      It’s look awesome. Gonna upgrade now.
      Thanks for the info. 🙂

    2. I hope this is the last time that we are going to do a manual upgrade 🙂 Probably the most interesting feature will be that auto upgrade, rest being only fancy stuff. And I am sure, I will break my theme as well wrt the threaded comments (had that bad experience earlier)

      Another thing I need to do is to improve my contact commenters plugin to suite the new admin interface look and feel.

      Thanks for the list of features, you saved me from reading long release notes/posts 😆

    3. Havent uploaded the new version yet but plan to do so today. Thanks for the useful links!

    4. I just upgraded to WP 2.7 and the interface sure looks neat. But I got some problem replying to comments in the admin area. My comment just appeared empty when I reply for the first time. Anyone having the same problem?

      I do plan to wait a bit longer. WP experience tells me this is a good idea. 😉

    6. Steve Yu says:

      I love the new admin interface and new features from the new WordPress 2.7.

    7. WordPress 2.7 is the best release so far ^^ Can’t wait for the next 2.8!

      @indocontest & @Steve, yeah it has totally changed the look and feel.

      @Ajith, you are right. auto upgrade lessens the headache and regd threaded commenting, i have implemented to this theme but not yet made it live because, i am stuck with CSS formatting 🙁

      @Matt, you are welcome.

      @Wei Liang, I don’t have problem replying from the admin interface.

      @Dennis, its a personal choice.

      @Mike, did they indicate when 2.8 will arrive?

    9. Atniz says:

      It looks great and so many changes too. Glad we have it for free.

    10. Just wanted to say that I finally upgraded to 2.7 and I love it. Usually I would say if it aint broke…but I seriously am glad I upgraded.

    11. Nihar says:

      @Atniz, Yeah, lot of new features have been added.

      @Make Money From Home, Great. But why were you slow in upgrading?
