WordPress 2.8 Beta 1 Released

By | May 22, 2009

It was just announced yesterday that WordPress 2.8 Beta 1 had been released. There are a ton of new changes, which you can see on this page of the Codex. Here’s just a sampling from that list:

  • New theme installer routines
  • Improved widget user interface
  • Add CodePress syntax highlighting to theme and plugin editors
  • Add Documentation (function) lookup to theme and plugin editors

All sounds good for a better wordpress to come out!! We may test drive it soon here at DWT.

Hoping for the best from WP team… Cheers!

    The thing I think I’m most looking forward to is syntax highlighting in the the theme editor. Hopefully they fix the font there to it always looks grungy, like the size is not scaling correctly or something.
