WordPress 2.5 is almost ready to go. Last week, we’d expected a St Patrick’s Day launch, but it looks as if we’ll have to wait just a few more days for the official launch.
That doesn’t mean you can’t get a sneak peek of the new version. Release Candidate 1 (RC1) of WordPress 2.5 is now available for download, with the team looking for feedback.

As always, there’ll be much more information in Lorelle’s excellent WordPress Wednesday columns.
