EditFlow, recently seeing 0.7.5 come to light, is one of the must-haves for blogs that do any editorial work and any sites that manage multiple users for publishing content and apparently everyone is going to experience it first-hand with the upcoming release of v3.6 of WordPress as it’s being integrated into core!
We’ve known that this is coming and I seriously can’t wait for it to come out and with the way that online publishing is headed I believe this might be the single-most important feature to be released as more and more publishers are requiring even better tools for their needs – you can always roll your own or use other plugins or 3rd party services but there’s nothing like going native.
And why would you want to use anything else if EditFlow provides most of what you’ll need? Sure, the .org plugin is a bit heavy and there are features that I’m not completely in love with but it works perfectly for our needs (and most plugins can be stripped of more than a few neat but unnecessary features). You can see that our overview video here that we use EditFlow to get contributors on this blog acclimated.
The EditFlow team plans on having version 0.8 out around the same time as 3.6 drops and they are looking for people to help contribute – so jump in and watch or star or whatever you want with it!
Great work guys and I’m watching intently on the development and subsequent release. Keep it coming!
