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)

If you haven’t upgraded yet, download it from the Plugin Directory or directly from within WordPress.
