It was already released on the 29th of March, so posting it here doesn't really qualify as a FIR, does it? In anycase, I have already upgraded my blog to 2.5 and am currently in the midst of designing my theme which would make use of all the new features 2.5 will offer; namely the in built gravatars function. What are your thoughts about 2.5?I like the new admin colors, but getting round to posting still needs some adjusting too, just not used to the post specific information like categories, custom fields ... etc being dragged all the way down. Did I say saving the post or deleting it feels so unfamilar?On the good side, absolutely love the 1-click plugin update and the multi upload function. I am also glad they actually fix the RSS feed problems, now it can actually show the whole feed instead of the exerpt when you use the <!--more--> tag in your post. There are more positives than negatives in this release in my opinion.
