Lorelle has put up a list about the future of WordPress which was derived from WordCamp 2007.
Here are 3 points which interest me the most:
» Expect to see WordPress Plugin updates in your WordPress Administration Panels linked to the database in the WordPress Plugin Directory very soon.
» Tags will be out in the September release of WordPress 2.3. It will function fairly similarly to the popular Ultimate Tag Warrior Plugin.
» A new WordPress Administration Panel will be coming in the WordPress 2.4 release around the end of the year. It is designed to put what users use the most in the fore and improve comments and posting for efficiency. It shouldn’t be a drastic update, but will increase efficiency and access.

Dougal has put up a list of 14+ awesome WordPress-powered sites on his site.
So being curious, I went to check those 14+ sites and see which sites are using my plugins.
After checking them out, 4 sites out of 14+ sites are using my plugins and they are:
» welovewp.com – WP-PostRatings
» delicious:days – WP-Polls
» PlayStation.Blog – WP-Email, WP-Polls
» Ford Motor Company’s Global Auto Shows – WP-PostRatings
Here are some sites posted in Dougal’s comments:
» WordPress Garden – WP-PostRatings
» Harry Potter Beyond – WP-Polls
Here are some sites posted in my comments:
» My Biggest Complaint – WP-PostRatings
To the webmasters of those sites, THANK YOU for your support.
PS: Maybe when I have the time I will have a links page that has links to all WordPress powered sites that are using my plugins. Just a thought =)
WordPress 2.2.1 has been released and as usual I have updated this site to WordPress 2.2.1.
» Atom feed validation fixes
» XML-RPC fixes
» Widget backward compatibility fixes
» Widget layout fixes for IE7
» Page and Text Widget improvements
» Remote shell injection in PHPMailer
» Remote SQL injection in XML-RPC
» Unescaped attribute in default theme
Unfortunately, 2.2.1 is not just a bug fix release. Some security issues came to light during 2.2.1 development, making 2.2.1 a required upgrade. 2.2.1 addresses the following vulnerabilities:

WordPress 2.2 has been released and as usual I have updated this site to it. Here are the goodies copy + paste from WordPress.org.
» WordPress Widgets allow you to easily rearrange and customize areas of your weblog (usually sidebars) with drag-and-drop simplicity. This functionality was originally available as a plugin Widgets are now included by default in the core code, significantly cleaned up, and enabled for the default themes.
» Full Atom support, including updating our Atom feeds to use the 1.0 standard spec and including an implementation of the Atom Publishing API to complement our XML-RPC interface.
» A new Blogger importer that is able to handle the latest version of Google’s Blogger product and seamlessly import posts and comments without any user interaction beyond entering your login.
» Infinite comment stream, meaning that on your Edit Comments page when you delete or spam a comment using the AJAX links under each comment it will bring in another comment in the background so you always have 20 items on the page. (I know it sounds geeky, but try it!)
» We now protect you from activating a plugin or editing a file that will break your blog.
» Core plugin and filter speed optimizations should make everything feel a bit more snappy and lighter on your server.
» We’ve added a hook for WYSIWYG support in a future version of Safari.
My plugins should not break with WordPress 2.2 because the code changes are not significant unlike from WordPress 2.0 to WordPress 2.1. However, if they do break, PLEASE POST IT IN THE SUPPORT FORUMS and not in the comments. Thank you =)
WordPress 2.1.3 has been released and I have updated this site to WordPress 2.1.3.
These releases include fixes for several publicly known minor XSS issues, one major XML-RPC issue, and a proactive full sweep of the WordPress codebase to protect against future problems.
