Just a heads up on the next WP-United release.
I'm not planning on introducing another v0.7xx version, as the outstanding bugs are relatively minor. I'd like the next version to be a major update. v0.8 will include the following features:
-- automatic fixing of CSS conflicts in template integration. The idea is that when you have phpBB-in-WordPress, or WordPress-in-phpBB, templates will integrate perfectly, automatically, 99.9% of the time. WP-United does this by automatically inspecting CSS files and modifying them, and automatically finding and fixing conflicting IDs and class names in the HTML source. This is already working and I hope to have a demo up soon -- it's pretty amazing (even if I do say so myself
-- rewritten caching system. The caching of various WP-United elements will be improved, and the template caching system (which has long been hidden in options.php), should be ready for primetime. As part of this and the new template integration system, the "full page" template integration option should become more useful
-- Some automatic fixes for plugins. Automatic detection and fixing of known issues with plugins that are currently causing common errors. I'm also mapping out (in my head) a way to auto-detect and disable incompatible plugins during the setup wizard. This is a priority for me as it will cut down on support requests, but it may not make it into v0.8, as it calls for a big change in the flow of the setup wizard.
-- (maybe) the ability to edit cross-posted posts. Jury is still out on this one, it may not make it into v0.8.
-- Lots of code cleanups and bug fixes. The integration code (wordpress-entry-point.php) is completely rewritten, and is now in interator.php and template-integrator.php. For the end user, this won't mean much, but from my side, it will make it much easier to add additional features in the future, or even to extend the integration to include additional packages. It will also mean less changes will be required between wordpress releases. This is also part of a bigger push to clean up in advance of a v1.0 release.
I am hoping that v0.8 will come together in a week or two. when the SVN version starts to become more mature, I will post so that people can try it out. Right now lots of code is on the floor as things are rewritten.
