Re: Support for 0.9 – how long?
I actually said December, not November, at the soonest for my plugins to start supporting 1.0 officially.
I think 0.9 should have security releases indefinitely, at least for another year.
December 2010 would be a good retire date IMHO.
But I certainly don’t expect 0.9 to be given new features at this point.
Some people simply won’t be able to use 1.0 on shared hosts with several plugins. Their host will terminate their account for excessive resource use if there are bursts of activity at certain times of the day. So 0.9 will be their only option (or switching to lighter software).
ps. the 2.0 branch of WordPress was it’s best version
