After several hours effort moving this blog’s host, i was tempted (read: forced) to upgrade to WordPress 2.5 which was released earlier today. I wouldn’t get into details because you can always find it at many WordPress dedicated blogs, but to quote from WordPress Development Blog newest post:
WordPress 2.5, the culmination of six months of work by the WordPress community, people just like you. The improvements in 2.5 are numerous, and almost entirely a result of your feedback: multi-file uploading, one-click plugin upgrades, built-in galleries, customizable dashboard, salted passwords and cookie encryption, media library, a WYSIWYG that doesn’t mess with your code, concurrent post editing protection, full-screen writing, and search that covers posts and pages.
Well. My first impression on the newer version is, well, It’s more ajax-ed based navigation and faster to load. Then i suddenly realized that WordPress is stating indirectly that they’re no longer traditional Personal Publishing Platform but beyond. WordPress is a Content Management System. Some tweaks will be needed to make all my and my customers themes and current plugins used to work with the new version, but hey, that’s the fun part of having this new version runs in my blogs.
Congratulation to the WordPress team.
