Version 1.5

Note: The working version number for version 1.5 was 1.3.

Archive version available at: http://wordpress.org/download/release-archive/

This page lists the goals that Version 1.5 aspired to. Striked out items have been implemented.

  • Critical bugs that need to be fixed
  • New functionality that needs implementation/fixing
  • Other stuff

I know many potential users are trying to decide whether to install 1.2mingus or wait until an official 1.3 release. This page should help them tackle that decision.

1.3 (now 1.5) Goals

This is a temporary section outlining goals for 1.3(now 1.5) for developers to work on if they have the time. Not all of this will make it into 1.3(now 1.5). If you have any questions or comments, or even better if you want to work on any of this, please email m@mullenweg.com
