Upgraded to WP 2.5

Finally upgraded my blog to WP 2.5 today. Looks so sweet that I can’t help sharing it with you.

The administrative part is completely reworked, and it was a stressful experience to see the updated Dashboard, but eventually I’m getting used to it (sort of).

Basically I like the AJAXy Write Post page packed with nice “Add media” section, dynamic tags and categories, improved editor and many other things. It became much lighter and noticeably easier to use.

Give it a spin, it’s worth it!

By the way, I find it a lot easier to maintain and upgrade when WP is installed by checking the code out of the Subversion repository. The whole upgrade process takes counted minutes as it involves running a single command to update sources and opening the database upgrade page in the browser. Check the WP on Subversion page for more details.
