Tip #8 : Read WordPress Digest

Posted by Leonid Mamchenkov on December 3, 2007

If you don’t have a lot of time to follow WordPress development news, just read to this one blog – WordPress weekly digest.  One short post per week, with a summary list of what changes went into trunk.  Occasionally, there are also brief explanations like this one:

 The last change means that the next time you login the value stored in the database will change – this means that if you do upgrade passed this point reverting back to an old version will invalidate all users passwords and they will need reseting. Therefore it is a good idea to backup up your users table before updating to the latest trunk.

    WordPress Digest is certainly worth the time. It is really nice to get this condensed update on the development. It has become one of the blogs I always follow.

    I like the idea of a centralized weekly post that summarizes recent changes. I’m going to check it out and see if it becomes part of my weekly blog reads. Thanks for the tip.

    the RSS feed of WordPress Bits contains full posts. And I have no control over settings of other blogs. :)

    Please contact the author there.
