Post By Email: OPW is over!

I can hardly believe it, but my summer internship is drawing to a close.

This week, I released version 1.0.4 of the Post By Email plugin, comprised of minor bugfixes, tests, and documentation as I prepped the project for its evaluation phase.  I’ve added quite a bit of info to the readme page, including better installation and configuration instructions.

Those of you following along on Trac may have noticed that I’ve kind of run out of tasks.  🙂

Today is the official end of the OPW and GSoC programs, so I’ll be taking a short break from development work during the evaluation period.  But this isn’t goodbye!  I definitely plan to stick around and continue working on and supporting this project in the future — so keep those bug reports coming!

I do want to take a second to thank all of you for being here for me as I learned the ins and outs of WordPress this summer.  I feel really good about where this project landed, and I know it’s because I had so many amazing resources every step of the way.  So, to everyone who left me comments, answered my questions on IRC or Twitter, reviewed my code, tested, reported bugs, offered suggestions, spoke at WCSF, or even just edited a Codex page or wrote a quick tutorial now and then: THANK YOU.  It really made the difference in those moments when I felt frustrated or overwhelmed.

I don’t know exactly what the future holds, but I do know that I love being a part of WordPress, and I’m excited to continue working with y’all.  Let’s keep in touch.  🙂
