Right after I finished configuring and polishing my WordPress installation, WordPress go ahead and release WordPress 2.5:
WordPress 2.5, the culmination of six months of work by the WordPress community, people just like you. The improvements in 2.5 are numerous, and almost entirely a result of your feedback: multi-file uploading, one-click plugin upgrades, built-in galleries, customizable dashboard, salted passwords and cookie encryption, media library, a WYSIWYG that doesn’t mess with your code, concurrent post editing protection, full-screen writing, and search that covers posts and pages.
“The improvements in 2.5 are numerous” – Of course they are… I just spent all day yesterday setting up and configuring the old version. (Leo Laporte effect anyone?)
Anyway, the new interface looks great and upgrading was simple, so I’m not really complaining. Nice job WordPress!
