WordPress 2.7 RC2 gets released
WordPress 2.7 release candidate 2 just got released. At this point it’s pretty much how it would look like for the final release of WordPress 2.7. The new interface design is much sleeker than the current design you are used to using in WordPress.
The new icons and layout are now all in place. Although the new design have great improvements in terms of usability and functionality, I am more excited in the next version which will focus on the media library functions. I have some ideas and wishes that I would like to have in the media library like tagging and a whole new set of API’s that would enable developers to add functionality like cropping images before they get inserted in a post.
I’ve setup a “bleeding edge” copy of WordPress on my notebook and I must say that the current release candidate 2 is looking good with a lot of the issues being fixed or worked around. If there will be no more major issues then expect WordPress 2.7 final release in the coming days. Time for you to check it out and see if the plugins that you are currently using will work with the new version.
