WordPress 3.2 Beta 2
We have given a comprehensive review of WordPress 3.2 Beta 1 with screenshots at our earlier post. WordPress 3.2 Beta 2 is also available now.
This is still beta software, so we don’t recommend that you use it on production sites. But if you’re a plugin developer, a theme developer, or a site administrator, you should be running this on your test environments.
Here are some of the things that changed since Beta 1:
- Google Chrome Frame is now supported in the admin, if you have it installed. This is especially useful for IE 6 users (remember, IE 6 is otherwise deprecated for the admin).
- The admin is less ugly in IE 7.
- The blue admin color scheme has caught up to the grey one, and is ready for testing.
