WordPress releases version 2.5

March 30, 2008

WordPress has released a major new version with version 2.5. There are major changes to the Admin interface as well as several other updates and fixes. Searching now includes pages and posts by default so that you don’t have to use a 3rd party plugin to do this. These changes go a long way towards making WordPress a great piece of infrastructure to build a web presence off of.
Two plugins that are critical to completing the WordPress offering are the cformsII and Google XML Sitemap. These add some critical functionality for communicating with your users and getting your website published into the search engines.
