WordPress 2.7 looks great

By | December 21, 2008

I just upgraded to WordPress 2.7 or “Coltrane,” which is not my usual practice, as I tend to wait for the subversions to come out first. But in this case, WordPress 2.7 is such a radical change that I had to upgrade. And I am pleased to say, it looks great. The admin look and feel is now so much neater, for want of a better word. However, the navigation speed within the admin seems about the same for me.

The whole upgrading process would have been faster had I just gone into cPanel and deleted the two major folders (wp-admin and wp-includes) which take up the most time to delete – via FTP.

The best news I’ve heard in a while is that upgrading WordPress will soon be a one click affair. I can’t wait to see this feature in action when the next WP version comes out. This is the one thing that would make life easier for everyone unless you’re using the WordPress Automatic Upgrade plugin all this while.

If there was one little issue I noticed so far, it was that the plugin Viper’s Video Quicktags doesn’t notify you that there is a new version out, in the Plugins admin page. A little odd, but I can’t complain. WordPress 2.7 is really cool and I like it.
