WordPress 2.8 Now Available

in Blogging/Fun/Internet by

WordPress has just released the newest version of their installable blog software, WordPress 2.8 – Baker.

The most notable addition would seem to be the ability to browse themes from within the WordPress Dashboard. With the Theme Browser, you can specify the color you want, how many columns there should be, and fixed or flexible width. You can then select and install themes that match those criteria on-the-fly, without leaving the Dashboard.

WordPress 2.8 also offers a re-designed widgets interface, improved speed, and has fixed a reported 790 bugs. The download is available here.

Happy upgrading…

First things first, this post is sponsored by PayPerPost.

PayPerPost has a great news for all bloggers and advertisers! PayPerPost v4.0 is now live for everyone.

It is a very simple and elegant way to earn money with no more waiting time for blog approvals.

The new site, so called PayPerPost v4.0 is very “Web2.0? and bubbly. They’ve got Twitter integration and some nice account management. Plus, they offered me some cash to write a short review of their new service.

Features

  • Instant blog approvals.
  • Blog sites are automatically eligible to receive offers after submission.
  • Unlike classic version, new version allows 3 days’ time to complete the offer. So, enough time for those who are always on the go!
  • Advertiser has 3 days to review your post and if they don’t review it, it’s automatically approved!
  • Only drawback is that, unlike classic version which allowed 3 chances for editing, you are allowed only one chance to make corrections if the advertiser doesn’t approve your post. Thus, you need to be extra careful while editing the post to be eligible for payment.
  • Also, cash out to your PayPal account will be made available once you have accumulated $50.00 as compared to classic version in which it was instant.

So, if you’re a blogger trying to make a little dough with your blog, why not give the new PPP a try. Happy blogging guys and have a great day!

Picasa for Mac

in Fun/Google/Internet by

Mac users, you can stop holding your breath. Google announced that Picasa for the Mac, a free desktop application for editing, organizing and sharing digital photos, is now available as a public beta through Google Labs.

It’s an exciting announcement for anyone who’s looking for a good photo management app on OS X that isn’t iPhoto or for anyone who’s used and fallen in love with Picasa on Windows or Linux. This release still sports the beta tag, so you can expect a bug here or there, but overall it appears to boast most of the same features as its counterparts.

The application is available as a free download at picasa.google.com/mac/. Mac OS X version 10.4 or later is required, and the release is for Intel-powered Macs only.

From the press release:

Picasa for Mac makes it easy to manage large photo collections and helps users make professional-looking edits without any technical knowledge, including:

  • A drag-and-drop photo collage tool that gives users control over layout and content
  • A retouching brush to wipe out scratches and blemishes – and repair old photos
  • A slideshow movie maker that uploads users photo montage videos to YouTube with a click
  • Smart auto-cropping that guides users on how to zoom in on their subject
  • And, auto red-eye removal.

Many of us take pictures so that we can show them to the people we care about. Picasa for Mac integrates seamlessly with Picasa Web Albums, Google’s free photo-sharing site, which offers features like name tags – the ability for users to automatically organize and share their photos based on the faces in each picture.

If you have a Mac and you manage to install Picasa, tell what you think in the comments.
