10 Things You Need to Know About WordPress 2.3 Posted on September 20th, 2007 by Alex Mills Wondering what will be new in Monday’s WordPress 2.3 release? Aaron has a great post on his blog.
why upgrade?.. the 2.4 will probably be here in a few weeks after the 2.3.

Sorry, but that is a horribly stupid comment. You don’t think making your blog secure and adding new features is worth upgrading?
As as for the “a few weeks”, 2.4 will be out December 12th: http://wordpress.org/about/roadmap/
sorry, it was the merlot or the carbohydrates in the chicken talking, maybe both!
or maybe the Thytrophin can also bee the blame.
I wish they hadn’t made such radical changes in the database for 2.3. They renamed three tables, which broke a lot of plugins I was using and forced me to use the native WP tagging, even though I was quite content with another tagging plugin. It’s a decent upgrade, yes, but it caused me a lot of grief at first. I still haven’t been able to satisfactorily integrate the WP tags into my theme (Ultimate Tag Warrior worked perfectly with the theme).
I’m in the process of scoping out the changes needed for the new v2.3 tagging system for a couple of my sites. I was also fairly content with UTW. oh well, the winds of change I guess.
Any news on what/when on updates for your plugin(s) compatibility with v2.3? more specifically, video quicktags?
I like the plugins, keep it up!!!

VVQ is entirely 2.3 compatible as it only uses the WordPress API. It’s not likely to break any time soon no matter what they change. 🙂
I actually installed it (late) last night, and ran out of energy to post a follow up comment. Thanks for the quick response on your end! But it appears to work like a charm!!! Kudos for staying out of the firing line for WPs big update. 🙂
Hey, any chance of adding dailymotion.com (killer technology and huge in europe) or break.com?

Both use URLs that have nothing in common with the embed code, so the plugin in it’s current form can’t really handle it (it currently snags the video ID outta the URL and uses it for the embed code).
well, I assumed the current version wouldn’t work. Just putting the idea forth for any possible future releases. At least dailymotion has a unique identifier in the url.
anyway. enjoy using your plug in. keep it up!!! 🙂

Yeah, I’m pretty sure that ID isn’t the one used in the embed code, so… 🙁
The upgrade process may sometimes be painful. So I can wait some more time for a new version.
