10 Things You Need to Know About WordPress 2.6
Just when I think we’ve gotten the kinks worked out from converting to WordPress 2.5, Aaron Brazell tells me version 2.6 is about to come out! He’s written a handy dandy guide called 10 Things You Need to Know About WordPress 2.6 complete with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one. (Actually, below, what with Web pages not having backs.)
I’m not a developer, so a lot of the changes don’t have any obvious benefit to me. The Google Gears Support, Post Versioning and improved Press This bookmarklet functionality look like they would be useful to me. Post Versioning would be especially nice since I have on more than one occasion accidentally overwritten a post because I had multiple instances open.
Theoretically, I should stop editing posts in WordPress’ built-in editor and get used to using an external editor. I’ve never found one, though, that wasn’t more trouble than it was worth, requiring me to go into the WordPress editor and clean up bad coding.
