WordPress 2.6 Available for Download

If you logged into your WordPress control panel yesterday, you may have noticed a blinking text alerting you that WordPress 2.6 was available for download.

The new Version, codename “Tyner,” for jazz pianist McCoy Tyner, contains a number of new features that make WordPress the best blogging software on the Net. You can now track changes to every post and page and easily post from wherever you are on the web, plus there are dozens of incremental improvements to the features introduced in version 2.5.

WordPress has prepared a brief video tour of 2.6. If you have 3 minutes and 29 seconds to spare, it’s worth a watch. My upgrade to 2.6 went smoothly and without a hitch.
