On March 18th, Matt Mullenweg posted a sneak peak of WordPress 2.5 that talked about a “customizable dashboard, multi-file upload, built-in galleries, one-click plugin upgrades, tag management, built-in Gravatars, full text feeds, and faster load times” and included a few screenshots of the new Dashboard, Navigation, Write and Manage Panels. Judging by the number of pingbacks (583 at time of writing), there's a lot of excitement about the upcoming version of WordPress.
Today, Matt tantalized us further with a short screencast that shows the new dashboard and how the gallery image uploader works.
For the adventurous, there's also the option to download and install Release Candidate 2 of WordPress 2.5.
While I'm not that adventurous – at least not with this and my revenue-generating blogs – I'm chomping at the bit to see WordPress 2.5 made available for upgrade through Fantastico, as I'm particularly looking forward to the one-click plugin updates that are included in the new version.[tags]Wordpress 2.5, Matt Mullenweg[/tags]
