WordPress 2.0 Final is Here

I just did an update on my local WordPress subversion trunk and noticed the version had been updated to 2.0. No more release candidate, this is the final 2.0 WordPress release. Not many changes between 2.0-Final and RC3. I think there were maybe a total of 15 files that had any changes to them, if that many.

The WordPress.org site is down for the time being, displaying a message:

Switching servers, please check back in about a half hour. Thanks! – Matt

Probably getting ready to announce WordPress 2.0 on the site. Congratulations to the WordPress team on another fine release.

Well, now what?

WordPress 2.0-RC3

So, I didn’t post for WordPress 2.0-RC2, although there was a far greater number of changes in RC2 than there is in RC3. But, RC2 is history now, so screw it. Sounds like this could be the final release candidate before WordPress 2.0 is officially out of beta and ready for “production” use.

The next release of WordPress is drawing near. Please help us shake out any last remaining bugs by downloading and testing the 2.0 Release Candidate. If all goes well, the Release Candidate will become 2.0 final. We’re almost there. Download, test, and head over to the Beta Forum to let us know if the Release Candidate is ready for prime time.


I’ve got release candidate 3 running here right now, no problems at all. On a related note, Spam Karma 2.0 informed me of 2.1 being in beta. Can’t seem to find a link to it now though.

Well, now what?

Iraq’s Parliamentary Election (Updated)

Iraqis are voting in what some say is the most important election yet. The Sunnis, who boycotted the parliamentary election in January ’04, are expected to turn out in droves for this election. 1000 or so Sunni clerics issued fatwas urging their followers to participate in this election.

More than 1,000 Sunni clerics issued a religious decree, or fatwa , urging their followers to vote, rallying what is expected to be a massive turnout by Sunnis, who widely obeyed the clerics’ instructions to boycott parliamentary elections in January.


Bill Roggio is on the ground in Iraq, go check it out for some election coverage right from the source. There’s lots of purple finger photos floating in the blogosphere right now. Iraqis have an impressive amount of support coming from U.S. bloggers and bloggers throughout the world. The large list of bloggers below wishing Iraqis the best is a prime example. I can’t believe we’ve made this much progress in such short time. Other bloggers:
Iraq the Model
Stop the ACLU
No End But Victory
American Future
Ankle Biting Pundits
The Indepundit
American Warmonger
Michelle Malkin
Outside The Beltway
In The Bullpen
Conservative Thinking

UPDATE: Brian at Iowa Voice has an update noting the apparently spetacular success of the Iraqi elections. It’s estimated that up to 15 million Iraqis voted! The CIA World Factbook estimates the population of Iraq to be about 26 million. That number coming from back in July 2005, so it’s pretty recent. That’s 57% voter turnout, but all of those 26 million aren’t registered voters, so, I dunno. Really, there can’t be much more than 20 million Iraqis of the age to vote. That puts the voter turnout close to 75%, I’d say that’s a pretty impressive show.

Well, now what?

Katie Couric Interviews Ramsey Clark

After watching that interview, I can safely say that Ramsey Clark believes every word Saddam says. Whatever Saddam says, Ramsey Clark takes it as fact. He’s more of a puppet than I thought he was. There was some undisputable senility in Ramsey’s talking too, poor old fella. I’d think one would need to be senile, at the very least, to defend Saddam though, so it makes sense.

Ramsey is a little too worried about Saddam’s civil rights. Saddam doesn’t have civil rights anymore. It’s a known fact that he’s had a hand in murdering at the very least hundreds of people. I know he’s got basic civil rights, but those shouldn’t even be granted to him. Money shouldn’t be wasted on a trial. All that’s required is a bullet, I’ll fuckin buy it. Shit, I’ll buy a whole clip.

NewsBusters has some of the interview in text. The Political Teen has the video of the interview. The NewsBusters video seems to be pointing to a bunch of Google AdSense ads right now…

Also, Greg at The Political Pit Bull thinks he might be too young to fully understand the evils perpetrated by Saddam. He’s got a link to an article by Cliff May that sheds some light for we young bucks.

Jihad Watch has named Ramsey Clark as “The American Dhimmi of the Year 2005.” A very well deserved title for Mr. Clark.

Well, now what?

Explosion at London Oil Depot

UPDATE: It’s not in London!

A series of large explosions rocked a London Oil Depot earlier today. A “massive blaze” is still raging at the site of the explosion.

Memoria Technica
has an amazing picture, go check it out. The BBC is reporting that there are no known deaths. There are 43 injured so far though.

The American Mind has more pictures and some updates. The Moderate Voice has one update and has a picture of the smoke clouds, visible from satellite.

Well, now what?
