Desk Mess Mirrored 2.0

Posted by Edward Caissie on January 11, 2012 in News, WordPress |

Desk Mess Mirrored version 2.0 should be showing up in your Dashboard|Updates later today if you have not already seen it. Go ahead, get the new version! It was great to add the new features and better documentation … I know that’s a bit geeky, but there you go.

It’s not so much that 2.0 is any sort of milestone, per se, as I generally follow a similar version numbering system as WordPress; although I must admit there was definitely a push to do something significant because it is a point-zero release after all.

That being said, I added the functionality of some of the core supported post-formats (aside, quote, and status), which was the big push for this release, as well as improving the overall typography.

For a full list of the changes, please have a look at the changelog below.
