WordPress的创始人Matt Mullenweg 5月23日在他的博客分享了他的关于WordPress发展方向的新想法:WordPress简约版(Radically Simplified WordPress)。Mullenweg在他的blog中提到社交化和手机平台将是WordPress第四个阶段的发展方向,值得庆祝的是本周末WordPress将迎来他的第九个生日。

简约之美

WordPress was first for pure blogging, then became embraced as a CMS (though some people still deny this), is seeing growth and innovation in being used as an application platform (I think we’re about a third of the way through that), and just now starting to embrace social and mobile — the fourth phase of our evolution.

WordPress起初只是一款blog工具,随着发展又成为CMS系统,虽然很多人不认同WordPress作为CMS,但WordPress作为一款应用平台的发展和进步是不容小视的。Mullenweg对WordPress新的期望是:精简、快速(“shorter, simpler, and faster”)。

这对很多blogger来说是个好消息,鉴于最近抱怨WordPress臃肿、庞大的声音越来越高,Mullenweg提到社交化和手机平台(主要是iOS和Android平台)的重要性,所以我们有希望最先在手机平台上见识到Matt口中的精简、快速的WordPress系统。

WordPress is going to turn nine years old this Sunday and I’m as excited to wake up in the morning and work on it as I was the day we started. I think when we turn 10 in 2013 the ways people experience and publish with WordPress will be shorter, simpler, faster.

我对WordPress的未来充满希望,因为他是商业化的、有强大支撑的网络平台。曾经我对商业化一个免费的东西非常抵触,如今我认为不寻求商业化的东西很难生存下去,客户服务和软件质量都难以得到保障。最后,让我们一起来庆祝WordPress第九个生日。
