Exciting Dates for WordPress Users

If you have been using WordPress for some time now, there are two sets of dates that might get you excited: releases and conferences.

On the releases side, you will see some updates to WordPress 2.0, 2.3, and a full 2.4 release by the end of this year, or early in the new year.

WordPress 2.0.12 is listed as three weeks late according to WordPress’ trac system, meaning it should be out any time now. I would guess that it will be released at the same time as WordPress 2.3.1 which is due November 15th.

WordPress 2.4, which should see some very visible changes to the WordPress administration panel is currently set to be released December 12th of this year, but The Blog Herald has it listed as being released January 15th of 2008, which I think is much more realistic to their development cycle. Either way, it should be interesting.

Then for all those keeping track, we will see a WordPress 2.5 in May, 2008.

There will be some interesting conferences to end this year, and throughout the next year for WordPress and WordPress related events. The one I am most excited about is WordCamp Dallas, as my friend, Charles from the WordPress Podcast, is organizing the event. WordCamp Dallas will be held March 29-30, 2008.

Here are a few others:

Now if only there was a WordCamp up here in Canada? Why hasn’t anyone put together one in Toronto?

    I’ve heard that it is now WordCamp Southwest, encompassing more than just the local area. Going to be two days jammed packed with too much fun March 29 and 30 in Frisco, Texas.
