WordPress 2.6

Monday, July 14th, 2008

I’m happy to announce that version 2.6 of WordPress.org is now available , almost a month ahead schedule. Version 2.6 “Tyner,” named for jazz pianist McCoy Tyner , contains a number of new features that make WordPress a more powerful CMS: you can now track changes to every post and page and easily post from wherever you are on the web, plus there are dozens of incremental improvements to the features introduced in version 2.5 . We’ve prepared a brief video tour of 2.6, if you have 3 minutes and 29 seconds to spare, it’s worth a watch: If you’d like to embed the tour video in your blog, copy and paste this code for the high quality version: <embed src="http://v.wordpress.com/mARhRBcT/fmt_dvd" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="640" height="385" flashvars="blog_domain=http://wordpress.org/development/2008/07/wordpress-26/&width=640&height=385"> </embed> And here’s a smaller version, 400 pixels wide: <embed src="http://v.wordpress.com/mARhRBcT/fmt_std" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="400" height="250" flashvars="blog_domain=http://wordpress.org/development/2008/07/wordpress-26/&width=400&height=250"> </embed> Here’s a more textual overview of what’s hawt in 2.6: Post Revisions: Wiki-like tracking of edits With the power of modern computers, it’s silly that we still use save and editing metaphors from the time when the most common method of storage was floppy disks
