Getz WordPress 2.2: Upgrade Now
If you're a dedicated WordPress user you have probably heard by now that
WordPress released version 2.2 of its popular blogging platform.
According to the WordPress blog, this release includes several new features - most notably Widets integration which allows users to easily rearrange and customize areas of the blog (usually sidebars) with drag-and-drop simplicity. There's actually way more that will be of interest to hard-core WordPress users and developers so definitely take a look - might even be a nice Weekend project! If you're not able to automatically update your WordPress installation, there's a good guide on how to do so within the WordPress Codex.
Our very own Kelly Springer (who you may know if you've attended an industry trade show recently) has been spending her nights readying her own WordPress blog about her team - the Chicago Cubs. We'll of course make a formal announcement when she's ready. For those looking to get the most out of their WordPress blog installation, Kelly recommends WordPress 2 (available at Amazon).
