WordPress 3.0 Adventure

There has been a good bit of discussion over the past 18 or so months on the WordPress Blogging software. I have personally have tried numerous times to create a riveting blog structure that would almost in essence act like a cms. Yes a daunting task I agree. The biggest questions was to use WP or use WP MU. WPMU gave more functionality, easier creation of multiple blog instances, not to mention the really nice plug-ins.

Unfortunately, I never could successfully make this happen, either lack of knowledge on my part or lack of time. Finally though, with WP 3.0 life is simple. With the new features that have been added, such as WPMU and regular WP are one install and not separate programs, to widgets and one of my favorites one button press upgrade for ALL of your MU blogs. There are numerous new items that have been added to this new realize that I want to highlight.

Apple Bans Apps built using forthcoming Flash CS5 translation tool!

By now, most of you have probably seen or heard about Apple iPhone SDK 4.0 and a small item in 4.0 Terms of Services, notably 3.3.1:
“Applications that link to Documented APIs through an intermediary translation or compatibility layer or tool are prohibited.”

This is clearly a shot at Adobe's Flash Professional CS5 forthcoming capability that will enable the compiling of a Flex/Flash application into a native iPhone application.

Of course Flex/Flash developers around the world are angered by this announcement.

How will this news effect the CS5 Launch on Monday? Be there and find out!
