From the horses mouth: 2.7 Gets Here in Two Days!

by in Wordpress on December 2, 2008 @ 11:08 pm

This is so overly great, WordPress 2.7 will be release on Thursday. This is huge and which means I need to get my butt in gear in getting my plugins updated.

As promised, here is the advance notice that WordPress 2.7 is coming to, and will go live on Thursday, December 4, 2008 at 8pm Eastern Time. That’s 5pm Thursday in California, 1am Friday in London (UTC), 8am Friday in Jakarta, noon on Friday in Sydney…find your time here. Some people like to learn how to use new things by jumping right in and exploring, while others like to read the manual first to get the lay of the land. This post is a written version of the 2.7 interface tour/feature review I have been doing at WordCamps, and will tell you what’s new in the administration interface of WordPress 2.7. There are a lot of new features, so fair warning: this post is pretty long. If you’re more of the jump-in-and-play kind of person, you can skip this post for now, but you might want to remember it’s here just in case you get confused when 2.7 arrives at in two days.

2.7 Gets Here in Two Days!

If you don’t feel like reading that post let me bring over another very important note:

A note on browser capabilities: WordPress 2.7 makes extensive use of JavaScript to create the user experience outlined here. If you have JavaScript turned off in your browser, some features may not be available or may work a bit differently than described here. In addition, using a recent standards-compliant browser will ensure that you have an optimal experience. Older browsers that are not supported by their manufacturers any longer may not look as expected; we recommend Firefox 3, Google Chrome, and Safari 3.

What does this mean, it means that WordPress will become much easier to use and manage… for people using better browsers. I am not sure why IE7 is not in that list, I’ve tested it in IE7 with zero issues.

Be sure to upgrade as quick as possible as to not miss out on the beauty that is WP2.7.

Please Back Up Your WordPress Install Before Upgrading
