The new version of WordPress, possibly the best blogging tool out there, is out. On the 31st of December 2005, WP2.0 (known as “Duke”) was launched.
While the upgrade from 1.2 to 1.5 felt a bit pointless, the upgrade to 2.0 is worth it in every way. The new spam filters, the entirely new admin section using an AJAX-esque upload system and a much improved post box are only some of the new features to be found in there. The upgrade was painless (though that could be down to my dear other half who did it all…) and my custom theme didn’t break much during the process, requiring just a few little tweaks.
WP2 comes highly recommended! Go on, you know you want to switch!
