Some of the new features in this release are:
- WordPress Widgets (integrated in WordPress code)
- Blogger importer (I see a massive Blogger to WordPress conversion)
- Infinite Comment Stream
- Atom Support (including comment feeds)
The WordPress community deserves a pat in the back for making their original goal of a once in 4-months major release cycle. Well done everyone!
I can’t wait to give it a whirl.. but I am afraid i might have to wait until this weekend to do it! Let us know your experience if you get a chance to get your hands dirty.
