WordPress 2.7 Continues to Amaze

For those unfamiliar with WordPress, it is the CMS / Blogging platform used by many mortgage and real estate sites (including this one) and non-real estate related sites from the New York Times to PerezHilton.com.

A while back I wrote a piece regarding WordPress 2.5 and was a bit confused at some of the steps WordPress was taking in re-arranging elements of the backend that are used for administering your WordPress blog. While some of the steps were not exactly in the right direction, they were the beginning of an overall shift in stategy in how the WordPress dashboard is laid out and how users can access their WordPress data.

Since that time, WordPress has continued to make changes and WordPress 2.7 is shaping up to be a very beautiful and advanced part of this evolutionary process. At 2.5 I was not sure I trusted the direction WP was going, now I can say that I can’t wait to see what they build in the coming months and years. Not only is WordPress continuing to build out the WordPress featureset, they are making acquistions where necessary as was the case with PollDaddy and IntenseDebate.

I’m loving the soon to be released dashboard, what are your thoughts? You can read more here.
