WordPress 2.7 released!

By Mohnish On December 11, 2008 Under Blogging, Tips and Tricks

I’m Blogging this from WordPress 2.7 and its fantastic! I was one of the 1st 1000 users who upgraded to WordPress 2.7 and I’m so glad about it! 😀 The first thing you’ll notice about 2.7 is its new interface. From the top down, we’ve listened to our feedback and thought deeply about the design and the result is a WordPress that’s just plain faster. Nearly every task you do on your blog will take fewer clicks and be faster in 2.7 than it did in a previous version. (Download it now or Mirror, or read on for more.)

Next you’ll begin to notice the new features subtly sprinkled through the new interface: the new dashboard that you can arrange with drag and drop to put the things most important to you on top, QuickPress, comment threading, paging, and the ability to reply to comments from your dashboard, the ability to install any plugin directly from WordPress.org with a single click, and sticky posts.

Digging in further you might notice that every screen is customizable. Let’s say you never care about author on your post listings — just click “Screen Options” and uncheck it and it’s instantly gone from the page. The same for any module on the dashboard or write screen. If your screen is narrow and the menu is taking up too much horizontal room, click the arrow to minimize it to be icon-only, and then go to the write page and drag and drop everything from the right column into the main one, so your posting area is full-screen. (For example I like hiding everything except categories, tags, and publish. I put categories and tags on the right, and publish under the post box.)

For a visual introduction to what 2.7 is, check out this video (available in HD, and full screen):

P.S – This is my 100th post and I’m so glad I made it with WP 2.7! 😀

    I haven’t upgraded yet, but I have used it a little bit and like the new interface. However, it is the way updates work that really excite me. It will be nice to be able to upgrade wordpress from the admin panel.

    I just started using it, all I would put on my wish list is color. I find it easy to navigate and less clutter. All I want is some color.
