WordPress 2.7

After what seemed like about 2 weeks since WordPress 2.6.5 start to nag me across the top of the page, version 2.7 comes out. I’ve been kind of excited about this release since I’ve seen screen shots so I went ahead and installed it here.

It definitely looks more like an application now, as opossed to something that runs in the browser.

Newest feature that rocks?

Quick edit, right from the manage posts screen. Sweet! Also built-in automatic upgrade. It’s about time. That will definitely make it easier to install the always-too-soon updates to WP.

So far, this theme and most of the plugins check out. There is a minor problem with the Viddler plug-in and the dashboard page, but it’s working well otherwise.

If you are wondering if you should update, I would. Might as well get it out of the way. With the auto-updater built in, the next update should be a piece of cake.
