WordPress 2.1 – Ella is here

Wordpress 2.1 EllaBefore I could get the time to upgrade my WordPress 2.0.6 to 2.0.7, WordPress 2.1 (Ella) is here!

So I want to know what’s in it for me to upgrade to the new version. When I read the features list, I am glad to know that…

You can set any “page” to be the front page of your site, and put the latest posts somewhere else, making it much easier to use WordPress as a content management system.

I will definite install Ella 2.1 and try out the CMS features.

The other important features to me are:

The Autosave. I tend to lose my writing and have to resort to using a text editor to compose my post before copying it to WordPress and format it.

New version of Askimet. I believe the new version will catch more SPAM and honest readers will not be mistaken for making comment at this blog.

New, more efficient database code which translates to faster page loading when I add a post, update a post or displaying my blog on your browser!

However, I don’t quite understand this…

New search engine privacy option allows you take you to indicate your blog shouldn’t ping or be indexed by search engines like Google.

Maybe you would like to comment on this and enlighten me what’s this “privacy option”.
