Finally WordPress 2.2 is now available!

WordPress 2.2 Released

WordPress 2.2 “Getz” is now official. According to Dougal Campbel, here are the changes and enhancements you will get if you download WordPress 2.2 Getz :

  • Atom feeds updated to Atom 1.0
  • Preliminary support for Atom Publishing Protocol
  • Widgets are now supported in core
  • Protection against activating broken plugins
  • “Deactivate All Plugins” button. Sadly, my “Reactivate All Plugins” patch didn’t make it into this release. Hopefully you’ll see it in WP 2.3.
  • Improvements to comment management
  • Code optimizations and speedups
  • Future WYSIWYG support for the Safari browser
  • Post Preview moved into a popup window, rather than an iframe on the Write page
  • WordPress-specific XMLRPC API
  • JQuery support
