My favorite CMS / best blogging platform on the planet just got an upgrade (35 minutes ago) with the release of WordPress 2.1 – codenamed Ella. Can’t wait to take Ella for a test drive. This is a pretty significant upgrade with lots of new features.
Here are some of the more exciting new WordPress features:
- Autosave while writing a post
- Switch between WYSIWYG and code editing instantly while writing a post
- New visual editor includes spell checking
- Allows setting any “page” to be the front page of the site
- Code is much more efficient, faster
- Redesigned login screen / admin
- More AJAX all around for speed
Much like the Million Dollar Man, everything is faster, better, and cooler. Go download it.
Soon I will be posting some tutorials on how to install, configure, and SEO your WordPress blog (maybe even with video) so subscribe to the feed.
