WordPress 2.8 is Cool, Smooth, and Simple

The WordPress 2.8 Release is cool, smooth, and simple as Michael says in the latest video announcement. I like that. My favorite new features are the theme search and install that pulls directly from the WordPress.org Theme Directory (amazing!) and the new syntax highlighting that let’s you “navigate your way behind the code behind the poetry.” I’m so looking forward to the improved media handling coming up in the next releases. test

    I only started using WordPress recently, so 2.8 was out when I began.

    The thing that blows me away is the ability to activate new themes. No need to spend weeks creating xhtml and CSS sites, just use a free or cheap theme. Let some PSD wizz kid do all the graphic design.

    I’m slowly getting use to all the great features of a WordPress site. Doesn’t even have to be a blog, can be a CMS site with or without a blog!

    Only problem appears to be the steady acceleration of upgrades… now up to 2.8.5, which means lots of backing up and lots of upgrading.

    If you couldn’t tell, I seriously love the new theme search. WordPress Themes FTW! Well, more upgrades are coming (2.9 is in the works right now)! But upgrading *should* be easy.
