We’ve been waiting for WordPress 2.9 for quite a while now and its nice to see that the wait will soon be over as the first release candidate is now ready for testing.
There are a lot of new features in version 2.9 to try out and test, I suggest checking out the full list of features that can be found here.
While you’re at it, you might also want to test all of your plugins and inform the community on its compatibility with the new version. All you have to do is to go to the plugin’s home page at WordPress.org (Check out Akismet’s page), look for the “Compatibility” section found on the right, and cast your vote on whether the plugin is working or not. For more information regarding this new feature (what it does, how it works, etc), you could check out the post that we made here.
If all goes well, expect the final version of 2.9 to be released by the end of the week! Finally!
So what are you waiting for, go ahead and download the release candidate! Happy testing!
