WordPress 2.1 is Out

For all you bloggers out there using the WordPress engine, WordPress 2.1 is out. Here are some of the new goodies with this latest release:

  • Autosave makes sure you never lose a post again.
  • Our new tabbed editor allows you to switch between WYSIWYG and code editing instantly while writing a post.
  • The lossless XML import and export makes it easy for you to move your content between WordPress blogs.
  • Our completely redone visual editor also now includes spell checking.
  • New search engine privacy option allows you take you to indicate your blog shouldn’t ping or be indexed by search engines like Google.
  • You can set any “page” to be the front page of your site, and put the latest posts somewhere else, making it much easier to use WordPress as a content management system.
  • Much more efficient database code, faster than previous versions. Domas Mituzas from MySQL went over all our queries with a fine-toothed comb.

There’s a much longer list in the official WP announcement.

Dang! And most WP blogs have only justed ported to 2.07. Time to upgrade once again!
