Well hello! This is my first blog post since upgrading to WordPress 2.8.1. I came home from work at about 8 pm and after a change of clothes, getting a cup of coffee and a snack, I downloaded the files for the latest version and then used Filezilla to upgrade WordPress via FTP! (try saying that 10 times in a row).
I was still using version 2.7 until today, deciding to forgo the updates in that same series until something major came along. 2.8 came and went in the blink of an eye and before you could say version 2.8, here came 2.8.1. I couldn’t make out much of a difference initially; everything looked the same. But as I type in this post, I see the differences – for eg. A Permalink button and the link url stands out as you start typing in your current blog post.
