I think I heard the huge collective sigh of relief from bloggers the world over this morning when they checked their email and read that their Premium News Themes are compatible with WordPress 2.5.
Here is a portion of the blurb that Adii sent out:
We are happy to announce that all of our Premium News Themes (Original, NewsPress, Flash News, Gazette Edition & Live Wire) is compatible with WordPress 2.5 and that you can upgrade to the new version (of WP) without worrying about any incompatibilities.
The only incompatibility we found, whilst testing was related to the Popularity Contest plugin. According to the plugin author, he is working on a fix and will release an updated, WP2.5-compatible version soon. Unfortunately we can't update the plugin accordingly and thus take no responsibility if you upgrade to WP2.5 and find that the plugin doesn't work.
Oh well, no great loss. I suppose we can all live without the Popularity Contest plugin for awhile… much better than finding out that your sidebar ends up in the header in Firefox or something equally horrific. 🙂
BTW, I use Adii's Premium News Theme on my RosalindGardner.com blog and will be upgrading to WordPress 2.5 as soon as it is available through Fantastico.
