WordPress 2.5

Well, I took the plunge and upgraded to WordPress 2.5.

I’m actually quite surprised – I didn’t look at any of the release candidates, so the new style (for the admin interface) is totally new to me. I have to say I’m quite taken with it (although I did switch back to the “classic” color scheme).

And I have to say I LOVE the new media browser controls – much better for handling pictures, music, and videos embedded in a blog (as I so often do).

Although my configuration seems to be limited somehow – I get errors when uploading image files during the “Crunching” process. I’m not sure what it is; it may be a PHP memory limit on my server. If anyone’s run into this and diagnosed it successfully before, please drop a note in the comments – I’d appreciate it.

In the meantime, I’ve got work to do – upgrading the themes here and over at the Bun’s blog to allow the use of the now-built-in Gravatars. Fun!
