WordPress 2.7 is nothing short of amazing. The WordPress team (and 150 others from the community) went back to the drawing board and redesigned the interface from the ground up. It’s absolutely beautiful, and a testament to great design and an amazing user interface. But it’s not just pretty, it’s awesome under the hood!
Never again will you have to update WordPress by hand. Everything is done inside of WordPress now, whether it’s upgrading the core, the plugins, or even installing new plugins, you’ll never have to leave the WordPress core!
There are tons of other changes, but don’t take my word for it – upgrade now, and get ready to experience the new era of WordPress.
