WordPress 2.2 Delayed

Well, it looks like a 120 day release cycle was just a tad too fast for the WordPress development team, and Matt has come out to let us all know it will be delayed.

The WP dev team has decided to hold back version 2.2 for at least a week or two from the original date of April 23 while we polish things up. I’ll post an updated release date as soon as we figure out how long everything is going to take. (Which is extra-hard in open source development.)

The 120 day cycle was a bit short, and so I am glad to see they didn’t feel like it was set in stone. I wonder if this will effect the next releases of WordPress as well. Honestly though, if it takes them another month, 150 days between decent releases is not horrible either.

Note: Matt informed me it has only been 90 days, but again, I think everyone is going to agree with me…Take your time Automattic team.

    Yeah, is a problem with Tags, they will out tags of wp 2.2 and change it to wp 2.3 :p

    For the record, April 23 was 90 days from the last release.

    Thanks Matt, I didn’t realize that. But still… to be fair… even 150 days would be really good for a release cycle. That’d be 2 releases a year. I think everyone will forgive you all for the needed extra time.

    I think the 120 day release cycle should be more of target as well; an “ish” if you will. Much better to have the release solid and as feature rich as possible than to push something that will need a quick patch if something isn’t done quite right.

    Hopefully plug-in developers will keep up!

    I agree David.

    Matt, I love the work you guys do but I’d rather update my 34 installs of WordPress twice a year rather than 5 times when 3 of them are critical patches.

    Not that I complain too much with your simple upgrades.
