The new WordPress it out! Version 2.8 has come a long way since 2.0 with it’s revamped look coming out in 2.7, WordPress has come a long way.

You can read about all the improvements that they’ve made at http://wordpress.org/development/2009/06/wordpress-28/ – what it comes down to is some minor improvements that you will likely find useful.

First, for those of you that like to change your themes – there is now a built in filter and search. With a few clicks you can be up and running with a new theme. No more FTP’ing!

The second major difference is how the Widgets are handled. Things like editing widgets on the fly, having multiple copies of the same widget, dragging and dropping widgets between sidebars, and saving inactive widgets so you don’t lose all their settings are long awaited and very welcomed!

Along with making it faster and smoother, there are many more improvements you can read about http://codex.wordpress.org/Version_2.8.

So far I’ve automatically upgraded a number of sites and haven’t run into any difficulties, although time will tell.

I really enjoy working with WordPress and truly believe it’s one thing that can really make the internet an accessible and realistic avenue for so many businesses.
