Last week if you noticed in your WordPress you should see a message saying “WordPress 2.7 is available! Please update now.” That is correct, version 2.7 has been released and you can download it here.
Version 2.7 is a major upgrade to WordPress. Here is a list of new features:
- new interface to make it easier to perform the admin tasks
- customization options on the admin screens
- the ability to reply to comments from the dashboard
- embed support for comments threading
- drag and drop support on some sections
The most useful feature enhancement (i believe) is the automatic upgrade. From now when new versions get released all you will be able to “one click install”, and the software will take care of the rest. This make things much easier for upgrading down the road.
Here is a video demonstrating some of the new features that WordPress has to offer.
