WordPress 2.8 “Baker” Released

Last Updated on by

It was announced late yesterday night that WordPress 2.8 had been released. There have been improvements made to themes, widgets, and taxonomies. There were also over 790 bugs fixed.

The WordPress team also released a video tour of WordPress 2.8, where they go over things like the new widget admin area, as well as syntax highlighting in the theme and plugin editors (which I mentioned previously).

I’ll be upgrading the demo server to 2.8 later today to check if there are any bugs with the free WordPress themes, although I’m not expecting anything major.

Have you upgraded to 2.8 yet? How do you like it?
