Wordpress 2.7 new update features

I had updated my WordPress version to WordPress 2.7-beta3-9750 from beta 1 via SVN.  Well, actually I had to do it by first updating the SVN version from my PC, zip it, upload it via FTP, and then extract it to my WordPress installation via cPanel. That's because of my Web hosting provider that does not support SSH.


By the way, that is not the purpose of this post. After upgrading, I headed to the admin Dashboard and click on the Update link located at the left nearly bottom. It says that I had the latest version of WordPress. That is as usual. However, I found that there are three new buttons: Re-install Automatically, Download and Hide this update. That is great, especially for the Re-install Automatically function. However, it is does not work yet. At least, by the time I wrote this post.

Those WordPress guys are working hard in order to make WordPress great software. Hopefully, the release of WordPress 2.7 would solve the problem of re-installing corrupted WordPress, for what ever reason.
