    The new updates are terrific, but what I’m hoping is that this version includes the ability (which WordPress once had) to publish a post automatically on a certain day and time.

    WordPress 2.5 and 2.5.1 does not include that option, and it’s sorely missed. I travel a lot and find it bothersome to open my laptop just to publish posts that no longer publish automatically.
