Nearly there… Revision Control 2.0

Revision Control 2.0 is nearly here.

A quick list of changes:

  • Fully rewritten from scratch, Will require WordPress 2.9+
  • Better support for custom post types (Will make much more sense with 3.0!)
  • Support for Revisioning of Taxonomy data ( Doesnt restore at present, Mearly revisions it)
  • Many small bugs removed from previous versions

Features in the pipeline (2.1?)

  • Restoring of Taxonomy Revision Data
  • Support for Metadata revisioning (Custom fields, Post thumbnail, etc)
  • Delete all revisions from Admin UI (Or potentially, cleanup so theres only 5 revisions for each post for example)

This seems like a small list, but for a small plugin, its actually a rather large ammount of work to get through.. If you feel like testing it out, Please do, You can download it from here:

Some of those 2.1 features may be in 2.0, It depends on how much time i have amongst other things in life, and how much testing is required.

Translators: Sorry, But i dont have a list of your email addresses to contact you directly.. I’ll be setting up a GlotPress installation for this sort of thing i think :) Feel free to take the langs provided and update them.. I may remove the old ones entirely shortly..

To those of you using some of my other plugins which have been lacking in updates, Most will be recieving a rewrite this year, hopefully in the coming months – But i do not have the time to give any definites here, Some will not be touched. Add From Server is the next on the list however!

Calling Translators

This is a shoutout to all the plugin translators who’ve submitted a translation for Add From Server.

I’ve got version 2.0 in the works which is a complete rewrite of the previous version, which’ll hopefully get rid of a few long standing bugs, The main thing to note with this version, Is that it’ll be WordPress 2.7+ only.

I have decided to only support the latest stable branch of WordPress in my plugins, The main reason for this decision is that as someone who runs the latest trunk/nightly all year round, Its incredibly hard NOT to take advantage of new functionality in the latest versions of WordPress, As it is, I wait until the version is the latest stable before including those functions in my plugins though. The other pushing point, is that you need to keep your WordPress updated to the latest stable for security purposes, As with all applications, There are security flaws which are found all the time, Keeping up to date will greatly help keeping you and your blog safe.

Anyway, Back to the point, If you’ve submitted a translation, Please download Add From Server 2.0-alpha and correct the translations.

If you’re running WordPress 2.7, Then please give the plugin a test and submit any bugs you find to me at

Cheers all :)
