This release incorporates more than 500 tickets, bugs, and enhancements. A few of most significant improvements include:
- Global undo/”trash can” feature. If you accidentally delete a post or comment you can recover it.
- A built-in image editor. Now you can crop, edit, rotate, flip, and scale your images.
- Batch plugin update and compatibility checking. You can update multiple plugins at once.
- Easier video embeds. Just paste a URL on its own line it is converted to the proper embed code.
We recommend you backup your core files and your database before initiating an upgrade. We have upgraded two websites so far to WordPress 2.9 with no issues, but your mileage may vary. Backups are always a good idea!
