Re: WordPress 3.0 new content types
@anointed – There is no audio chat! It’s all text. What you read is what actually happened.
WP 3.0 isn’t even out of the gate yet; when WP 3 actually gets released, we’ll see where Andy and the core devs take it.
@modemlooper – if you check out what the BP Wiki component does, it already uses custom post types (it’s a development version). So custom post types for BP is possible via plugins. However, for the core (as stated above), it’s whatever the dev team decides.
