Micropub for WordPress 2.1.0 Released

Micropub version 2.1.0 for WordPress was released. It contains no exciting new features as Micropub is fairly stable.

  • Micropub now checks WordPress capabilities more effectively. It will now throw an error if the user tries to edit a post authored by another user if they do not have that permission, for example.
  • Default Titles and captions weren’t being set for images when uploaded.
  • Fix a variety of timezone related bugs
  • Added support for the proposed draft scope. If the token has this scope and not the create scope, then it will only allow posts to be created as drafts.
  • Return the created URL in the Micropub response to support an automation use case.
  • Add filters to allow a custom post type or custom taxonomy to be set during creation.
  • No longer support the ‘post’ scope as permission to do anything. It will map to a combination of create and update.
  • Misc unit test tweaks for consistency.
