The new WordPress version is ready:
“This version includes a number of new features, most notably Widgets integration, and over two hundred bug fixes. It’s named in honor of tenor saxophonist Stan Getz.”
Being a musician myself, I really dig that all WordPress releases are named in honor of jazz musicians and composers. I’m looking forward to a Coltrane, Shorter or Hancock release.
Among the new features available are:
- WordPress Widgets
- Full Atom support
- A new Blogger importer
- Infinite comment stream
- Protection from activating a plugin or editing a file that will break your blog
- Core plugin and filter speed optimizations
- A hook for WYSIWYG support in a future version of Safari
As well as UI and accessibility improvements and a great deal of new developer features.
