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…
