    SteveAtty - were you seeing the apostrophe problem on an upgraded blog or a new install?

    I get a slash before the single quote within the blog title on the testbed with a new install downloaded direct from trac. This is done during blog creation from the Site Admin -> Blogs -> Create Blog form.

    Editing the Blog name within Dashboard -> Options does fix the issue though.

    Using changeset 1219 I believe.

    Totally new install as shown above ;)

    Once I'd created it I could go into the title and edit the \ out so I guess its something in the initial insert.

    Another concern we're having is the Add Media links within the Write Post/Page editor. If one disallows the uploading of certain types of media, like video, you still get the icon for uploading that type of media and, when you click on the icon, the upload form.

    May also want to upgrade the requirements as, if you run lighttpd as your webserver, version 1.5 is now required to make certain features work. (ie the multiple file uploader for example) Do also note that 1.5 is still in development and the current version is 1.4.9 so you may run into issues with that.

    That makes no sense whatsoever. I do multiples with apache all the time.

    lunabyte - I think he's talking about lighttpd, not Apache.

    I don't know if any one else has encountered this, but when I loaded it up onto my test domain, I noticed that I get signed out every time I switch between blogs via the dashboard switcher. Even when I select "remember me" during a login, I'll be signed out again the second I switch to another blog.

    Otherwise, blog creation and posting works great.

    sadieko, flying by the seat of my pants here, but did you set the secrets in wp-config ? I think the new login uses a much more secure cookie, so if you don't set this in wp-config, it will be different on every blog, hence you'd have to log in again. This is just guess work though, I haven't actually installed 2.5 or WPMU 2.5 merged yet. :)

    Yeah, I didn't really understand if those two secrets were supposed to be different or the same... on one hand, why require 2 secrets, on the other hand, if they're the same, why have 2 variables?

    Hi chmac, THANK YOU that was it. This will teach me to test installs without completely reading the instructions.

    Yes, lighttpd not Apache.

    I'm curious, has anyone thought about future versioning? Now that WPMU tracks WP's minor version, why not go all the way and track the major version too? This seems like a great opportunity to release "WPMU 2.5" and get them completely in sync.

    I'm about to update three of my sites that run on wpmu. I'm already half way through the project and wrote a couple of plugins.

    Is there any estimate when a stable wpmu with wp 2.5 could be released? A guess would be great because I don't want to develop everything for wpmu 2.3.3 if we can expect a new update in the next 4 weeks or so.

    Does it make sense to maybe develop now on this merged version or can we expect major rewriting of the code?

    Please let me know, I work on some funky plugins that many people will like (a nofollow switch for individual blogs for example)

    @Vimm: I think keeping the version numbers different might be a good thing. It makes it obvious that WP and WPMU are completely different beasts. WP is packaged so the average tech literate user can easily install and customise a simple blog. WPMU requires a bit more investment (setting up wildcard virtual hosts, following trunk, etc, etc).

    @deltakid: I'd recommend working against trunk. In my (fairly limited) experience of WPMU, releases are relatively infrequent and pretty ad-hoc. There's only one developer with commit access (donncha) and he's a pretty busy guy, so things happen when he has time.

    Thanks chmac, I decided to just continue writing all my plugins and to move ahead with 2.3.3

    The major tweaks I do are an improved global categories plugin (I released a hack a year ago) and some more front end, formatting stuff so I hope the upgrade won't be too hard.

    @deltakid: I've built and deployed a similar system which globalises the terms and term_taxonomy tables. A second plugin then copies all posts to one of the MU blogs, which becomes the blog for global categories and posts. Happy to collaborate if you like.

    Hi chmac, thanks for the offer but im already pretty much done with the plugin and it works a bit different.

    Mine creates a new database table for all posts and you can query this table for different things (such as specific categories or user)

    Ohh and just saw your twitter, have fun at Songkran I live in Bangkok. :)

    @deltakid: If you're in Bangkok we surely have to collaborate! :) I'd love to see your code and your strategy. It sounds like we've done the same thing, possibly different ways.

    @deltakid,

    You mentioned above a categories plugin. Would you be able to make that available for download?

    If I was a betting man the release will be this week or next, but I am not really privy to that information.
