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 A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. These can be free in the WordPress.org Plugin Directory https://wordpress.org/plugins/ or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party, 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 An open source project by Edgewall Software that serves as a bug tracker and project management tool for WordPress. 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 A bug is an error or unexpected result. Performance improvements, code optimization, and are considered enhancements, not defects. After feature freeze, only bugs are dealt with, with regressions (adverse changes from the previous version) being the highest priority. 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 Internet Relay Chat, a network where users can have conversations online. IRC channels are used widely by open source projects, and by WordPress. The primary WordPress channels are #wordpress and #wordpress-dev, on irc.freenode.net. 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. 🙂
