WordPress 2.1 was released just 3 days ago and is already available in the DreamHost Control Panel as either an one-click install or an one-click upgrade.
The new version includes a ton of new features like:
- Tabbed Editor
Allows you to switch between WYSIWYG and code editing seamlessly.
Your drafts will be autosaved in the background while you’re writing from the moment you write the title of your post.
- Search Engine Privacy Option
In case you don’t want you blog to be indexed by search engines like Google.
- WordPress Migration Functionality
Lossless XML import and export makes it easy for you to move your content between WordPress blogs.
- Content Management System Functionality
Set any “page” to be the front page and put the latest posts somewhere else.
- More Efficient Database Code
An expert from MySQL has optimized every query for maximum performance.
- Upload Manager
Easier upload of pictures, video and audio.
New version of the comment spam filtering service is bundled with WordPress.
Some plugins might not work in the new version, so you might wish to check for upgrades before you press [Upgrade to 2.1].
