Morning! We’re going through the final touches of the preview, working out the nerves, and exorcising the stress!

If you are live blogging (or just plain blogging) the ExpressionEngine 2.0 Preview please post a link to your blog in this thread to make it easy for the community to find. Thanks!

Not there, but very excited for the opportunity to be there virtually.

And let’s just go ahead and pick a hashtag for Twitter, too: #ee2p

Just an hour to go now. Wish I was there! :-(

Hope it all goes well in Austin. All the best to the EE team. I’m sure you will all do a fantastic job even if you just sit there and show screen-shots of whatever it is you have cooking!! wink

Best wishes,

Mark

I wish I was there in Austin too, but I’ve already commissioned a friend of mine who is going to pick me up an EE tshirt, so I can at least pretend that I went.  Will there be an official recap/overview posted on the EE site later today?

No one is live blogging this?! You’ve got to be kidding me! Dagnabit, us folks who couldn’t go need something, anything. :( Question: Does the preview include CI 2.0? I’m guessing it does but I just want to be sure.

A bunch of us are in that Meebo room, but no one who is actually at the preview has stepped in yet.

OK, so I really like:
1) CI integration
2) jQuery!!!
3) CP change

Here is what I came wanting to hear:
1) super charged media/file manager with versioning
2) page-level hierarchy
3) menu tags that can kick out unordered list based menus (full hierarchy, children, siblings, etc.) and identify the current page with a class
4) built-in CSS & Javascript compression and acceleration like PHPSpeedy
5) full support (user accounts, comments, etc.) for OpenID (not attached to an EE specific account; creating an account on the admin side should be as easy as pasting in an OpenID URL and setting the role, done!)
