New WordPress 2.5 Out!

WordPress 2.5 has been released and it’s a big one – so what’s new you ask? Well grab a cup a coffee and pull up a chair, this is going to take a while.

  • Redesigned admin interface
  • New dashboard with a quick view on all the important goings on
  • Multifile uploading with progress bars
  • One-click upgrading of plugins
  • Built in photo gallery
  • Media Library
  • Better WYSIWYG Post and Page editor
  • Search posts and page built in
  • Tag editor
  • EXIF Extraction
  • Concurrent editing protection
  • Password strength meter
  • and a lot lot more…

There have also been many improvements under the hood such as database optimization, secure cookies, salted passwords and inline documentation among others.

This is one of the biggest upgrades I have seen to WordPress in recent memory and I highly recommend checking it out.
