Now With WordPress 2.5

I have upgraded my blog to WordPress 2.5. It is a very nice piece of software that the WordPress development team has done a great job on. Some of the new features include:

  1. Cleaner, faster, less cluttered dashboard
  2. Dashboard Widgets
  3. Multi-file upload with progress bar
  4. Bonus: EXIF extraction
  5. Search posts and pages
  6. Tag management
  7. Password strength meter
  8. Concurrent editing protection
  9. Few-click plugin upgrades
  10. Friendlier visual post editor
  11. Built-in galleries

The upgrade this weekend turned up a Cookie bug in my URL Rewriter and Reverse Proxy software, that I use to host WordPress on my Windows 2003 server. There will be an updating to the URL Rewriter coming soon to MSDN Code and Codeplex as well as a release on my companies website.
