New features in 2.7? (8 posts)

    I'm sure you did a great job again, but... where can I find a short list of the new features in 2.7? (I mean specific WPMU features, of course, not WP ones). I've only seen the new admin bar mentioned in Donncha's post at http://ocaoimh.ie/2009/01/28/wordpress-mu-27/

    I couldn't find any changelog/news file (or similar) in the package, in the codex, or in the WPMU forums. Please don't tell me to look at the trac timeline, since this is too detailed. I can't believe there's no way to know about new features or possible incompatibilities BEFORE actually doing the upgrade. Am I missing something?

    The laziest way is to install 2.7 somewhere, even on your local PC and give it a test-drive :)

    There isn't any such list. Probably because I haven't written one yet. ;)

    And honestly? Even keeping up with trac and planning a list off that for release day would have been a bit of a job, as some things did get shuffled and changed along the way.

    Aside from the spiffy new UI, one change I've noticed is the ability to update plugins automatically directly in the Admin, a nice timesaver.

    And your wish list is my command:

    Not really, but it sounded good for a second there, didn't it? :)

    Thanks andrea_r! That's exactly what I had in mind! I hope the developers will find the time to add something similar to the package (and to the codex) in future releases.

    The codex can be added to by anybody. :)
