Firstly, apologies for the delays in getting out the first few WordPress 2.6 digest posts. They are coming real soon, once I get the time to write up all the good work that has been going on.
Secondly, some good folks are in the process of organising the first WordCamp in the UK. So far it looks like it is going to be on the weekend of the 19th-20th of July and they are looking for a show of hands so they can work out what size venue to organise.
I hope to be able to see you there!
