Over the summer WordPress 2.5 and a prototype called Crazyhorse underwent third-party usability testing, which led to the design changes that will be coming in 2.7. Half of the test participants were wordpress.com users just like you! If you’re interested in the process behind the testing or want to read the report, head on over to the development blog and read all about it.

Looking forward to the new release!
that is great !!!
bring it on!
maybe this explains the odd links coming in too–i was thinking it was early for trick or treat–wasn’t sure whether it was a trick or a treat!
I’ve been looking forward to this.
Neatest invention since toilet paper on a roll.
i cant wait til 2.7 comes out!
Looking forward to it :)
WordPress is the best!
Thanks for that.
cool cant wait
WP Rocks…!!! can’t wait till 2.7…
hehe that’s the name of my blog, just that it is in spanish. Thank you guys, you’re the best
look really good. well done wordpress
OMG!!! u rocks :D
how great it is
that’s pretty awesome, well done again
So looking forward to this one :)
Wow, it’s nice to see you guys at last leave the design to the professionals ;)
(no offense to the people who designed 2.5 interface)
That rox!! : )
Can’t wait till 2.7!!!!
When I get real old, my children will be using WordPress 5.43, and they’ll have a multi-blog network, each blog representing a piece of their personality, and representations of their ego and id. They will combine into a different interface of Facebook, where everyone can define their friends by befriending particular personalities, throwing away the sum of the person at will.
And, one of my sons will come up to me and show me a video of neo-plode rock, which is a combination of 60’s music, 90’s R&B, Bjork ethereal-like backgrounds, with a lot of reverb’d cowbells and whistles and audio snippets of game show melodies in the 20th century. He will show me his ego WordPress avatar: XavierYY2012, and show me his Adobe Community Cloud widget.
I will be unsurprisingly confused, and will remark, ” Back when I was your age, we only had WordPress 2.7, and I had to change theme settings through a notepad editor.”
And he will reply,” You mean, you didn’t have uni-world-css bits? Wow Dad, you were living in the stone age.”
To The Future of WordPress!
very cool, I’ll be waiting :)
Good to know.
Finally a great software with a good interface.
Actually the only drawback wordpress had was that it had poor admin interface, now after the launch of new dashboard i think it will be a overall very good software.
Please, wait… :( I want it…
Bring it on
Great! I’m loving the new look.
mm, lets wait for 2.7.., great work!
This seems fun! thanks wordpress ;)
Your’e on the go all the time, Jane. Thanks for the info.
Thank you very much for this report. It is always interesting to see reports with scientific approach to produce result.
I wonder how would these results differ if testers would be presented with different color scheme. Let’s say that instead of white-blue color scheme interface would use orange color for buttons, bright green for menus, etc.
What I’m going to is to shed some light onto the way blog readers read the blogs and how theme affects the way they concentrate on the content. This will give a lot of knowledge to theme developers, …
Thank you very much again.
Thanks! Good going! Nice
Thank you very much for this report
crazyhorse, love it :)
happy new year. :D
very cool, I’ll be waiting..
This sounds really cool.
WP 2.7 where are you…… cant wait
Lookin forward to 2.7, but will we have a feature to have the 2.6 look? I still like it, cos I saw the wireframes and still aren’t sure
I am All :) SmiLes :)
nice guys, go on, good work am looking forward
yeah great :D
Awesome, more advancements for wordpress, in a few years, they’ll know what you’re gonna type, and the post will already be made :lol:
@Person1233: Lol. That is my kind of humour. :)
Looks great :)
Magnificent! I can’t wait for it. :)
¿When more detailed statistics? visitors’ Net, visitors’ city, etc?
very sharp and informative as usual, and happy november everyone!
WP rocks..I am ready
Good post writing make lighting in the brain.
Looks great. Cool!
I’am ready :)
While the new interface looks nice, it’s just that – interface. Personally, I would prefer that more effort was spent on squashing bugs, improving compatibility with web standards, streamlining the publishing process – and integrating the cache into the main product than all this eye candy.
Waiting for it, Great
Oh no, just as I get used to the old version!
kool. love it.
Generic comment of approval! LOL
another new one!
I can’t wait! Man, wordpress keeps rolling out the features!
That’s another good news :)
Really looking forward to it!
this is very cool. Nice post
when it released ?
top of the line
It is one step further and certainly very important
COOL can’t wait!
its cool….waiting for it…
I don’t know how you guys keep it up. Just keep up keeping it up. I don’t know where I’d be without my weblogsite.
