If you stick around this site for any length of time, you’ll know that I’m a big fan of WordPress, the fantastic open-source blogging and CMS platform. I’ve gotten to know it’s (mostly) intelligent methods of operation over the last year and a bit, and I must say that I’m impressed.
But WordPress 2.5 represents a big step forward in usability. The administration area has undergone a complete redesign, making for a better user experience when doing the important tasks of content management. Today the WordPress development team announced Release Candidate 1 of v2.5, and take you on a tour of the highlights of the new user interface, including a new rich text editor, better filed uploading (including multi-file uploading), a new gallery feature, auto-updating of plugins, and more.
I’ll be moving this site over very soon.
