Big WordPress story this week: “The WordPress 2.0.x Legacy Branch is Deprecated.”
Considering they’re up to 2.8.2 and are known to be working on 2.9, this isn’t all that surprising. (And who’s still running 2.0.x? Besides Bill Quick, I mean.)
Then again, “deprecated” is one of those words which is easily misread if you’re as sloppy as I am: you might see it as “depreciated,” or worse. Besides, who the hell knows what “deprecated” means, anyway?
Oh, right. McGehee does:
[I]t still works but people who still use it get nasty things said about them at the cool kids’ table and they always get picked last for kickball.
I expect someone with 100-percent W3C validation on every one of his stinking pages to show up here and point out that the cool kids quit using tables about the same time they quit using the <BLINK> tag.
