Took the summer off from Manga+Press. It was good idea, since I’m now back with some fresh ideas on how to proceed with the next updates.
I’m branching Manga+Press. Manga+Press 3.0 will become Manga+Press NEXT, which will contain some of the feature updates that would have gone into 3.0 AND eliminating the embedded themes while old Manga+Press 2.9.3 will continue on its own. I’m also re-writing Manga+Press NEXT from the ground up, the reason being that there’s a lot of crap that’s still leftover from the old days plus I want it to be more flexible than it already is. Manga+Press 2.9.x will receive bug-updates as needed, but I’m not going to add new features to it, while any new features in the future will go to Manga+Press NEXT.
Release date for Manga+Press NEXT? That’s still in the air, as I’ve only just started development on it.
I’ve created an organization on GitHub for handling Manga+Press plugin development. You can spy on progress [here]. Why did I do this? Essentially, it was the only way for me to fork the repo in a way that would allow me to do a pull request back to the original repo.
Which leads me to my next update.
I’m still on the fence about the 3.0.0 update for a variety of reasons, namely the removal of the embedded child-themes, which worries me greatly. I’m not sure how many sites would break if I released the update.
Released a language pack update for Manga+Press 2.9. This mainly updates the languages for the embedded themes. It also corrects the TwentyFourteen child-theme’s stylesheet en-queuing issues. It is available for download on Github, [here], and should be available through the WordPress Plugin Repository shortly.
The beta version of Manga+Press 3.0 is available on Github for testing. Download [here]. Feel free to leave feedback on Manga+Press 3.0 in the comments section of this post, using the “Leave Reply” link below. Thanks!
