On December 1st WordPress 2.7 Release Candidate 1 was released. I have been following the development for some time, but didn’t want to put the site on beta software. I decided that since it has reached Release Candidate status and will be final probably in a week or two to give it a try on some of my other sites. I really like the new interface and overall look that I upgraded the main site here yesterday. So far I haven’t had any problems with my plugins or themes, so I feel that is pretty lucky since this version from what I understand is a complete rewrite. I’ll post more as I find out about new additions. Below is a comparison screenshot showing the old dashboard and the new one.
