WordPress 2.5 is Out

Huzzah! After a few months of waiting, the next feature-packed WordPress is out! WordPress 2.5 codenamed Brecker is now available for download. As of now, I’m trying it our with my offline WordPress installation test site before I fully deploy it for my websites. But if what the release notes really deliver then I’d have to say kudos to the WordPress gods. Just take note of these features. I’ll probably add a short review after I’m done testing.
