It looks like WordPress 2.5 “Brecker” is making the WordCamp Dallas release date that many people were hoping it would make as the WordPress.org website gets a fresh design that reminds me of the WordPress 2.5 administration panel interface.
Not yet on the development blog, but oddly shown on the front page:
WordPress 2.5, the culmination of six months of work by the WordPress community, people just like you. The improvements in 2.5 are numerous, and almost entirely a result of your feedback: multi-file uploading, one-click plugin upgrades, built-in galleries, customizable dashboard
I am excited to get moving on using the new version and I love the new WordPress.org website. I think it is all a strong improvement. Kudos to everyone involved.
Check out the forums before downloading WordPres 2.5, to see if anyone is having major problems.
