Not sure how many know this, but I was reading Amit Agarwal’s blog and it seems likely that WordPress 2.7 will be released on November 10, 2008. My current WP installation is 2.6, and just like Amit, I’m going to hold off 2.6.2 and install 2.7 once that is released. Here’s a list of proposed new features for WordPress 2.7. Here’s a picture of what the back end user interface looks like, courtesy of Jeff.
The most striking feature is that now all Menus are located on the left, instead of at the top. Jeff’s blog gives you all the details you might want to know about this forthcoming overhaul of WordPress. I’m looking forward to it (only one more month to go).
