yeah, that certainly looks promising the way it has been touted as, but
they are still working on it & I don't think that its even in a beta
or if it is, then its a private beta since they don't have any more info
the website!! :)
>From the looks of the things, this is not gonna be out(as a beta or
product) anytime before WP1.6 is out as stable!! Besides, we are
about the plugins that can be bundled with WP1.6, no? And Elixir is
be a plugin repository!!
btw, since we have an official plugin repository at wp-plugins.org, why
have it integrated with WordPress? Users can have a tab in the admin
where they can browse the available plugins(via RSS or XMLRPC) and
the ones they like directly from within that interface? Sort of what
plugin manager does & what Elixir is aimed at. This can be a nice
& wp-themes.org can be integrated like that as well.
