Ryan Orsers’ review of WordPress 2.5 RC1

Well it has been long awaited for, not yet RTM, but close to it. It is WordPress 2.5 Release Candidate 1.

I have been trying to find out more on this subject ever since I wrote that blog post saying that WordPress 2.5 was going to actually come out on time. (That article is here)

Here is what I found out:

Yesterday (March 18th 2008) WordPress 2.5 RC 1 came out.
Yesterday I erased my other site, http://rtsoftwaresolutions.com/ and installed WordPress 2.5 RC 1on it

Well for all the wait, we now have a new User Interface which has been totally redesigned since the first version I have used which was 2.2.0. It has been a bit of a struggle to get where I needed to go, but in the end I have been able to walk myself through on how to get where I needed to go.

Overallthe colors look a lot better then the latest releases, plus it is a lot cleaner, (what I mean is a little less clutter around the dashboard and easier to look at.) It looks good but you will need a little bit of time to get used to the change of the User Interface. In the end you will like what you will soon see. Now as of March 19th I see that WordPress should be released as of March 21st 2008…. Remember they have not released on time for a while though I think they will need some more time on this one as it still has more then 300 bugs.

Talk to you tomorrow,
