WordPress 2.8 "Baker" Released

Got it on WordPress' Twitter status:

WordPress 2.8 "Baker" is now live to the world! http://bit.ly/wordpress28 (spread the good word)

Yup. It is here, and you can read more about the new features here. To upgrade to the latest version using subversion while Automattic haven't tagged the 2.8 --

  1. Go into your previously checked-out WordPress directory
  2. Run svn switch -r 11549 http://svn.automattic.com/wordpress/trunk/
  3. Navigate to http://yourblob/wp-admin/upgrade.php

Done! You are running WordPress 2.8! Of course some plugins and themes might not work but who cares. You are now using the latest and greatest :) Most new features are admin panel related, but the one that interests me the most is:

  • Support timezones and automatic daylight savings time adjustment

Yes -- it's about time!
