Yesterday, on wordpress development blog matt announced the launch of much awaited upgrade to WordPress after months of their hard work. As matt says “The result is a new way of interacting with WordPress that will remain familiar to seasoned users while improving the experience for everyone.”
New customizable dashboard is “focused on the most relevant tasks”
New navigation in “new design” separates the navigation bar into two namely primary functions and secondary functions, thus, reduces the “number of navigation options in half”.
Some other life saving functions are like “multi-file upload, built-in galleries, one-click plugin upgrades, tag management, built-in Gravatars, full text feeds, and faster load times sound interesting”. All these will reduce a lot of burden from self hosted bloggers.
If you make frequent backups and you’re interested in helping us out with development by testing the new code, download and install Release Candidate 1 of WordPress 2.5
As they say personally they can’t wait, i have to say that Goelji.com is now proudly powered by WordPress 2.5.
