WordPress 2.6 Released – some new features

Posted by on July 17, 2008 in Wordpress

So WordPress 2.6 was released, and congrats to the new release, some really great new features added, some so small folks might not even notice, such as the word count feature appearing while creating your posts, revision history of posts, allowing easier collaboration on posts and comparing revisions.

One great new feature that got me all excited was the ability to sort your media library, drag and drop style, Ajax is amazing when put to good use :)

Updates like these just get you all excited to try and make use of the features, full avatar support as well for commenters across both gravatar, identicon and monsterID. Been dying to implement the avatar feature on the company blog for sometime, and this will be the perfect time. For those wanting to add it as well, found a great writeup this morning on how to enable the feature with some very basic PHP changes here, Gravatar Support.
