The discourse-tagging plugin had a good run, but the time has come to make it a core part of Discourse. @eviltrout and I spent the last few days pulling that plugin into core and merged it today. If you’re using the discourse-tagging plugin, it will no longer be loaded after you upgrade.

Now that tagging isn’t a plugin, we’ll have an easier time working on some of the features people have been asking for and solve some problems we’ve known about for a while. Some examples:
- Tag groupings
- Better topic list filtering with tags
- A better UI for managing tags
- Performance problems
