideal feature to be implemented in a plugin as every site will have a different set of people it wants notifying of new posts available for review.
