WordPress 2.4 is scheduled to be released on 24th of January! The changes in this version will be many and most of them on the backend (admin interface). The new interface seems to be much faster and uses much AJAX and caching! I think that its more easy-to-use as long as bloggers get used to it. If you want to take a preview on the new interface you can see the online demo here.
This demo includes all the core features and aesthetic changes of the new interface! Maybe there will be a beta or release-candidate version of WordPress 2.4 and bloggers could see it in action before 24th of January!
Happy New Year to everyone 🙂
