Upgraded to WordPress MU 1.3

blogs.gnome.org is now running WordPress MU 1.3, which is equivalent to an upgrade from WordPress 2.2.2 to WordPress 2.3.1. New user-visible features include:

  • Native tagging support, including an easy converter if you were previously using categories like tags.
  • A pending review feature, which will be very handy for multi-author project blogs. You can now specifically submit a post for review by the blog editor.
  • Complete Atom 1.0 support, including the Atom Publishing Protocol.
  • Various performance improvements on the database side and the browser side.

Please file bugs if you notice any problems with the upgrade. Thanks as always to the WordPress and WordPress MU hackers!

  1. I noticed that the sandbox theme does not display tags added to entries. Maybe it needs to be upgraded too?

    Thanks James — I filed GNOME bug #496024 about this. I’ve upgraded sandbox now, but I’ll have to go through the other themes too.
