I have been keeping an eye on the development of WordPress 2.7 which brings in several new and very cool features. A lot of that is behind the scenes in the Admin section, but some of it will be readily available. A new system for Comments is one of the features I’ve been excited about.
So, a big congratulations! to the WordPress Team! Here’s their write-up on the release. They’ve worked really hard, and I’m jazzed to see what all it holds. I’ll be upgrading soon. This will also be a test to see if my first publicly released WordPress theme, Contender, survives the upgrade without needing a fix 😉
