Yesterday, the first release candidate of WP 2.6 (codename Tyner) was released and a day later, the final version of WordPress 2.6 is out and is now available for download.

WordPress again brings in lots of new features and usability improvements with its latest version. They have also done some minor tweaks to improve its security.

What’s hot and new in WordPress 2.6

  • One of the major features to be added is the WordPress Turbo, that uses Google Gears to save your WordPress Dashboard files on PC and load pages at lightening speed.
  • Then comes Post Revision, with which one can track all the changes made to their posts and restore any old saved data if needed.
  • The Press This! bookmarklet is back. This was one feature that many people missed in WordPress 2.5.
  • Now blog admins can preview themes on their blog using Theme Preview without making them live for everyone. You can test it for possible errors and fix them before applying it for everyone.
  • Other minor features include word count, bulk management of plugins, image captions, revamped image control and reordering of Galleries are just to name a few.
  • WordPress 2.6 fixes a total of 194 bugs.
