There and Back Again

WordPress 2.0 Upgrade

WordPress 2.0 has been released, its got lots of new features, but as far as I can tell they are all on the author side, not the reader. A full list of the changes is available over on the asymptomatic blog. There is a bit of AJAX in the interface as well, they could use it remove a couple more dialog popups, but editing is much cleaner now. If your running wordpress and are looking to upgrade there is a good article in the support forums walking you through the process.

The release process seems a bit odd though, the files exist, the website is updated, but there isn’t even an blog post announcing the release.
I’m also using the new akismet anti-spam plugin, I hope its good since they force you to create a blog at wordpress.com to use it.

Update:

Offical wordpress 2.0 release announcement is out, has the complete feature summary.

    Did you really expect anything on the reader side? There’s only so much you can do on the reader side, but the author/admin has all the interesting stuff.

    Well come upgrades to the commenting like threading or maybe better search. I realize the exciting stuff is always on the admin side, but it does seem like the reader experience could be a bit better.
