EE releases v1.6.6, explains what’s taking so long

Two bits of ExpressionEngine news: first, version 1.6.6 was released, which is primarily a security update but also fixes a minor bug that I discovered concerning the quote tag. (See the change log for full details.)

And second, EllisLab CTO Derek Jones has posted an entry explaining the delays with EE 2.0. It’s pretty geeky, delving into some pretty heady PHP issues resulting from EE 2.0’s rebuild on CodeIgniter. I can’t wait to get EE 2.0, but I’m glad to see EllisLab taking their time, posting these updates to keep people in the loop, and continuing to support EE’s 1.x branch.
