The b2 future – WordPress

Michel’s back, and announced details about the future of b2.
WordPress is going to be the next version of b2 and is developed by Mike Little and Matt Mullenweg. I’ve exchanged brief emails with both on different matters and hope to continue exchanging ideas and code as we’re working on a similar codebase. Tim has more on the announcement too.
With b2++ and WordPress around, the future of b2 looks good! 🙂
On another note, there’s a security hole in the blog import tools shipped with b2. I bundled these scripts with b2++. The easiest way of fixing that is by deleting gm-2-b2.php and blogger-2-b2.php.
