WordPress 2.9 Carmen With Exciting New Features
Posted in Wordpress Development on 20 December 2009
WordPress version 2.9 “Carmen” named in honor of magical jazz vocalist Carmen McRae is available for download. I will soon check and make required changes for all my themes.
New Major Features
- “Trash” feature, if you accidentally delete a post or comment you can bring it back, just like your OS.
- Built-in image editor that allows you to crop, edit, rotate, flip, and scale your images.
- Batch plugin update and compatibility checking which means you can update 10 plugins at once
- Easier video embeds that allow you to just paste a URL on its own line and have it magically turn it into the proper embed code.
- Custom post types so you can juggle more types than just post, page, and attachment.
- Sidebars can now have descriptions so it’s more obvious what and where they do what they do.
- Automatic database optimization support, which you can enable in your wp-config.php file by adding define(‘WP_ALLOW_REPAIR’, true);.
- Rel=canonical support for better SEO. What is rel=”canonical”?
- Themes can register “post thumbnails” which allow them to attach an image to the post.
- When you’re editing files in the theme and plugin editors it remembers your location and takes you back to that line after you save.
