WordPress 2.8 (codename “Baker”) was released this evening, and it’s a nice evolution of everyone’s favourite blogging engine/Content Management System.
2.8 polishes up the already stellar 2.7 admin interface with the ability to view and install themes directly, as well as hugely improved widget management. The last item means that we’re going to see a lot more themes making more extensive use of widgets I think!
Speaking of themes, my free theme The Erudite was tested on pre-release versions of 2.8 and should work perfectly out of the box. And, since it’s in the WordPress free themes directory, you’ll be able to add it right from the admin interface in 2.8!
