WordPress 2.8 released

WordPress 2.8 is available for download at the official site.

All the changes are listed in the 2.8 Release Jazzes Themes and Widgets entry, but I want to focus your attention on these features:

* You can now browse themes directly from your control panel. I mean the themes contained in the theme directory, not into your installation

* Great improvement in the widget interface… now it’s a lot more user friendly

* Fully compatible with Triqui MochiAds Arcade theme and Triqui MochiAds Arcade plugin, this one to be released on June 22, 2009. I won’t unveil all new features, but prepare yourself for the ultimate arcade manager.

That’s all… upgrade with no fear, I already did it in my blogs.

  • Quirky Quantum

    I wonder what 3.0 is going to be like. It seems like they just added so much!

  • Great overview of the WP 2.8!

    I think you should charge for the WP Arcade Theme. It is unique, well-built, and now future-proof. I’ll donate once I start using it, but I’m not sure that is always the case. Regardless. excellent work. :)
