Co-Authors Plus makes it easy to add multiple bylines to a given post, and has full support for custom post types. Out just a moment ago, v2.6.3 has the following improvements:
- AJAX user search is back to searching against first name, last name, display name, email address and user ID. The method introduced in v2.6.2 didn’t scale well across hundreds of users.

- Bug fix: Resolved incorrect caps check against user editing an already published post. Thanks to Doug in the WordPress.org forums for the help.
Please post any questions, bug reports, feature requests, etc. in the WordPress.org forums. If you want to contribute code, I’m eyeballing co-author management in Quick Edit and guest author functionality for v2.7.
For WordPress.com VIPs, this update has already been deployed to the shared plugins repo.
