So, WordPress 2.7 is finally here. It’s their second visual refresh in a year and I have to say they have really outdone themselves. When they did the last change, I thought “wow, there’s no way they could improve on this.” and “I thought their old interface was good, but this makes it look like a pile of crap!”. But now I feel the same way all over. There are a few things that aren’t where I remember them, but overall, I am loving the new work they’ve done. There’s just one thing that annoys the heck out of me – the new threaded comments don’t work with my theme. I’m going to either have to figure out how to redesign it on my own or switch themes again. But I really like this theme and I’ve done so much customization already.
Here are some comparison images (first 2.6, then 2.7):
Anyway, when it comes to WordPress 2.7 – Good job WordPress team! You’ve done it again!
