The JSLabs blog posted something yesterday (Jan 21st, 2006) about a new release for one of the most popular PHP blogging engines out there - WordPress. A new release, version 2.1, should be coming today (Jan 22nd, 2006).
Some of the new features that will be included are:
- an auto-save function for the drafts that you're working on using Ajax to send the data to the backend
- because of an effort to keep things compatible, the WordPress team worked to keep most plugins from breaking with the new update
- significant improvements to the rich text editor in the composition pane of the administrative side (improvements to the TinyMCE functionality)
