WordPress 2.7 “Coltrane” has been released with a complete new interface, new features. Over 150 people have contributed code directly to this new release. Some of the new features are the new dashboard that you can arrange with drag and drop , QuickPress, comment threading, paging, and the ability to reply to comments from your dashboard, the ability to install any plugin directly from WordPress.org with a single click, and sticky posts.
ITechLog.com is now using WP 2.7, it’s easy and very fast to use. The menu system has been redesigned and has been moved to the left hand side. It does have a Mac(ish) feel to it, but well no one is perfect… ;) The quick edit function is a great improvement, I had a plugin that did that before but to have it a built in out of the “zip” box is a great plus. Upgrading form the previous 2.6… was painless and my template works with no problems. Well done WordPress, another great release!
