Like many of you, I don’t like it when change comes to a blog platform or social networking site (talking ’bout you Facebook). It takes time to become acclimated with the new layout, and it can be frustrating relearning where to find information.
For once, however, I am fine with such a change (and it had nothing to do with Who Moved My Cheese):
WordPress 2.7 (aka Coltrane) is fantastic.
Released on Dec. 10, the upgrade’s interface is much cleaner and intuitive than version 2.6.5, which I was running previously.
QuickPress, an area in the Dashboard that allows users to quickly add a post, is handy—and was where I wrote this post.
Many bloggers are reluctant to update their software, having to backup, deactivate plugins, upgrade, and reactivate plugins, hoping the process doesn’t destroy their hours of effort.
WordPress 2.7., however, is worth the upgrade.
