WordPress 2.7 beta 2 is here. Wohoo !

WordPress 2.7 beta 2 is here. Wohoo ! Let’s hope it doesn’t break too many plugins 🙂 Considering i haven’t even yet updated to 2.6.3, i am pretty much excited about the 2.7 version. What i am most psyched about, is the easy update feature in the admin side. I mean … most software you find today are web auto-update enabled. It was time for wordpress to do it as well.

Anyway. Check out the new features:

  • he Upload button didn’t always show. Fixed.
  • JS on the Dashboard broke for blogs with no comments, causing several UI elements to “freeze”. Fixed.
  • Recent Drafts Dashboard module didn’t show correct times. Fixed.
  • Various Autosave fixes.
  • Redirect after deleting a page from the editor went back to the deleted page. Fixed.
  • Fixed loading of translations for default TinyMCE plugins.
  • Added avatars to the edit users list.
  • Added some missing translations.
  • Fixed some validation errors.
  • Fixed some PHP warnings and notices.
  • Handle inconsistent file permissions during auto upgrade
  • Change Publish box layout to better accommodate internationalized text
  • Fix quick editing of the last page in the Edit Pages list
  • Fix Screen Options for IE
