Jane Wells posted some preview pics of the upcoming WordPress 2.7 a few days ago. The first screenshot shows you the new posting interface. As you can see, all the options which currently appear below your editor can now be found on the left hand side (except privacy options). A great improvement in my opinion.
The screenshot below shows the new dashboard. Some things have been removed whilst some new features have been added, including a handy quick post area.
I wasn’t really paying much attention to all the news about WP 2.7 but after seeing these shots I must admit I’m really looking forward to the release.
