In the first half of the episode, Gil Rutkowski otherwise known as FlashingCursor on twitter joined me to discuss post formats, a new feature slated for WordPress 3.1. We went over what a post format is, data portability, why the core dev team decided on a standard set of formats, and much more.
During the second half of the show, I played a pre-recorded interview with Chip Bennett which went over a ton of information related to the Theme Review Team. In the interview, we discuss how the team was formed, the guidelines of reviewing a theme, and last but not least, the goal of the theme review team. After the interview concluded, I was joined live by Edward Caissie who is a member of the theme review team to answer some additional questions I had, specifically dealing with the new post formats featuring which will be theme dependent.
