WordPress 2.9 Beta 2

WordPress 2.9 Beta 2 has been released.

I tested my plugins on WordPress 2.9 Beta 1 and it all works without any problem. I don’t think I will have time to release any updates till I get back from my holiday at the end of December 2009. Having said that, the current version of my plugin should work fine with WordPress 2.9 as well.
