WordPress 2.8 (Baker) Released!

Thursday 11 June 2009 @ 11:50 pm

WordPressI just upgraded this blog to the latest WordPress (WP) 2.8, which was just released a couple hours ago. This latest version is named after the late Chet Baker, a famous trumpeter and vocalist in the 1950s.

There are not many changes in the layout and design in WP2.8 as compared to its predecessor WP2.7.1. However, WP 2.8 fixed over 790 bugs and improved themes, widgets, taxonomies, and its overall speed. This is the main reason I upgraded the blog immediately after it was released.

Below are the major improvements worth mentioning :-

  • Browse the entire theme directory and install theme with one click
  • CodePress editor – for people who likes to tweaks themes or plugins as it provides syntax highlighting
  • Widgets interface redesigned – edit widget on the fly, drag & drop widget, duplicate widgets, etc.
  • New Screen Options on every page in Dashboard – better customization by allowing you flexibility to arrange items showing on each page

Visit the link for the all the new features on WordPress 2.8. I’m so impressed with all the hard work the development team has put into this latest version.

For those who are using the older version, it’s time to upgrade your blog. Cheers! :D

Nokia N97 Sneak Preview – Part 3 (Applications)!

This is the 3rd part of Nokia N97 Sneak Preview series, it’s about the main applications in the phone such as the A-GPS (with Nokia Maps), Web Browser, 5 Megapixel Carl Zeiss Camera and the Music Player.

5 Megapixel Carl Zeiss auto-focus Camera

The first thing I tried when I got the phone in my hands was the camera.

The auto-focus is amazing as it smartly detects your shooting object automatically and it’s fast! The white balance is good too. No obvious bluish/greenish/reddish effect which some camera phones may have. I don’t expect the flash of a camera phone to be as powerful as a Xenon, so N97’s doesn’t disappoint me as it does its job just fine.

As for Video Recording, one noticeable thing I need to mention is that the voice captured is quite clear even if the voice is coming from about a meter away.
