This would be our trailer. Check out some of the upcoming new features and design changes in this sneak preview video, including how to customize your dashboard, the new comment reply feature, the new navigation system, and the customizable posting screen. When you’re finished watching, take the poll below the video to tell us which feature you’re looking forward to the most.
A note on timing: WordPress 2.7 was originally scheduled to be released on WordPress.org for download on November 10th. WordPress.com would have had it installed as soon as possible thereafter. However, the launch date has been delayed due to some additional complexity and our determination to test all the new features with current users before releasing the updated software. 2.7 is expected to be released on WordPress.org by the end of November. We may be able to bring 2.7 to WordPress.com blogs slightly before the official launch date, but for now, no dates have been finalized. When we have a fixed date, we will announce it on this blog, so you all will have plenty of notice of the upcoming change.
Cool, Can’t Wait!
Shouldn’t it be “If WordPress 2.7 were a movie…”? Anyways, nice post. :P
now this is cool….
This is gonna be wonderful to use. I cannot wait!!
I can’t wait for this to go live!
Holy poop on a stick!!!
Now that’s a dashboard!
It all looks great. The only problem is that your trailer has to have fast paced music and a deeper, more dramatic voice for your narrator. After all 9 out of 10 entertainment executives agree, uptempo music and deep voices mean a bigger box office gross. =P
Looks pretty cool!!! I can’t wait!
This looks so good I can’t wait to use it on my production blogs. Testing it on a blog under development has been lots of fun.
When does it come out?
The new UI is brilliant. My favourite feature is probably “reply to comment”, but I have to say the drag and drop format as well as the UI in general are quite innovative. I’d have liked the “post” page to actually be separate so the “post from dashboard” isn’t a welcome feature for me. This is because I like to take time to create my posts… and prefer if I have the writing area is as large a percentage of the screen as possible.
Anyhow thanks for putting in all the hard work so us users can enjoy this! Shalom!
After so much planning, discussion and promotion…are we there yet? ;)
Count me among those who can’t wait to get started using the new Dashboard.
WOW! Can’t wait!!!
Ohhh soo cool i really like it
WordPress 2.7 IS like a movie….too many previews while we hunger for you to just, already, release it!
Good going, all!
Looks great. When is this happening?
You mean “If WordPress 2.7 WERE a movie”?
nice actions for developing my favorite website.bravoo
this is… AWESOME!!! *O*
I just can’t wait to have it and start playing with it! You guys never disappoint, i have been with WordPress for more than 2 years now and it’s still going strong!! Go Guys~~~~!! =D
I love the drag and drop feature on the dashboard.
Drag and drop on Dashboard 20% ! why ? :p
Okay, I know people are going to jump down my throat for saying this, but I believe that a professional site should mind its grammar because that’s the professional thing to do. Those who don’t like the idea of correct grammar are free to be as sloppy as they want; they’ll just look unprofessional to me. With that said… the correct usage is “if WordPress were a movie”.
Extremely moving.. Thank you wordpress.
At the beginning, I hated that guy’s voice, but towards the end, I started to REALLY like it. Hm.
too good. thank you. loved the menu n flexibility :)
Hi, I was reading, that the release date of WordPress 2.7 was 10-th November, then I found on your blog, that it will be released late November. Please, what´s release date of this on wordpress.com, which will be for wordpress.com users, not wordpress.org. Thanks
That looks awesome. Can’t wait to try. Also looking forward to intensedebate integration….
another one awesome updates ;-)
thanks wp team for the great works.
Oh my goodness. This all looks amazing!
This is kinda sexy. I can’t wait to start using it.
I don’t like it. I gotten so used to 2.6 style dashboards, I would be purely WLW and Moderator in case of a switch. If there’s an option to switch to the old layout, I’ll be happy.
enough with the trailers. unleash the beast.
Absolutely stunning! Great job guys.
I think it looks so cool.
In spite of a few things, I just can’t leave WordPress. It became a nice place for me.
Good trailer, can’t wait to see WordPress 2.7!
Looks amazing! :D Can’t wait to be able to use it. :)
[this is awesome]
Looks Great! I’m really looking forward to the threaded comments feature, and the new dashboard looks very user friendly and efficient.
Seems too nice! If indeed we could upgrade the CSS without pay would be perfect!
As ever, I’m impressed. And your narrator didn’t even sound like Jony Ive.
More like a Fulham fan.
Wow, the “At a glance” statistics (with each of the numbers in a fixed place) is so much better than the current format (like “You have 273 posts, 2 pages, 3 drafts, contained within 10 categories and 367 tags. You have 316 total comments, 316 approved, 0 spam and 0 awaiting moderation”) we have, a sentence that needs to be scanned/read each time.
