Hard to believe it’s been three years (almost to the day) since I launched my 7 Days of Plugins promotion. For that endeavor I sought to release one new plugin a day and update at least one existing plugin per day. In the end, I managed to release ten new plugins and update everything I had previously released.
I figured a similar promotion would be an appropriate means of announcing my return to more public involvement with WordPress. But of course I’d have to go beyond what I had done before. So I’m happily announcing the imminent 14 Days of Plugins.
The plugins will start flowing on March 31st.
The premise is essentially the same: a new plugin a day, and at least an update of an existing plugin a day, for 14 days. That means at least 14 new plugins, and updates to my existing ~20 plugins.
Expect some existing plugins to become deprecated. But for the others, they will gain (or, in some cases, verify) support for WordPress 2.3+ and 2.5. In just about all cases they will also see bugfixes, improvements, and new features.
As for the new plugins, they vary in their natures, so there may be at least one or two that may strike your fancy.
Of interest to many would be the fact that Customizable Post Listings will be updated to v3.0, with lots of changes!
