SyntaxHighlighter Plus No Longer Being Maintained

SyntaxHighlighter Plus, a fork of the original SyntaxHighlighter plugin by Viper007Bond was first released on the 16th of December, 2007. For over a year, it has served many WordPress blogs that were having issues with Viper007Bond’s original SyntaxHighlighter plugin which was not being maintained for a very long time before my fork’s initial release.

The fork’s purpose was to address some of the unsolved issues of the original plugin. A few months ago Alex, the original author of the SyntaxHighlighter has released version 2.0 of this wonderful script. It was written from the ground up and has fixed a lot of issues people were having with the old script.

Now, Viper007Bond has released his implementation based on the new code, and has renamed his project to SyntaxHighlighter Evolved. It is also a brand new codebase and it has fixed a number of issues users have reported to both his and my plugins.

The users of both plugins should be excited to see Viper007Bond’s come back, I know I am. :)

As a result of this, I am now abandoning SyntaxHighlighter Plus in favour of Viper007Bond’s SyntaxHighlighter Evolved. If and when the latter project is no longer being maintained, I will fork it again and make sure we, the WordPress users, will always have this wonderful syntax highlighter at our disposal.

SyntaxHighlighter Plus v1.0b2 Released

I have just updated SyntaxHighlighter Plus to v1.0b2. Please see the project page.

If you have been using v1.0b2 already, please re-download the package and overwrite the existing one, as WordPress had mistakenly put the SVN version tag for v1.0b2.

Change log:

I will contribute to the Alex’s SyntaxHighlighter project for problems and bugs people have reported. Contributed code will then be merged back to SyntaxHighlighter Plus.

WordPress Plugins Recommendation List

I always wanted to write about WordPress plugins, it’s like Firefox: it works well out-of-box, but the goodies are all in the plugins (Firefox call them extensions). Some day in the future I’ll probably write about my 40 odd Firefox extensions, but today, let me talk about what plugins I have installed on my current blog. :)

Before I go on talking about the plugins, you should know that this by no means is a complete list of useful plugins even though I have tried much more than what is in the list.

Here it begins, the list is in alphabetic order.
