WordPress uptodate checker

September 26, 2007 by Michael

Yesterday i’ve installed WordPress 2.3 without too much problems. The new uptodate check for plugins is nice, out of question, but already yesterday i thought: hm, everybody is whining about Microsoft products phoning home, nobody gives a shit about wordpress doing the same.

The Nighwatchman has an in depth analysis about the data transferred to api.wordpress.org, read it here: Datenschutzproblem in WordPress 2.3 (Privacyproblem in WordPress 2.3).

I will use the following hack to omit my URL. Alternatively, uptodate checking can be completely disabled with this plugin.
