WordPress 2.6 Officially Released

Last Updated on by

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?
