WordPress 2.7 Feature List Finalized

The features coming in WordPress 2.7 have finally been set in stone. In addition to the UI changes, which have sparked much debate recently, there are a number of welcome additions to the feature set.

The ones I’m most excited about are:

  • Automatic upgrade for the core files
  • Integrated plugin installer and browser (essentially people can browse WordPress Extend and install plugins with a single click)
  • Threaded comments
  • Inline post editing

Read Ryan Boren’s post for the full list.

The features are not all completed yet, obviously, so we probably still have a ways to go before a release candidate, let alone a final release. I think this is going to be the next WP 2.5 though. A lot of new features, not just back-end improvements, but new toys to play with.

    Have they decided on or hinted at a relese date yet?

    http://weblogtoolscollection.com/ Hints at November, but I was wondering if there was any new news on that….

    @Mikey, November sounds about right (2.6 came out in July, correct?). Weblog Tools Collection tends to be right about release dates anyway. So I would probably go with November, unless they run into problems and have to delay it.

    Thanks Matt :)
