v0.5.1: maintenance release

We tagged a maintenance release on Wednesday evening that cleaned up a few rough ends in v0.5. These include:

On Wednesday evening, I also had the chance to update our roadmap to 1.0. The next scheduled release is 0.6 and will feature such awesome goodness (we hope) as better support for custom post types, custom task lists, and a refactored editorial calendar with story budget view.

Edit Flow v0.5: Introducing the editorial calendar

After a bit of a hiatus, meet Edit Flow v0.5. The editorial calendar has been on the feature request from the beginning. With this release Edit Flow takes another step toward full news-cycle management. I’m personally quite enthusiastic about this release, as it play a crucial role in my news organizations decision to use WordPress / Edit Flow as the print CMS for the daily newspaper that I manage. This release lays a foundation for several exciting enhancements to come.

Features introduced in this release:

EditFlow Calendar

  • Drag & Drop posts
  • 7 day calendar view

Filter by Custom Status

  • Writers: Show only posts assigned to me
  • Editors: Show only Draft status (great for managing deadlines)
