WordPress and WordPress MU will cease to be separate products. Incredibly, there doesn’t seem to be a decent announcement. The guy who owns WordPress mentions it at a conference, the wordpress developer blogs talk about it as fact, and the process has already being tracked on the WordPress Trac website, but but I haven’t been able to find a formal written announcement with details.
Personally, I think the merge will be good for us. It will make it more difficult for web hosts to discriminate against MU users, who sometimes like to block WP MU from being installed. It will make it more difficult for WordPress to discriminate against MU users, who like to keep MU lagging behind all updates, and only provided half-assed support and fixes.
What do you think?
