Theme authors take note, Andrew Nacin is currently leading the charge on rewriting large swathes of get_themes(). Andrew has spent the better part of the last week working on the WP_Theme Class which will make theme authors lives a lot easier. If you’re a theme developer, I encourage you to thoroughly review ticket #20103 to provide feedback on these changes. ∞

Andrew Nacin who is one of the core developers of WordPress gave a presentation at the most recent meetup in New York City covering WordPress 3.3. The video is 35 minutes in length with Andrew going in-depth on many of the features that 3.3 will have such as the admin bar, drag and drop media uploading, post names for permalinks and more. The video is best viewed at full screen. Thanks to Steve Bruner for the hat tip.

This episode was pre-recorded due to some scheduling conflicts at work. They should be fixed by next Friday so I can do the live show again. This episode features a trio of interviews. The first is with Andrew Nacin, one of the core developers for WordPress who gives us an update as to what’s going on with WordPress 3.3. The second interview is with Site5 CEO and WebPub Founder Ben Welch-Bolen who talks to us about what WebPub is and how it will help make managing web applications much easier. Last but not least, Brad Williams gives us the low down on what WPClassroom is and how it works.

Andrew Nacin who is one of the core developers for WordPress has put together an interesting visualization that displays all of the names of those who have contributed patches to the core of WordPress, specifically, 3.0. No surprise that Andrews own name shows up pretty large along with a few notable others.
So, based on a Trac report I made for demetris so he can compile the list of contributors, I generated these word clouds. These are based on changesets 12456 to 14319 (thus, as of this morning). Of 1864 commits, 677 of them had props given, for a total of 720 props (some commits had more than one). Patches were contributed by 170 people so far, the most ever (or so I’m told).
Head on over to his site to check out both the Wordle and the Tag Cloud. Congrats as well as a hearty thanks to all of those individuals who contributed patches to make WordPress 3.0 possible.
