Today, a new version of WordPress came out. Version 2.1, named Ella after the famous jazz singer, comes with a truckload of new features that will eventually make even the most die hard non-upgraders want to take the plunge. Aside from fixing over 550 bugs, here’s a quick rundown of the new features that we feel are important.

– Autosave.
– Tabbed editor to go from WYSIWYG to HTML editing easily.
– The ability to set any “page” to be the front page of the site, making it easier to use WP as a CMS.
– New upload manager.
– New version of anti-spam king Akismet.

There’s a bunch more stuff, of course, so head on down there and grab yourself a copy. Or, wait a little to see what everyone is saying about it, then upgrade. Just to be safe. That’s what we’re going to do; the ole wait-and-see.
