WordPress 2.7 released

Finally WordPress 2.7 has been released. It has a slick new interface design, which I do like very much.

The main navigation on the left fits better on modern 16:9 or 16:10 screens… not like the ribbons in MS Office for example which is very counterproductive on those screens.

This is the second big redesign in 2008, which is not the best thing imho but as far as I know it had to be done. There also have been a lot of enhancements under the hood. They will ease the integration of new backend plugins and themes. I wonder what will hit the surface in 2009….

Thanks to the great marketing community behind wordpress there’s also a short video introducing the new user interface available.
