On behalf of the entire WordPress team, I’m proud and excited to announce the
immediate availability of version 2.2 “Getz” for download. This version
includes a number of new features, most notably Widgets integration, and over
two hundred bug fixes. It’s named in honor of tenor saxophonist Stan Getz.
WordPress Widgets allow you to easily rearrange and customize areas of
your weblog (usually sidebars) with drag-and-drop simplicity. This
functionality was originally available as a plugin Widgets are now included
by default in the core code, significantly cleaned up, and enabled for the
Full Atom support, including updating our Atom feeds to use the 1.0
standard spec and including an implementation of the Atom Publishing API to
complement our XML-RPC interface.
A new Blogger importer that is able to handle the latest version of
Google’s Blogger product and seamlessly import posts and comments without
any user interaction beyond entering your login.
Infinite comment stream, meaning that on your Edit Comments page when you
delete or spam a comment using the AJAX links under each comment it will
bring in another comment in the background so you always have 20 items on
the page. (I know it sounds geeky, but try it!)
We now protect you from activating a plugin or editing a file that will
break your blog.
Core plugin and filter speed optimizations should make everything feel a
bit more snappy and lighter on your server.
We’ve added a hook for WYSIWYG support in a future version of Safari.
In addition there were also dozens of UI and accessibility improvements, ranging
from more concise wording around options and links to things like a view and
preview link above the content box when you’re editing a post or page.
