Interesting article about upcoming new features in Wordpress 2.9. http://dougal.gunters.org/blog/2009/...s-2-9-features
I've signed up as a beta tester on a non-public site I'm running. Should be interesting.
Some of the proposed new features should make obsolete many of the plugins I'm using now to make my newspaper site more of a CMS. Yay! And 2.9 should also have the ability to easily add widgets anywhere, not just in sidebars. So Flynn could remove that as a theme option, eventually.
