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: http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/revision-control.zip

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!

WordPress.org Plugin Information API

Just a quick note, I’ve written a quick doc on the input and output of the WordPress Plugin Information API which is used by the WordPress 2.7 Plugin Installer, You can find the docs here: http://dd32.id.au/wordpressorg-plugin-information-api-docs/

I thought i’d publish this note here, Since at the moment, Theres no way to get to any pages on this blog other than by the direct url.. :)
