WordPress 3.1 is finally here!
Of the new features that arrived today, a few of my favourites are:
- Internal linking
- Improved WXR import/export (well it had to be on my list)
- Admin bar, just because of the awesome Debug Bar plugin
The following is a visualization of all the commits made to WordPress up until the release of 3.1:
The video was made using Gource on a checkout of the whole WordPress repository using the following commands.
`gource --log-command svn` > svn.log gource --user-image-dir gravatars --disable-progress --stop-at-end --highlight-users -s 0.1 --date-format '%A, %e %B %Y' --output-ppm-stream - svn.log | ffmpeg -b 3000K -r 60 -f image2pipe -vcodec ppm -i - -vcodec libx264 -vpre medium wp-gource.mp4
Unfortunately the commits appear to lose sync with the date. There are only four commits in the log for 23 February 2011, but the video shows some from a few days before. However since it took so long to create the video the first time I was not going to try again!
Time to start work on 3.2!
