Re: Reassuring updates on the development version!

Note that there’s no need to set the plugin order in your plugin unless your plugin must be loaded earlier or later than other plugins. Most plugins do not need this.

Re: Reassuring updates on the development version!

I just saw the new tags, variable and if_variable. How would one use it? Perhaps examples of this can be added to the wiki soon?

In fact, I never understoond what the rsd tag was good for.

Thanks for the new updates!

Re: Reassuring updates on the development version!

See this thread – they’re template variables.

<txp:rsd/> just returns a link element used for XML-RPC.

Re: Reassuring updates on the development version!

Wow, there’s some great stuff in there. I’m still most excited about nested tag parsing, because I’ve found myself using asy_wondertag a lot lately. Having article and article_custom act as container tags makes a lot of sense, though. Powerful as forms can be, sometimes they seem like overkill. Well done all around. :-)

Any clue what this version will mean in terms of plugin compatibility yet? What about a release timeframe?

I’m pretty sure there aren’t any backwards-incompatible changes. I haven’t run into any problems running and developing plugins on svn.

Re: Reassuring updates on the development version!

Once again, ruud demonstrates he is psychic. Yesterday I wanted to add a multi_edit form to the plugin I’m developing but it didn’t work as expected. Looked thru the core and found the reason: it checks to see if it’s on the article list page before calling poweredit.

I mused “wouldn’t it be more useful if it didn’t check for that so it can be used on any tab” and — SHAZZAM — ruud commits the image tab mod which includes exactly that functionality.

/me bows head in appreciation.
