Keeping track of a projects progress is a common desire and if the project you are interested in happens to be a WordPress plugin then there are a number of RSS feeds which are an important resource for you (replace plugin_slug with the plugins slug!).
The first of these contains all the support forum posts relevant to a particular plugin and the second is all the code changes that are happening in the plugins repository.
To keep track of these you have a couple of choices.
Firstly you could subscribe to them in your feed reader or if like me you like to receive emails for this sort of thing you can setup a cool tool called rss2email on your pc/server to email you new posts/changes.
After the recentepisodes of content theft that have been reported by myself and others Owen has written a new plugin called antileech which aims to make it easy to protect your sites against leechers. I have installed antileech on this site so please let me know if you are having any problems with my feeds.
Richard has been asking me for a while what WordPress plugins I use on this site. As Darren Rowse of has recently put up a list of his active plugins in a post called I’ll Show you Mine if You Show me Yours (WP Plugins). I thought it was time to share my list of “Must Have” WordPress plugins. So here is my list of must have WordPress plugins:
WordPress v2.0 Beta 1 was made available late last week and by the looks of the activity over on the special beta forum a lot of people are giving it a good test!
There is a growing list of plugins which have been tested with the beta for compatibility which can be found on the codex and everyone is welcome to contribute. I for one have to work on my version checker plugin to make it WordPress v2.0 compatible as the current css leaves it overlapping the main logout and profile links.
