    Here is a short list a main features : (in french but with links to the trac)…

    Hop :).



    LOL, the French site actually stole the features list from a blog post of mine. You can find the original post here:

    WordPress 2.6 Features

    Since then my post has also been updated with info on Identicons and Google Gears support.

    wp-ajax.js will be dropped
    and jquery gets an update

    it comes so slow…

    @johnlamansky — is it posted somewhere that doesn’t require joining some community to read?



    @jabecker — I think you’re referring to a rendering problem under IE 7 (which caused the entire page to seem to disappear [ugh!]) that a reader just informed me about today; it’s fixed now.

    The underlining that indicates a misspelling is replaced by a little gnome that appears on screen and screams at you, “Who taught you to spell, a chimpanzee?!”

    When is 2.5.2 coming out?

    2.5.2 has no date set. It may not be released as 2.5.2.
    2.6 is scheduled for the week of July 7-14th.

    I’ve been running 2.6 bleeding for a while now. It’s nice.
    -The Gears support rocks.
    -I don’t like XMLRPC and APP being disabled by default.
    -Admin-SSL support is nice for the super paranoid people out there.

    I just upgraded to 2.6 beta. I hear all this hype about being able to move wp-admin.php to a folder, yet no one seems to give instructions how to do so…so how would one do that?

    I hear all this hype about being able to move wp-admin.php to a folder

    What hype are you describing? I’ve read nothing along these lines.

    So then it’s a LIE? We cannot move wp-admin.php??

    Well, there is no “wp-admin.php” in WordPress, so I really don’t know what exactly you’re talking about.

    What did you actually read? What are you wanting to do?

    In 2.6, you can move the wp-config.php file one directory below the main one now, thanks to the new wp-load.php file… Is that what you’re talking about?

    same bloody thing. That’s precisely what I was talking about, and I suspect that you knew it too, hence the equally snarky response.

    How in the world do we activate this new service?

    1. Not the same thing at all, as I actually suspected that you were talking about the wp-admin directory.

    2. I wasn’t being snarky. I was actually being confused about WTF you were talking about.

    3. There’s no “activation”, just move the wp-config.php file up one directory. WordPress 2.6 looks in the WP root dir and one dir up for it as well.
