WordPress 2.1 Released

I just found out today that WordPress 2.1 was released two days ago. I made the upgrade this evening. There are some really impressive new features contained in the 2.1 release, including:

  • the “tabbed editor”, which allows switching between WSIWYG & Code View
  • the ability to set a PAGE as the front page of your blog, which will make WordPress even easier to use as a CMS for normal websites
  • the increase in speed of the administration portion of WordPress 2.1 – there’s a noticeable difference
  • the new auto-saving function

The upgrade took only a few minutes after I backed up the database. It was great.

Have a look. I think you’ll like it.
