WordPress 2.1 released; the world’s best CMS just got better

WordPress just released version 2.1. The already stellar CMS/Blog software just got a whole lot better right out of the box. From the release: “You can [now] set any “page”? to be the front page of your site, and put the latest posts somewhere else, making it much easier to use WordPress as a content management system.”

We baked this feature into our custom WP installs last year for several clients, but it’s nice to see this support out of the box. Also included is an autosave feature, a better default spell checker, more AJAX for quicker updates, and better overall performance. Oh, and it’s named Ella after the great Ella Fitzgerald. At last.

Hit me up if your interested in a custom upgrade, and/or if you’d like to see just how far custom development can enhance your WP install as a better CMS.
