Howdy Wordpress Lovers!

I woke up in the morning today and as usual I logged into my Wordpress admin account and guess what,

I saw this on the top of my admin panel:

4197359026 e9c1a86fc5 o Wordpress 2.9 Carmen Now Available

Hell yeah! Wordpress 2.9 has just been launched today. Its called “Carmen” [named in honor of magical jazz vocalist Carmen McRae].

This was the most surprising update for me as Wordpress released the ‘Wordpress 2.9 RC’ just 2 days back. So what’s new in this version? How is it different from the older ones? Wordpress answered these questions like this:

1. Global undo/”trash” feature, which means that if you accidentally delete a post or comment you can bring it back from the grave (i.e., the Trash). This also eliminates those annoying “are you sure” messages we used to have on every delete.

2. Built-in image editor allows you to crop, edit, rotate, flip, and scale your images to show them who’s boss. This is the first wave of our many planned media-handling improvements.

3. Batch plugin update and compatibility checking, which means you can update 10 plugins at once, versus having to do multiple clicks for each one, and we’re using the new compatibility data from the plugins directory to give you a better idea of whether your plugins are compatible with new releases of WordPress. This should take the fear and hassle out of upgrading.

4. 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, with Oembed support for YouTube, Daily Motion,, Flickr, Hulu, Viddler, Qik, Revision3, Scribd, Google Video, Photobucket, PollDaddy, and (and more in the next release).

Well there are more new features and tweaks but the above mentioned are the BIG ones!

Are you a Wordpress fanatic?

So what are you waiting for? Go ahead and try “CARMEN”!

Yes, I need to tell you one more important thing.

Don’t forget to take a backup of your blog before you upgrade your Wordpress!

Happy Blogging!
