Now that version 0.5 has been officially released, I wanted to go ahead and put up an official thread on version 0.6. Don't worry. It'll be some time before we've made it to 0.6. I really enjoyed getting all of the feedback on version 0.5, so much so that I figured I'd start this discussion early.
I'll start off by listing some of the things I plan on doing.
Drop-down menus by default
I've laid the groundwork in 0.5 for this by adding JS and CSS, but I wanted to have a transitional period where I didn't break everyone's child themes.
Drop-down menus will be a default in 0.6. I also plan on writing a plugin that'll give you more control from the admin with your page and category menus.
Separation of comments, trackbacks, and pingbacks
This is something many of you have been hoping for, so the discussion is on the table. My basic questions are:
* Should trackbacks and pingbacks be grouped together or should they be separate?
* Should there be an option to do both?
* Where should they go? Above the comment form or below?
Comments template action hooks
I wanted to add more hooks in version 0.5, but I thought it'd be best to wait until we figured out what we're doing with the separation of comments and pings. I find it's best to try and avoid future conflicts.
* Where would you like to see new hooks placed?
This is something I've been really looking forward to coding. Right now, we only have the Holy Grail layout (3 columns, centered content). But, I want to add in a few default stylesheets to allow you all to more easily create cool child themes.
* 2 columns (content / widgets)
* 2 columns (widgets /content)
* 3 columns (content / widgets / widgets)
* 3 columns (widgets / widgets / content)
* 3 columns (widgets / content / widgets)
I think that about covers all of the main Web layouts. I also need to come up with a naming system for these things.
Your thoughts, your opinions
Some things you all wanted didn't quite make it into v.0.5, but anything's up for discussion at this point. Feel free to talk about what you'd like to see in the future.
