WordPress weekly digest 25th February to 3rd March 2008

Firstly, apologies again for this digest post being a bit late – the final push for 2.5 has been in full swing and I took a week out to go on holiday. It was a busy week again for WordPress 2.5, the changes were:

  • Changes to do_feed() to ensure that an error page is generated when a non-existent feed format is requested (#5446).
  • Introduction of a new image_resize() function (#6005).
  • Introduction of get_temp_dir() to allow for the different locations temporary files may be stored (#5984).
  • An update to the in_category() function to support category names that are all numbers and add documentation ([7064]).
  • Change to generating random passwords for users created during import (#5837).
  • A fix to the WXR importer to ensure that tags are imported correctly by name rather than as numbers (#5330).
  • A fix to ensure that the current_page_item class is set correctly when listing pages (#2959).
  • Introduction of get_post_ancestors() and the addition of the current_page_ancestor class to ancestors of the current page when listing pages (#5662).
  • Fixes to the plugin update code to use string comparison to detect version differences (#5978).
  • Introduction of post editing collision detection (#6043).
  • Changes to switch preg_replace() calls with the e modifier to preg_replace_callback() to improve security ([7056], #5644).
  • Update to TinyMCE 3.02 (#6012).
  • More updates to the new media library (#5911).
  • Lots of updates to the new admin style.

  1. Every once in a while I get confused. Is blogging about technology or content? 🙂

    But I’m excited, and looking forward to the 2.5 version.