That is AWESOME!!! I can hardly wait…
Wow! That looks great, it will be much easier to manage my site with those cool features…
Looks pretty solid. Can’t wait to roll it out.
Does it include to ability to embed some other video sites? That would be a nice functional add.
This looks BEAUTIFUL!!
Wohoo! If the ‘teaser trailer’ is anything to go by, the ‘movie’ ought to be a ‘Blog-Office’ Smash Hit! When’s the release date did you say?
One ticket Please!
When will it come out? It looks awesome!
very well! I am a hurry to use him…
Although the clip was a little too fast for me to absorb, hopefully ALL of these features will minimize my “darn, how did I do that last time?” Sort of like finding my keys…I know I put them there a minute ago, but my short-term memory punishes me if they aren’t staring me in the face! Thanks!
Can I have all of them?
Just hope it’s compatible with Opera browsers. It’s a pain when you’re used to surf everything in one browser, and then have to change in order to be able to do something on a particular website.
With that detail out of the way, can’t wait to try the new drag and drop features in order to customize the look and functionality of my blog.
Funny and cute. Not sure such hype is warranted.
Anytime the user can customize it’s a good thing.
Awsome!! When will this version release?
pretty cool. love the idea to make the dashboard more of a workspace.
wow, It looks great. We’ll basically be able to put all the features we use most on one page. I’m looking forward to it!
I would like to add that using the polling feature instead of having vast amount of one line posts is a great decision. I also think forcing us to pick one top feature requires us to think a bit more about our response and that is a good thing.
You guys are magic. That looks awesome.
i can’t wait to see this dream in reality , wordpress rocks !
Sweet, this will make it far easier then it was before to blog and that was already simple…*two thumbs up*
Fabulous!! Looking forward to it :)
really good features i’m waiting
This looks very promising – I’m sure it will make things quite easier and more effective :)
Thanks very much.
Looks absolutely fantastic, guys. Keep up the hard work!
It looks good – is it still being beta tested or is the beta now available to all?
can’t choose best – like them all and i didn’t get to watch yr presentation as it was taking forever to upload
although i’m ADSL – i had to turn off my router as the video was like listening to a cell phone with bad re c. pt n
love the yellow at last some colour!
cool! very cool! thanxxx a thousand to the team :)))
I’m also looking forward to a better organized widgets page, such as seeing all side-bars at a glance and moving widgets from one bar to another… ;)
wow! that’s quite the trailer! can’t wait to see the movie! when does it come out–next week? whoo hoo! is Buddy Press next?
I love how customizable it is!!
great work, WordPress!
I’m looking very much forward to it. Good work.
Just. Wow :) drag and drop and compact menu are the best parts.
…I would be one of the intertitles translator :)
¡Congratulations to the translators of the spanish language! ¡We’ve reached the 100%!
This looks to be plain awesome.
I can’t wait for the Dashboard!
Wohoi. Cool!! I cannot wait to see it here at wordpress.com!
I can’t believe so few people are voting for “Comment moderation on Dashboard”. There is consistently a big hoo-hah about the lack of this in previous releases. Kudos for finally implementing this!
Wow! I love the new features, everyone of them and I’m so looking forward to the WP 2.7! Great job, thank you! ^^
Dios que chulo está que ganas tengo de tenerlo ^^ un saludo
Hey actually I’m really looking forward to better control of multiple blogs from one source.
I thought its releasing on november 7 ?!!! today is 8th !!
I’m really looking forward to WordPress 2.7 after seeing that video.
I was wondering if new themes will be coming along as well?
For the record, though, they’re all awesome changes. I can’t wait!
zomg that luks awsm
Definitely more usable than the current version. WordPress 2.7 is looking damn good!
I Vote Other, because I like all of them :) WordPress. This time, it’s personal. My WordPress, your WordPress, our WordPress. WP ROCKS!
Wow. Love it. Great idea.
Hmm, I can’t wait for this new environment. Ok guys, bring it on.
I’m looking forward to this. It looks quite nice and impressive…. very impressive. *rewatches movie*
now wordpress gona ‘ROCKS’
I think the drag and drop feature is very cool. It would have been great if there was a facility to personalize the color of the Dashboard…something on the lines of what Orkut and BBC have done. :)
Definitely option C — this rawks worlds.
Looks nifty! Can’t wait! :D
Looking forward to try it out!
Great work WordPress !
I Like it, I really like it. Word Press rocks…
