Is WordPress 2.1 Naughty or Nice?

Wordpress 2.1

As you maybe already noticed in the article at from Aaron Brazell, the plugin developers are encouraged to update their plugings. So I start and install WordPress 2.1a3 and trapped direct into the biggest upcomming problem for plugin developers: The visual editor (TinyMCE) is updated and didn’t support anymore a Button integration in the old way (with buttonsnap.php).

I said to myself : Ok, no problem let’s have a look in the WP Codex pages for the new function description, but for my own suprise : There is simply no documentation or link on :-(

After I google through the web I found only two plugins which are at the moment able to handle a button integration (Anarchy Media Player and Viper’s Video Quicktag). I need now to do it by hand in the same way , but I’m real unhappy about this fact.

Hope the WordPress developers remind this gap until they release WP 2.1…
Otherwise I must ask :

Is WordPress 2.1 Naughty or Nice?

UPDATE 20.01.2007 :

Today I finished a short description, for a work around the button problem. See this post

    I must say : Horrible and again horrible…

    After 6(!) hours I got working the new wordTube button under WordPress 2.1 TinyMCE editor. It’s now ok, but not what I like to publish. I will start maybe later to rebuild buttonsnap.php for WordPress 2.1 , but I feel my programming knowledge are really not enough for that…

    Did you report this as an issue on Trac?

    No not now, I’m not a skilled programmer, so I only ask some people in the wordpress support for help. As you can see I find a solution by study two plugins…

    The codex documentation must be updated before 2.1 get released,
    otherwise other plugins get problems
