An update on Wavatars:
Yes, I know recent changes to Gravtar functionality (actually, a complete re-write from Ruby to PHP) has broken my Wavatars plugin. I haven’t found time to fix it yet. This is doubly annoying because WordPress 2.5 is coming out very soon, and it will have built-in support for Gravatars. I have no idea how my plugin will work with a system like that. My worry is that it won’t, or that my plugin will become an ugly hack that runs independent of the integrated system. I might need to make small changes, or I may need to re-write the blasted thing. I dunno.
I don’t really have time to spend on it, and now I’m facing a situation where I might fix the plugin only to have the whole thing become obsolete in a week. Or perhaps require a re-write. I could install the upcoming WordPress 2.5 release candidate and find out, but that would take more time I don’t have.
Anyway, all of this whining is here to you know that:
- Yes, I’m aware of the problem.
- No, I can’t fix it right now.
Several people have fixed my plugin themselves. Someone actually sent me a .diff this morning, which resolved the problem and also cleaned things up a bit. If I manage to get time I’ll update the plugin, but I can’t make any promises.
