WordPress 2.6 is now live and it is (as Matt Mullenweg, the creator calls it)…HAWT!

As i was reading about the NEW! wordpress 2.6, it struck me how i actually understood what Matt was talking about, and pretty much followed most of the new improvements and add ons.

Some of the improvements are listed below, in the order of how i remember reading about them on the wordpress.org blog update post.

Reader question
Will you be upgrading to WordPress 2.6, and why or why not? Weigh in below. I have not yet upgraded, i always like to wait a few days or a week to upgrade, as any wacky stuff will come out as others are trying it out. I will upgrade to 2.6, in a few days. If you have already upgraded, do share your experiences with me.
