WordPress 2.7 out with new Admin UI

A new version of WordPress is now out at 2.7. Some major re-design of the administration layout was done as well as a few tweak, bug fixes and improvements.

If you are running the WP Auto-Upgrade, it should show on your admin panel. The new panel UI looks better and has the ability to move panels/sections around.

Again, please be reminded that several plugins/extensions might be affected by upgrading to this version so better check the compatibility list first before making the move.

    Very nice! I want to upgrade now but I have to check my plugins first because I use quite a few old ones.

    My upgrade to 2.7 went smoothly, except for a plugin that wasn’t up to snuff yet: I used to use Mollom for spam control, but had to switch back to Akismet because of that.

    It does look prettier, more intuitive and cleaner. I like that everything is collapsible and that you can reply to comments directly from the admin interface.
