Seems several of my sidebar modules have been blown away, or I can’t find them, or the plug-in powering them isn’t working with 2.5. Very smooth upgrade otherwise. No more Subversion updates! The new WordPress automatic upgrade plugin works almost flawlessly- it didn’t know my wordpress install was in a subdirectory, which was easy enough to fix.
WordPress 2.5 preview is in the house.
A customizable dashboard, multi-file upload, built-in galleries, one-click plugin upgrades, tag management, built-in Gravatars, full text feeds, and faster load times sound interesting? Then WordPress 2.5 might be the release for you. Itâ€™s been in the oven for a while, and weâ€™re finally ready to open the doors a bit to give you a taste.
Very excited to see that Zeldman et have given the interface a thorough scrub. I use Ecto for posting, because the WP write screen has always left me wanting, but I do poke around the other tabs fairly often. As for the new features, speed and plugin management is good, the rest I already have as plugins, nice to see some key features baked into the core.
Shuttle, the WordPress Administration Redesign Project, looks promising. It will be integrated in WP at some point in the future.
After messing around with several semi-functioning Feedburner plugins for WordPress, I came across the aptly titled Feedburner Plugin 1.0 for WordPress. I’m still trying to figure out how to get the comment feed working but other than that install and you’re off. I wish more plug-ins were this simple.
