Back in September 2014, Stream 2.0 was released with some significant changes. The most notable change is the transition from a plugin into a service. In this episode of WordPress Weekly, Jeff and I are joined by the project lead For XWP, Frankie Jarrett. Jarrett goes in-depth on the decision to turn Stream into a service. He also explains why it needs to be connected to a WordPress.com ID, what the team is doing regarding the enterprise, and why record data is stored in the cloud. Near the end of the interview, we discuss the lessons learned from how the plugin was shipped and communicated to customers.
