Happy Thanksgiving from iePlexus! In the spirit of giving thanks, and as a bit of an early Christmas present, I thought I’d give a little sneak peek into something that’s been a long time coming. Our favorite blog development platform, WordPress, is on the verge of releasing the most recent upgrade, WordPress 2.7. This version includes some serious improvements to the open-source application that has quickly dominated the blog development community and continues to grow its market share. More than ever, WordPress has transformed from a simple publishing platform into a dynamic, powerful content management system.
Some highlights of WordPress 2.7:
- Complete user customization of the dashboard by removing, adding, or positioning elements of the interface to your liking.
- A comprehensive design overhaul built from user feedback and usability studies.
- Added functionality for streamlined management and creation, including the ability to post, manage comments, and receive updates right from the dashboard.
Currently, WordPress is in official release of version 2.6.5, and the 3rd beta release of 2.7 is available for testing. Expect 2.7 to officially rock your world in the next few weeks. Stay tuned for more info as it’s available. In the meantime, start nibbling on the 2.7 turkey with this teaser video:
