WordPress Update

March 18, 2008

WordPress 2.5 will be available for download soon, according to the sneak peek that Matt just posted. I’ve downloaded the release candidate version, and will give it a try soon. I expect that we will see the 2.5 features (new dashboard, etc.) at WordPress.com shortly.

After a little time with 2.5, I’ll move on to the next post in my series about Automattic and making money from free/open source software. It’ll be the one on self-hosted WordPress.

Yesterday, I published some thoughts on how money can be made from WordPress.com by the people who blog there. It’s not part of the series, although it’s related. In fact, it’s a complement to the post on how Automattic is Making Money from WordPress.com.
