Join the Wordpress funeral on Wednesday

Posted on 20/4/08 by Felix Geisendörfer

Hey folks,

wednesday will be the official funeral for and Both blogs will be shut down and hopefully come back phoenix style as right away ...

However. There still is lots of work left on the the new blog system and Tim and I are already swamped with client work, commitments to open source projects and various other things.

That means chances are this is going to be a funeral indeed and things might go horribly wrong in the process of transition. So please get ready to send all your complaints about broken links, features, pages, etc. to

We've decided to set this little deadline (no pun intended) for ourselves since launching the new blog has been one of the things we've said is about a week or two from happening for the past couple months and nothing has happened. This is especially frustrating since we currently consider this to be our most important long term project and several other small projects and software releases have been pushed back because of it.

So mark your calendars and hope the best for our two sites when we pull the plugs on April 23rd. We'll do it regardless of how much progress is going to be made in between now and then ; ).

PS: Sorry Wordpress, you have been good to us for all those years - but its just time to move on ...


You can skip to the end and add a comment.
