With the release of RC 1, WordPress 3.2 is fast approaching completion. Besides some notable changes, WordPress 3.2 has actually received a total of over 370 changes to date.

Not only will this version of WordPress be dropping support for Internet Explorer 6 and requiring a minimum of PHP 5.2.4 and MySQL 5, but it will be introducing distraction free writing, a new Dashboard, Twenty Eleven, and an expanded Admin Bar.

Which feature are you looking forward to the most?

    I’m most looking forward to a refresh of the user interface. It’s long overdue and will be a little easier on the eyes for writing and navigating

      nothing WP does will be easier on the eyes until they get rid of that bright white background. hurts my eyes just looking at it. lol

    Manage maintenance mode from the dashboard – on/off, custom message and the like.

    I am looking forward to the Twenty Eleven theme. I know I will benefit from the other changes such as the distraction free writing. But I am holding off on changes to my site will I can get my hands on that theme.

  5. Ben Clapton (2 comments.) says: users have already received the update to 3.2 – at least, the UI updates, and Minimilist full screen. It looks great, and the UI is brilliant. Haven’t looked at Twenty eleven yet, but as I’m thinking it’s time for a new theme for the blog, I might go with that and see what I can do.

      I’ll never be happy with any theme that doesn’t use drag and drop sidebar items. I’m not a big fan of javascript in a theme, but it would be nice to have that in a CSS format

    I’m looking forward to having all the editor bugs fixed, that’s all.

    I would like to see some plugin functionalities (some of these are out of develop) in WordPress core, like Domain Mirror (that enables multi domain support of a single WP installation) or Qtranslate that enables multi language support (it uses html comments to separate multi lang text, that is a workaround)… and so on…

  8. Tom Coburn (67 comments.) says:

    the feature I’m looking forward to the most, IF WP ever gets around to adding it, is support for facebook commenting in the WP core. 99.999% of my reader base already has a facebook account, and who wants to sign up for yet another blog when every joe schmo has a facebook account now. More people have a facebook account then their own website, so I say add support for that in the WP core so we can finally make all the dozens of facebook comment plugins that don’t work obsolite. I would rather see that added to the WP core over anything else mentioned
