WordPress 2.6 Is Coming Soon

Wordpress 2.6 is due shortly. I doubt that it will be released on time, though that never really bothers me as I would rather it works than be rushed out prematurely just to hit an artificial deadline.

For those who are signed up to my Monthly Maintenance Package, they will get upgraded by me as part of this.

A couple of interesting articles about the new version are available. Weblog Tools Collection talks about:
– Post revisioning.
– Tumbling your posts.
– Admin interface speed improvements (by the use of Google Gears).
– (De)Activating plugins in bulk.
– Other technical changes.

Technosailor also goes into detail about:
– Post revisioning.
– Google Gears.
– Avatar Options.
– Press This! feature.
– More technical details.

Very interesting for when you blog is upgraded and you think “I wonder what this does?”. Just remember, you should be making at least weekly backups of your blog database, and more for mission critical blogs. And aren’t they all critcial?!
