WordPress most definitely depends on the goodwill of plugin and theme
developers. Open source, open bug tracking, open development, this is

WordPress code continues to mature with the diverse participation of
the development community. I would rather have a forward moving
WordPress, than a backwards compatible one.

WordPress now has a known release cycle.  2.3 is scheduled for
September 20, 2007
http://wordpress.org/about/roadmap/  In the weeks before, don't leave
it to someone else to make sure that your favorite plugins work well.

http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins has been a awesome step forward,
and I look forward to how update notification and additional features
can improve the quality of the experience.
