    I just blogged about this, and it never occurred to me to use the term “beta.” I’m no longer sure about the meaning of beta.

    Now’s definitely the time to start playing with WordPress 2.0 (beta). It’s got surprisingly few bugs after a whole bunch of people got together two weekends ago and knocked out some 100 bugs on the list, and the previous weekend, when a few dozen more were squashed. It’s now pretty stable; I even have it running on one live blog (but I’m also quite capable of fixing WP should it break). Don’t try that at home.

There is no substitute for running a standalone version with your own web host – you can freely choose the plugins and themes you want, keep better track on your stats, etc.

  11. Write quite good.Give you to encourage, next time again come to your crest once(*__*)
