WordPress 2.7 released!

I’m coming out of my blog-slumber long enough to mention that WordPress 2.7 is out today! I’ve been running it on this blog since early betas and it totally rocks. The admin redesign (yes, again) is even better than last time, by far, and there is no reason not to upgrade right this minute! (Well, there are a few technical ones if you have plugins or themes with compatibility issues, but between 2.5 and 2.7 it’s not terribly likely in most cases.) Once you’re at 2.7, there’s an auto-upgrade function built in to the core of WordPress now, so not only can you update plugins (and now install them from the admin panel!), you can upgrade WordPress to the next version in a couple of clicks when it’s released! Not this time, of course, next time.

I have a few things I’d like to publish here that won’t fit on Twitter and will be easier to reference here than on IRC where I still may have discussed some of it already (in the #citrt channel). Now to find the time! Hopefully soon. Poor neglected blog… :-) Maybe with such a cool new backend I’ll post more often. Not that I posted at all while running the betas and release candidates…
