WordPress 2.1 is out – and ready as an one-click upgrade…


wordpress-21WordPress 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.
  • Autosave
    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.
  • Akismet
    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].
