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.)

Come on – you can admit it, it’s because of the AutomattiPhone, isn’t it?
I’ve been waiting patiently for 4 years (and counting) for phpBB 3 (nÃ©e 2.2); a few more weeks for WordPress 2.2 will simply fly by. 🙂
Daniel: I blame the pending Google purchase.
Take your time! Just know that we’re all looking forward to it!
Hold it till it’s right man, it’s the right thing to do.
As far as phpBB is concerned, as far as free bulletin board programs are concerned, I prefer MyBB. Much, much better. Give it a try and see.
P.S. I can survive an extra week for WordPress 2.2 and four months for Mac OS X Leopard 🙂
Well considering a bug release was so soon, a couple weeks is nothing.
How about more news about the Wordcamp 07?
I prefer Simple Machines (SMF) as open-source bulletin board software; it`s just great.
One or Two weeks.. no problem 🙂 Looking forward to it but take your time.
I didn’t even know there was a 2.0 release. I just upgrade as the new stuff comes out. I’m looking foward to seeing what will be cool. Thanks for all your hard work…
Good call. I was following the discussion on wp-hackers and got the feeling things were going in the wrong direction. I’m still confused about the whole links/categories decision, so I’m glad the time is being taken to do things right.
Don’t get too caught up in the “release early, release often” hype. It’s a good idea, but you’re allowed to stray from the path for the good of the product occasionally.
Pending Google purchase?! 😉
Wouldn’t mind waiting for a few more weeks though.
noooooo! first leopard. now wordpress. but at the end of the day, like with all software, i’m looking forward to it’s stable release.
Aww I’m sad now. (kidding) I shall be on the lookout tho.
Every major update is well worth the wait. It is better to spend another week testing then spending the week fixing a bad release, to create a patch release.
Looking forward to 2.2 and beyond,
What is this… year of the delayed-releases? Vista, leapord, now WordPress.
Someone stop the madness.
To be honest, I wish the whole cycle would slow down. I’d rather be bloggig than constantly updating my site.
Take your time since you just released 2.1 not long ago. Keep it up.
Just keep up the great work, Matt! Take a month if you need it.
Two weeks has gone. Where is our wp2.2?
