WordPress 2.8 “Baker” Released

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!
