Still working on the plugin

Still working on the plugin, but making great progress. Almost done with the update functionality, a chore which has been complicated by PHP's lack of typing and the need to use strings for manipulating binary data. And PHP's lack of unicode support (!). I'm a week behind schedule, but if I can finish these update messages in the next few days, I may be able to catch up. Can see the light at the end of the tunnel...

Working on the plugin

Still working on the WordPress plugin and it's going pretty well. PHP is a relatively easy language to pick up, albeit a quirky one, especially compared to stricter, strongly-typed languages I've used in the past. I've already finished implementing the SOAP endpoint that officially turns WordPress into a Content Provider and am now working on the real-time update functionality. After that I'll finish it with plugin semantics like installing the plugin and extending it to the multi-user version of WordPress, MU. All is going well!

Change of plans...

I have switched gears and am now working on a WordPress plugin that would allow WordPress bloggers to instantly and easily make their blogs subscribable, without any 3rd party support. Since I don't know PHP, it's going to be interesting going. This one may take a few weeks. I'll keep the blog updated with my progress.
