WordPress 2.7 ‘Coltrane’ was released today. I noticed when I logged in today. ‘Coltrane’ is Max Mullenwegs (the WordPress founder) favorite saxophone player.
So I upgraded immediately (in under 1 minute using the Automatic Upgrade Plugin) and I liked what I saw.
As promised, there’s a completely new interface which I like. Comprehensive and conveniently arranged.
There are a lot of new features and improvements, like writing new posts and commenting right from the dashboard. Heck, you can even re-arrange the dashboard and put your favorite menu parts on top of it.
One of the other new features is automated upgrades, so after upgrading to WordPress 2.7 there’s no need for the extra plugin mentioned above any more. I like that very much.
There’s more, just watch the video below that explains most of it.
And of course Lorelle, the WordPress expert, has more information that you may want to check out.
I urge you to upgrade as soon as possible. It’s very worth while.
Let me know what you think of it.
