WordPress 2.7 is now online

Seems interesting, subscribe the way you want to keep updated…

Finally after a long wait, its now online. Yes WordPress 2.7 is online now. Those who have not logged in for a very long time will find it very different and interesting to see the new version of WordPress when they initially login. Even I felt the same way when I logged in today. A sudden change in the view leaves you confused (even when I logged in yesterday). The sudden change in the homepage itself gave me a hint about the availability, but I wanted to check it with my eyes before I can believe it. 🙂 So the change is good…

This new upgrade is more interesting than its predecessors. The new design is based on the JSR 168 Portlets design it seems if I’m not wrong. Portlets are pluggable user interface software components that are managed and displayed in a web portal. Typically, following the desktop metaphor, a portal page is displayed as a collection of non-overlapping portlet windows, where each portlet window displays a portlet.

The navigation is so easy between the modules. You just pick a module and rearrange the way you like it. If one wants to get a feel of the power of portlets, you can see IGoogle by loggin in. The pages in the webpage are easily adjustable and rearrangeable. This upgrad of WordPress is designed the same way I believe.

All together, the new upgrade is very nice. Try it out yourselves to get a feel of it.
