Job Manager 0.7 Released
AKA: The “No Unifying Theme” release.
Along those lines, there are a bunch of varied new features!

The big feature in the next version will be the ability to create a public job site for (optionally) charging people to post jobs on your site. If you have ideas or suggestions for how you’d like to see this work, check out the [URL="http://code.google.com/p/wordpress-job-manager/wiki/Roadmap"]Roadmap[/URL] and leave comments on the appropriate issue.
Version 0.8 will have a slightly longer development cycle than previous versions – I expect the stable release to be out in early July. I’m travelling for much of the next 6 weeks, so rather than making promises I can’t keep, I’ll push feature development for 0.8 until June. I’ll still be fixing any bugs that crop up in 0.7, of course.
There are several more translations in progress, I’ll be releasing them as they’re completed, throughout the 0.7 lifecycle. On a related note, the German translation needs someone to keep it up to date – if you speak German and have some time to translate strings, please [URL="http://fixunix.com/contact/"]contact me[/URL]!
For now, go and [URL="http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/job-manager/"]upgrade to version 0.7[/URL], and let me know what you think!
