Theme Directory Update 2/23

Last week I fixed most of the fixable tickets for the Theme Directory, switched to using WP_Query instead of the APIAPI An API or Application Programming Interface is a software intermediary that allows programs to interact with each other and share data in limited, clearly defined ways. for server-side rendering of themes, updated the WordPress-based Themes API with changes from the bbpressbbPress Free, open source software built on top of WordPress for easily creating forums on sites. one, and finished the import script for the new directory. @otto42 committed the new reviews code today, so we should be able to get those integrated today or tomorrow.

Which means that we’re going to launch on Wednesday or Thursday!

There is still a lot more work to be done, but everything that’s remaining can be added, changed, or improved with the new directory active. Most importantly we want to make it available to language sites, so that we have an internationalized theme directory, and there will be more to be done around that.
