Wordpress 2.7 released
The Wordpress open source blogging and publishing platform has been updated to version 2.7, named "Coltrane". Wordpress 2.7 features a new user interface with the Wordpress blog promising that "Nearly every task you do on your blog will take fewer clicks and be faster in 2.7 than in a previous version". The dashboard can be configured with drag and drop actions and now nearly every screen of Wordpress is easily customisable.
Wordpress 2.7 also promised to be the last version of Wordpress that will require manual updating. A new built-in upgrade system will notify users of upgrades available and install them with a single click, when the user is ready.
Wordpress are proud to say that over 150 people contributed code directly to the Coltrane release; the highest ever number of contributors in the history of Wordpress. The release is dedicated to the famous jazz saxophonist John Coltrane and is available to download from the Wordpress site.
