WPWeekly Episode 43 – Glimpse At WordPress 2.8

wordpressweekly1David and I talked about some WordPress news that has accumulated the past two weeks. This ranged from WPDesigner coming back to life only to die again to my idea to wipe the ideas forum and start a new. We also covered a few confirmed features that will be in WordPress 2.8. Oh and last but not least, Michael Castilla and Dan Philibin from WPCandy.com stopped by at the beginning of the show to tell us about WordCamp Miami.
