WordPress 2.7 Beta 1 goes public

On November 1st, the folks at WordPress.org announced that the first beta version of WordPress 2.7 is publicly available. This is said to be a turning point in WordPress’ history, just as 2.5 was.

If you want to give it a try, you can download WordPress 2.7 Beta 1. I’d advise you not to test it on your live server though. After all, it’s still a beta.
