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…


  1. I already upgrated to wordpress 2.8, and it is really great. There are many customizations that make life really easy. I am always glad that wordpress is improving so quickly.

  2. Installed WP 2.8 on this new Tonga Jobs blog, and so far, I’ve been pretty impressed with it.
    Now I’ll have to upgrade all of my other older blogs… Maybe I should finally look into the upgrade plugin??
