Well, I was excited today to see that WordPress 2.5 is now released for general public consumption! 2.5 is a pretty extensive overhaul of the WordPress framework. The aesthetics of the overhaul will be the first thing you notice but the changes are legion. To take a look at a more comprehensive list of the changes, click here.
For those of you who read this and you are a WordPress beginner, you may not understand or even be scared of a WordPress upgrade. If that is true for you, I have good news! WordPress has a new plugin available that, once it is installed, will automatically install WordPress for you so that you don’t have to go through the difficult process of manually updating your software. For the plugin, you need to click here.
I have not used 2.5 enough yet to make a decision about whether I like it or not. I am interested to play with it, however, and see how it works out. I’m interested to hear from you as well!
What do you think?
