WordPress 2.6 final is released

A month ahead of its schedule, WordPress 2.6 is released now. You can download it from wordpress.org.

Below are key-features which I will be exploring today…

  • Post Revisions: Wiki-like tracking of edits. Good for multi-author blogs.
  • Press This bookmarklet for quick posting from anywhere on the web
  • Shift Gears: Faster Admin panel
  • Theme Previews: Good for theme developers
  • Word count display below Save and Publish buttons
  • Ability to change the location of the wp-config.php file for better security.
  • Multiple plugin activate/deactivate at once
  • Improved galleries with drag-and-drop sorting

Coincidentally Theme Preview feature is arriving at the time when I am in the middle of developing a new theme for this blog.

Anyway will post more about it once I use this new version. In meantime, enjoy video tour…
