WordPress 2.2 "Getz" Available for Download

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.

Download the latest stable release of WordPress here. As usual, installation and upgrading information is available.
