WordPress 2.5 Stable Release Up for Download

WordPress just released its latest stable version (2.5) and it is looking great. The new version is equipped with a new interface which I think WordPress users will enjoy. It takes a little getting used to with the with the new look, but you’ll get used to it in no time. What caught my attention is the ability to change and edit your pemalink for a certain post (see images). This will make your post URL more search engine friendly and you can edit it to what you think is the best for SEO. The add media function is also new where you can easily add images, videos, audios, and other media in your posts. All plugins that I have been using seems to work fine.

Write Post

Edit Permalink

Upload Media

To upgrade to the new version all you have to do is copy everything to your server except the WP-Content Folder. Copying the wp-content folder will overwrite your plugins and themes so you will be left with nothing. Backing up all your files is always a necessary precaution to make whenever making an upgrade in your host. After copying everything just login to your dashboard and you will be asked to update your WordPress database.

You can get the newest version of WordPress here or check your WordPress dashboard for the update link.

Note: If you are using the Zemanta App which I have posted a while ago, It is currently not working with this new version of WordPress (2.5). So we have to wait until they upgrade their app.
