WordPress 2.1 Ella released
Earlier this week, WordPress 2.1 was officially released to the blogging community. It has been codenamed “Ella”, after the Jazz Vocalist Ella Fitzgerald, also known as the First Lady of Song. I use blogger for my blog. I have experimented with WordPress though for my intranet blog on my PC. It was a good experience playing around with creating DBs, then deploying them etc. But, I am pretty much comfortable with blogger and doubt that i will make the move.
Some of the important features in this new release:
Autosave. This is probably the most attractive feature for me, as i have suffered a lot from the lack of Auto save in Blogger numerous times.
Tabbed Editor to switch between WYSIWYG and coding modes. The new blogger too offers a similar thing, but I have not yet decided to move to the new blogger. I prefer hand-coding the template instead.
Spell Checking! Wasn’t this there before ? I thought that this was a very basic thing for a blogging tool to have!
Any page rather than the latest post can appear as the front page. This looks to be pretty useful as you can play around with your content much more easily.
Flexible Blogroll, rather than depending on third party blogrolls or handmade ones.
If you want to try it , just go over to the wordpress page and download wordpress 2.1 Ella.
