WordPress 2.6 is Out

If you are a WordPress blogger, you should know that the latest release, 2.6, is now out. I don’t use WordPress myself, but I do maintain a few WordPress blogs for some pastor friends (John, Buddy). I reviewed the new features and they are definately worth upgrading for.  The main iteams include:

  • Post Revisions: Wiki-like tracking of edits. Pretty cool if you create drafts of your posts before publishing them or have multiple authors and / or an  editor.
  • Press This!: Post from wherever you are on the web. A real sweet browser short cut you can add with a click and drag to make posting even easier.
  • Shift Gears: Turbo-speed your blogging. (Good idea if you have a slower or unreliable internet connection).
  • Theme Previews: See it before your audience does – Finally! I have been waiting for this one for a long time!
  • Additional (smaller) Features (including word count, image captions, reording of galleries, plugin interface upgrade, various bug fixes and more.
