What's New in This Version:
- Updated inline documentation throughout.
- Complete simplification and re-cajiggering of HTML structure and class and ID names. This is likely to screw up your existing child themes. Beware.
- Speed and logic optimizations all around, including minified and combined javascript (reversable with the ‘debug’ option).
- Permalinks for Rolling Archives and livesearch (finally).
- Rolling Archives now caches 5 pages to either side of its position for faster navigation.
- Configuration of amount of widget containers (thus sidebars) is now automatic, depending on whether they are active or not.
- Added ‘Below Page Header’, ‘After Posts’ and ‘Page Footer’ widget areas.
- WP media manager’s horrible embedded CSS is now removed by K2.
- Cleaned up the options page.
- Support for WordPress 3.0: Multi-sites, the menu system and custom backgrounds.
- Removed various deprecated functions.
- Removed our styles sub-system entirely. Use child-themes instead.
- Single attachments, shown with image.php, have been updated.
- Option to disable K2's styling (style.css), for more control and much nicer child theme CSS.
- Automatically resizes the smallest of the large YouTube embeds (560px wide) to 500px width (to cancel, remove/overwrite k2_resize_embeds() in your child theme).
- Added support for using k2-loop-category-<slug>.php
- Added option to use the page name when page is selected for home.
- Removed asides functionality (use semantic class, CSS and plugins instead).
- Added styling for the visual editor in the admin.
- Added comments pagination.
- Moved ping- and trackbacks inline with comments.
- Check to see if a version of jQuery later than the one we ship with (1.4.2) has been registered and don’t overwrite it. This really ought to be native to WP.
- A plethora of bug fixes and compatibility tweaks.
