It was announced today that WordPress 2.6 has been officially released. Here are a few features in the new version of WordPress:
- Post revisions – Manage older post saves, very useful for multi-author or collaborative blogging
- Google gears – Designed to speed up your WordPress admin panel
- PressThis – Easily blog about something from wherever you are on the web
- Theme previews – Preview a theme before it goes live
- Bulk management of plugins, easily activate and deactivate in bulk
And much more. The below video will illustrate some of these new features included in WordPress 2.6.
I have not tested the themes here with WordPress 2.6 yet, but I don’t expect there will be any issues. If you notice a problem with the themes and 2.6, feel free to let me know.
Have you upgraded to 2.6 yet? How do you like it?
Looking for web hosting?
Question: What's the best type of web hosting?
Answer: The kind you don't have to worry about.
And that's precisely why I recommend HostGator. I've been using them myself for years and they've been nothing short of superb.
Fast load times, great support, WordPress-friendly, and good prices. Not much more you can ask for.
New customers can get 25% off of any HostGator web hosting package with the coupon: themelab25percentoffNote: I am a HostGator affiliate, but that doesn't make my recommendation any less genuine.
