Wordpress 2.1 Features List

The Wordpress Codex now includes a list of all the features of the upcoming 2.1 version of the popular blogging software. As many Wordpress users know this is a major upgrade. The current 2.0 line will continue to be supported for years but I would highly recommend upgrading after looking at all the new featured. Here are the features:

  • Much more efficient database code, faster than previous versions
  • Autosave
  • Tabbed editor
  • Lossless XML import and export for moving between WordPress blogs
  • WYSIWYG spellchecker
  • Search engine blocker for private blogs
  • You can set any "page" to be the front page of your site, and put the latest posts somewhere else
  • Links can now have sub-categories
  • Redesigned login screen
  • More AJAX to make custom fields, moderation, deletions, etc all instant
  • Pages can now be drafts, or private
  • Minor admin redesign
  • Upload manager
  • Faster dashboard
The new version also has some developer/power updates and fixes more than 550 bugs and glitches. Also if you have never upgraded your Wordpress version before or simply need a refresher be sure to check out the Upgrading WordPress page as well.

Thanks for the generous praise! I'd say I do recommend Cutline, but there are many others that are OK too... might be a good post to list the doog ones!

All the best,
