Now Available: WordPress 2.7

11 Dec ’08 — 2 Comments

Oooh, a snazzy new interface was just released for WordPress, the blogging engine that powers this and millions of other websites. If you don’t already blog and have ever wanted to, it couldn’t be easier!

The release promises to make blogging take fewer clicks, which is impressive, because right now it really does not take that many clicks already. 🙂

Not only that, but the update now includes automatic upgrades! Hooray! No more FTP!

I am curious, do those of you who use WordPress.com to host your blog already see the new, snazzy interface? For those of you who — like me — host your own blog, do you plan to immediately upgrade (have you already)?

Here’s a video highlighting the changes:

  1. I thought I had it and was loving it, even though it seemed more like a different face than an actual upgrade…then I realized that’s exactly what it was 🙂 The new Dashboard and not 2.7! Do we have access to it yet? I didn’t think we were getting it as soon as you were.

  2. I would assume that WordPress.com had it before it was available to the general public (as a stable, normal release). My understanding is that the .com site gets things earlier to help the developers work out the kinks. 🙂
