WordPress 2.8 Beta 1 Is Out Now

Filed as News on May 18, 2009 6:26 pm

Over at the WordPress development blog, we can read about the first beta of WordPress 2.8. If you’re the tinkering type, do give it a go and help kill all the nasty errors that inevitably have snuck in there. There is no release date for the final 2.8 version yet, but the Codex page listing all the changes says May. I’ll believe that when I see it, but it shouldn’t be more than a couple of weeks at least. And remember, this is beta software and will act funky on you, so think twice – nay, thrice! – before running it on a public blog.
