I have just upgraded the blog to the new beta version of WordPress. The final release was said to be out the 10. of november, but instead they are going to make a release candidate for that date.
This version has got a new design, a whole new dashboard and a sidebar on the left instead of the menu on top.
I especially like the way you can install new plugins now, since you can do it directly from the administration panel, without the need to download the pluigin, extract it to the plugin directory and install it. You do a quick search, find the plugin, click on install and activate it!
You can read more in their blog post.
