from the ground up will certainly introduce some bugs. If Dan doesn't
have the time to fix them or, at least, there isn't a reliable,
central, place for PP users to gather and support themselves, then the
next gen PP could be a disaster.
I was holding off on upgrading Wordpress for a while because I didn't
want to break podpress. I couldn't wait any longer. I must say - the
latest podpress does work fine with wp2.7 when used with the disable
post revisions plugin.
I, myself, will not jump on PP 9.0 and will wait for 9.1 or 9.2.
Thanks Dan I'll donate, again, with the new working version.

I'll bet if someone hired him to upgrade PodPress, it would be done in
a hurry... but then, the finished product might belong to that
*customer,* not to the world.
By the same token, PodPress *is* open source. If anyone else with the
chops wants to take it on, no one is stopping them. I've said this
Unless you're a programmer who can fix it, or a customer who can fund
it, we don't have the right to expect anything.
