Automattic has released Wordpress 2.9.0
an open source (GPL) blog engine based on PHP and MySQL. New features in 2.9 include
- Global undo/trash feature and no more "are you sure" messages when deleting. Apple's known since 1984 that Undo beats confirm every time. Nice to see the rest of the world finally getting with the program.
- Built-in image editor allows you to crop, edit, rotate, flip, and scale your images
- Batch plugin update and compatibility checking, which means you can update 10 plugins at once, versus having to do multiple clicks for each one
- Easier video embeds
I suspect I'll wait for the inevtiable 2.9.1 release before upgrading.
