Wordpress 2.7 code named Coltrane has been released.  We just upgraded our blog and I’m liking the new look in the admin area and also it seems to be taking fewer clicks to get things done.  It’s really nice that you can now customize the look on the front page of the admin area.  So I’ll be sure to put everything in just the right spot for me which will mean something as I plan to be more active on our blog.

Usually Fantastico takes about a week for new versions of wordpress to show up.  But not in this case it’s already been released and within the next 24 hours all our servers will have the upgrade on them.  So make sure to upgrade your wordpress through fantastico if that’s how you installed it.

Here’s a quick run down of the other fantastico changes:

So not strictly wordpress but obviously that’s what most users were waiting for.

Here’s a video about the new wordpress 2.7:
