WP 3.2 RC1 released

We’ve been testing the latest release candidate for WordPress 3.2. A lot of bug fixes and stability improvements, but a good amount of new functionality being rolled out as well.

The highlights -

  • The visual editor now has a full screen composing option
  • Minor UI changes to admin panel
  • Release of the new reference theme Twenty Eleven, though it’s not at the RC stage just yet – still late-beta.
  • Integration of BrosweHappy, prompting users on outdated browsers to update.
  • Admin bar gets beefed up with additional links.
  • Minimum requirements on the server side get bumped to PHP 5.2.4 and MySQL 5.0.

Perhaps the biggest news, WP has finally dropped support for IE6. Even if they’re a bit behind the trend, it’s a welcome change.
