WordPress 2.9 is fantastic

If you visit WordPress.org you will notice that the classic blue download button now says “Download WordPress 2.9″. This is a major upgrade, and brings some really cool new features, including:

  • Trash bin (no more problems with accidentally deleting posts or pages)
  • Built-in image editor
  • Batch plugin update
  • Easier video integration
  • rel=”canonical” tag support
  • database optimization

The interesting thing is that when I logged into my WordPress dashboard a couple of minutes ago I didn’t see the message “Your WordPress version is out of date. Please upgrade!”. My guess is that since 2.9 is not a security release, WordPress are not displaying that message to users of older versions.

It is possible that within a couple of weeks version 2.9.1 will be released fixing some small bugs.

What about you, are you running 2.9 already? Do you like it?
