Test Drive the Coming WordPress 2.5

wordpress.jpgWordPress 2.5 is slate for release in March and promises a host of new features and changes. If you’d like to get a taste of the revamped WordPress, head over to the new WordPress 2.5 demo site.

Blogger Chris Johnston has put up a public demo site using the latest development snapshot of WordPress. The site offers an easy way to preview the coming changes without the hassle of manually installing. You can log in with the username “admin” and the password is “demo.”

Feel free to play around with the demo, create entries and change whatever you’d like, the database controlling the demo site is reset every hour so your changes won’t mess anything up.

Among the things that Johnston suggests investigating are the new widget interface, the new tag control options, the media uploader, the revamped dashboard and new Write dialog screen.

Keep in mind that this is a beta and there are bugs, but it’s still a nice way to get a feel for the coming WordPress 2.5 and if you’ve never used WordPress before here’s your chance to see what it’s like to manage a WordPress site.

If you have strong feeling about the new design be sure the let the WordPress developers know.
