Automattic has now implemented the WP 2.7 edition on their WordPress.com blogging portal.
The final version of WP 2.7 is not yet released though users can get their hands on a near release RC edition.
This hints at the possibility of near future release of version 2.7 for the self hosted version users.
WordPress 2.7 is a major update to this popular open source blogging platform. Some users might admit that it could have been the version 3 of WordPress.
The back end has been massively updated to make it more user friendly. They have totally revamped the editing screen compared to previous version.
We have been using the RC version of WP 2.7 since quite sometime and we like what we see.
