E-mail From Matt Mullenweg

This is probably the second e-mail I have ever received about WordPress from the WordPress project itself, so I thought it was worth mentioning.
Matt recently e-mailed everyone on the WordPress.org announcement list to let us all know that WordPress 2.7.1 has been released. The e-mail was entitled “Have some fun with WordPress two-seven-one”.

If you were living under a rock you might have missed our 2.7 release, which included the most significant interface update in WordPress’ short history and has been pretty well-received.
It’s also been pretty bug-free, which is why there was a longer-than-normal period of time before an update.
We won’t fault you for the rock thing, but for rockers and curmudgeons-who-never-upgrade-to-a-.0-release, our latest and greatest (2.7.1) is hot of the presses:

If you were on 2.7 already you might be able to just press a button (Tools -> Upgrade) and be on the new version in under 10 seconds.
I hope your Valentine’s day was filled with love and luv and chocolate,
Matt Mullenweg

P.S. Plugin search no longer sucks:

Definitely nice to hear from Matt outside of the normal blog posts and I thought the e-mail was a great way to give out a friendly reminder that WordPress has released what will be to many, a powerful and user-friendly WordPress version.
