Release notes here.

Seamless upgrade, the only tricky part was that I had to delete existing WordPress 2.0 files, but the WordPress Codex had good instructions how. There must be an easier way to upgrade rather than a manual upgrade.

Features from this release that I like:

  • Page draft/private status (now I can hide pages)
  • Xml import/export (This is a transparent interface for backing up your posts, and is db-independent. However, Pages are not handled)
  • Tabbed visual editor (Finally, I can enable visual editing in my User options. Sometimes I like to edit visually, sometimes manually. This saves me the hassle)
  • Autosave (saves me from myself!)
