Here’s a summary of what to expect:
- Dynamic publishing in PHP
- you can have certain templates be generated on the fly (like in WordPress) rather than having to rebuild them all the time. You can also make templates like your RSS feed static as before. Very cool.
- Post scheduling
- allows you to post entries that will automatically appear in the future.
- This time, support for them is built-in.
The 6 winners of the plugin contest will also be available in an optional plugin pack, so you can get MT-Blacklist, XSearch/Plus, KoalaRainbow, MultiBlog, Markdown and Notifier all at once.
The release isn’t due until the very end of August so there’s a bit of waiting yet. There’s no news on whether there will be a beta test like before, though.
