I just recently received a notification from WordPress‘ dashboard regarding the availability of the newest update of the blogging platform, which is version 2.8. I immediately updated the site and in just one click through its automatic upgrade features and I am all done. What I did first was to check if the browser still crashes whenever I upload a file using WP’s flash uploader via Firefox. It did not crashed anymore! I’ve been using Chrome lately in upgrading my blogs because of this Firefox crash issues whenever I am making image uploads via flash uploader, now its gone so I’m back to Firefox again. I’ve checked my other blogs but there’s no notification yet so I am still waiting for the said upgrade notice from WP.
According to WordPress.org, the new released version have several scripting tweaks that speed-up the system. Syntax highlighting is now on the Code editor and they have made 790 fixes on the said update. If you want to see the difference, upgrade your WordPress now.
Here’s the video from WP regarding the new version:
