WordPress 2.3 Release Candidate 1 (RC1)

WordPress 2.3 is supposed to be released as a final version today. RC1 was released late last Monday for people to do final testing before the published release.

Fortunately my site isn’t really live yet, so testing out the RC1 wouldn’t be a big deal. But I decided to just install a fresh version on a different server and do the testing I needed.

I wanted to make sure some of my plugins worked, specifically Kimili Flash Plugin and WP-Sticky. Both of them worked like a charm. I did some testing to see if they had upgraded any of the HTML editing in TinyMCE, the WYSIWYG editor, but it doesn’t appear so. I think the editor still strips empty tags and “div” tags.

But at the very least, I am really getting into these releases. This is a fairly big one. It adds tag support, which is huge for SEO purposes. It also adds auto checker for plugin updates and release updates for the software.

I will probably end up upgrading later this week.
