WordPress 2.6 Features, test drive WP 2.6 Beta 1


WordPress 2.5 release was big with lot of cosmetic and backend changes. Next release of this cool blogging platform, WordPress 2.6 is getting ready.

WordPress 2.6 beta is available for download and test drive. Here is quick view of WordPress 2.6 features:

  • A “Press This” bookmarklet for tumblelog style quick posting.
  • Theme previewing as seen on WordPress.com
  • Google Gears support for faster Admin page loads and caching.
  • Better control over images with drag & drop sortable galleries.
  • Built-in word counting in the post editor
  • Bulk delete, activate, and deactivate for plugins.
  • The ability to move wp-config.php out of your web root.
  • And of course usual bug fixes and performance improvements.

As pointed by Ryan, WordPress 2.6 release isn’t as big as WordPress 2.5 However, this should address some issues in WP 2.5 for a better Wordpress blogging platform. Did anyone try WP 2.6 Beta?
