The release date for WordPress 2.8 has almost been confirmed, according to the latest blog post on the WordPress development blog, the target date for releasing WordPress 2.8 is June 10th.

However this is only a target date and may not end up as being the release date in the end, however it would be good to see it released soon, considering the good number of features it has.

If you haven’t yet gotten a chance to take a look or test out WordPress 2.8, take a look at the Hands-on Review of WordPress 2.8 we did earlier today.

    Wow, I can’t wait for the new update. I’m sure many will download WP 2.8 ASAP when it is released, I can’t wait to test the widget API feature.

    Thanks for sharing this.

    This upcoming release will work fine with all previous plugins and mods correct?

    @Abhishek what do you mean “at last WordPress is being updated again”?

    If anything, updates are almost too frequent. It seems only recently that I wasted an afternoon upgrading all my blogs to 2.7(.1) and checking that all the plugins still worked.

    The most anticipated feature in 2.8 for me will be syntax highlighting for the plugin editor. I haven’t seen it in action yet, but I really hope that they have included line numbers. Line numbers would be really useful in the template editor too.

    Cheers,
    Stu.

    @ Stu, Yes line numbers are included in the theme editor. The plugin editor has them also.

    I still prefer editing template files offline while using WP installed using XAMPP.

    I would also like to see a template revisions like the post revisions system.

    Good news!

    It was also good that this cycle lasted longer than the previous one, since there was more time to focus on quality.

    I’ve written a review of what’s new in this version:

    Selecting new features to highlight was more difficult than I expected, because the number of changes/improvements/fixes in this version is huge (while only a small percentage of them is immediately obvious).

    Cheers!

    I’m happy that wordpress is being actively developed. Even better to know that MU and regular wordpress will be merged. That will save some headaches.
