WordPress 2.9

WordPress 2.9. has officially been released. This update has a number of changes and updates and contains a number of really cool features for both developers and users.

For users – you will notice a few things that might catch your eye:

  • Easy embeds. Simply copy and paste your a URL from YouTube, etc and it will auto turn it into an embedded video.
  • Trash. Now when you have the option to “trash” posts and pages so if you delete something but want to retrieve it later, you can (until you empty the trash)
  • Image Editor. Now you can easily manage (crop, resize, etc) your images without using your favorite grpahics program

For developers – here are some of my favorites:

  • New custom gallery code that lets you include/exclude items as well as pull in attachments from other posts.
  • Post thumbnails. (Just enable and go!)
  • Support location of category templates based on ‘category-slug’ (nice especially when you have more than one install with different category IDs
  • Added ‘excerpt_more’ filter to wp_trim_excerpt() function, which allow developers to change excerpt ‘[…]’ more string

Keep Up to Date With Your WordPress Version

WordPress is a great tool, but make sure you keep it up to date to avoid security vulnerabilities. I have fixed a number of outdated and hacked versions of WordPress over the past few years which could have easily been taken care of by keeping up to date with WordPress updates a few times a year. If you are using WordPress 2.5+ it is really easy to be notified when a plugin or WordPress has a new version available when you log in.

If you do not want to go through the process of using svn or ftp to update your files, WordPress even gives you the option to automatically update.
