WordPress 2.6 is out and it’s Turbo Charged

It’s finally here. And a month ahead of schedule.

Why am I so excited for a new release of WordPress?

If you read my “Google Gears and WordPress” post, you’ll see. Working from a South African internet connection (the miserable iBurst to be exact), I REALLY appreciate the fact that it is now MUCH quicker to do things like place images and links inside my posts.

What else is new in this version of WordPress?

Here’s a video to highlight the major changes:

  • Post Revisions: Wiki-like tracking of edits
  • Press This!: Post from wherever you are on the web
  • Theme Previews: See it before your audience does
  • Word count!
  • Image captions
  • Bulk management of plugins
  • Full SSL support

For descriptions of these, visit the WordPress Development blog.
