WordPress 2.7 looks gorgeous

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. :)

Sarit – The dashboard does have a lot of info on it but I wouldn't go as far as saying it's overbloated.

Blogwalkie – Usually it isn't clear what plugins will work and what won't until it has been released. Whilst WordPress does support the plugin community etc, they can't program the stable release so that all plugins work.

The new interface is stunning. I am more impressed by the new plugin management feature. No more downloading of plugins separately and uploading via ftp.

1) Plugin searching from WordPress repository

2) One click installation

Both from within the Dashboard. Cooooool :mrgreen:

Here is a good review of WP 2.7

God I hope that stats thing isn't on by default. I don't want to see how many people have visited my blog. I might get depressed 😉

It definiately looks sexy – and its nice to have all the info, but sometimes I want a slimmed down quick view too. Would be nice if they had a bare bones button to push where you could strip away everything but the post writer.

Looks sexy. But I'd say its looking the WordPress.com dashboard which I don't like much. I prefer the old WordPress look.
