Not too long ago, WordPress 2.8 was released.
In any case, updated versions will be released within the week. However, I am debating whether to update it to
Tested up to: 2.8 or
Tested up to: 2.9-rare, which is the version string used in the Subversion trunk as of June 18. We’ll see.
Addendum: Simpler iPaper will still be compatible with older versions as it moves forward. Simpler CSS will still be compatible with only 2.7 and up.
Building upon the Custom User CSS plugin by Jeremiah Orem, I’ve developed a Simpler CSS plugin that “just works”. Drop it into the `mu-plugins` folder on a WordPress µ installation, and you’ve just provided all your users with the ability to add custom styling to their blogs.
Coming soon — once the plugin is admitted onto the repository and directory.
(Unlike the Simpler iPaper plugin, which was released under the Apache License, this plugin will be released under the GPL in order to comply with the licensing of the project from which it was forked.)
The purpose of this site is to have a place where the “Simpler iPaper” plugin and other (future) plugins in the “Simpler Plugins” line can be distributed, can be documented, and can be discussed.
The development for the Simpler iPaper plugin is currently going on at Google Code. Find some bugs, fix some problems, or join the project.
I’ve also been considering not using WordPress.com for this blog, and instead using one of my own domains (or my PersonalLog blog hosting service, which has a name not suited to plugin development). However, it looks like I’ll be on WordPress.com for a while, at least until something urges me to move away from it.
