The most obvious change is the redesigned keyboard. Removing the Touchbar creates room for a row of physical function buttons and, in a nice touch, an escape key. This isn’t a perfect solution: the function buttons map to a confusing series of actions that can send windows flying around the screen with an errant keystroke, and the new physical off switch is too close to the backspace key.
An oldie… but necessary for your post Halloween trading activities
Over the weekend WordPress co-creator and Automattic CEO Matt Mullenweg called out Wix for copying GPL code from the WordPress mobile app and distributing it in its proprietary app. He identified two repositories that Wix forked in order to bring the GPL-licensed WordPress Rich Text Editor into its app.
Hold on a sec, I need to dance. Now that I’ve got that out of my system, let’s move on. In 2010, WebDevStudios released the first version of the Custom Post Type UI (CPTUI) plugin to the WordPress plugin directory. At the time, Custom Post … Read More

Matt Mullenweg, the founder of Automattic, downloaded his competitor Wix’s iOS app. It looked eerily familiar, and he confirmed it contains source code stolen from WordPress. He called them out on his blog, getting right to the point in addressing the problem: Your app’s editor is built with stolen code, so your whole app is now in violation of the license.

When you breach the terms of the GPL, the best plan is to put things right straight away, not misdirect away from the problem and condescend to the authors. Many were surprised when one of the pioneers of the open web accused a competitor of theft.

I woke up this morning to a blast of emails and PMs from various friends, all asking what’s up with my team at Wix stealing code from WordPress. To all who don’t know me, I’m an engineer working on the official Wix mobile app. I spend my days doing mobile architecture and writing code.

Anyone who knows me knows that I like to try new things – phones, gadgets, apps. Last week I downloaded the new Wix (closed, proprietary, non-open-sourced, non-GPL) mobile app. I’m always interested to see how others tackle the challenge of building and editing websites from a mobile device.
We recently completed a 10-part mini series on our podcast, CodePen Radio, in which we talk with 1) Sparkbox Episode 101: We talk to Ben Callahan and Rob Harr from Sparkbox about their experience running an agency – hiring employees, forecasting cash flow, diversifying income, how Sparkbox handles apprenticeships, and how they’re handling growth.
Exactly 3 days ago, the Joomla team issued a patch for a high severity vulnerability that allows remote users to create accounts and increase their privileges on any Joomla site. Both issues combined give the attackers enough power to easily upload backdoor files and get complete control of the vulnerable site.
Back in August, we highlighted potential changes to the WordPress editor that would improve the user experience. The team has since implemented some of the suggestions outlined in ticket #27159 into WordPress 4.7, including rearranging some of the toolbar buttons.
Every Thursday, our team connects for an hour in the morning in a Google Hangout. It’s the only time in the week where we’re all connecting, face to face, in a meaningful way. The purpose of these check-ins used to be primarily tactical.
Imagine if, during the Jim Crow era, a newspaper offered advertisers the option of placing ads only in copies that went to white readers. That’s basically what Facebook is doing nowadays. The ubiquitous social network not only allows advertisers to target users by their interests or background, it also gives advertisers the ability to exclude specific groups it calls “Ethnic Affinities.”
We are both active speakers, podcast guests and WordPress community members. A single recurring theme emerged from all these conversations – freelancers are having a tough time getting the skills and information they need to be successful. Most content targeted at freelancers is cheap and cheesy – “make six figures while sipping a mai tai at the beach”.

From a technical point of view there aren’t many changes needed in core to support templates for all post types, but there may be some things to consider regarding the best way to go about it.
WordPress 4.7 Beta 1 was released this evening with a long list of highlighted features that are certain to delight both end users and developers. Core contributors are asking for testing and feedback on some of the larger items ahead of the official release, slated for December 6.
WordPress 4.7 will introduce support for post type templates, an exciting new feature for theme and plugin developers. Page templates, which allow developers to specify a different layout or design for a page, are nearly as old as WordPress itself. For years developers have coveted that same functionality for other post types.
WordPress 4.7 Beta 1 is now available! This software is still in development, so we don’t recommend you run it on a production site. Consider setting up a test site just to play with the new version. To test WordPress 4.7, try the WordPress Beta Tester plugin (you’ll want “bleeding edge nightlies”).
