Filed as News on December 10, 2008 9:16 pm

Automattic The WordPress community, Automattic included, has really been aggressive over the course of the last few years with great upgrades to its core product WordPress. Today they officially released WordPress 2.7, “Coltrane”.

It’s Faster and Sleakier

The first thing you’ll notice about 2.7 is its new interface. From the top down, we’ve listened to your feedback and thought deeply about the design and the result is a WordPress that’s just plain faster. Nearly every task you do on your blog will take fewer clicks and be faster in 2.7 than it did in a previous version.

Over 150 developers contributed to this release.
Wow! You have to love the power of open source development.

    WordPress 2.7 had 150 contributors, of which only a few were Automatticians, so it’s not really fair to community to attribute the release to Automattic. Would you mind updating the post and title?
