The contributors to WordPress have outdone themselves this time, releasing v2.6 almost a month ahead of schedule. You can read all about it in the announcement on the development blog or watch the following video highlighting some new features:
It’s fantastic to see post revisions included as a sign of WordPress’ increasing usefulness as a CMS, and the PressThis! bookmarklet looks like it will be particularly useful for bloggers who do a lot of commentary and linking to other sites. The theme previewing function will be especially useful for new users to WordPress, who will undoubtedly be previewing dozens of themes before settling on one. Also, I’m just loving the use of Gears to speed up the admin interface!
A hearty congratulations to the 75+ people who freely donated their time and expertise to making WordPress an even better tool! Download it now.
