After 6+ months of steady development, WordPress 2.5 has finally been released, with a number of new features, including a media library and the first administration panel redesign since 2.0.

In addition, the main WordPress website has been redesigned to match.

Congratulations to all the hackers, testers, and volunteers who helped it happen.

    That panel looks so much more attractive than the old one. I’d installed about 5 plugins, trying to get a decent theme for the admin panel (I think I eventually settled on Planet X7, and may still keep it).

    I see in the release notes that they skipped 2.4 altogether, which makes me feel a little better for still only running 2.3.0.

    Yes, 2.5 used to be 2.4, before they realized how much work it was going to be, and extended the timeframe. But you should have at least been running the security patches for 2.3: they’re on 2.3.3 now.
