Edit Flow is a WordPress plugin used by many blogs, newspapers and magazine sites.
A few years ago, Edit Flow was acquired by Automattic, the parent company behind WordPress.com.
Automattic have now confirmed that Edit Flow is not part of their future plans.
The message from Automattic is this:
“I appreciate your patience as we chase this up. I’ve heard back from the team responsible and they’ve let me know that at this time there is no active development of the Edit Flow Plugin. That being the case – two things I can suggest are … It is possible to fork the plugin and make the changes needed – or use an alternative that has already been forked like PublishPress.”
