New features in WordPress 2.9

wordpressAre you thinking to upgrade to wordpress 2.9 ?? Have some hiccups in using it? No idea as to what it has in store?
If yes, here are some features of wordpress 2.9 which could excite you.

1. Global undo/trash (Recycle Bin function) feature, which means that if you accidentally delete a post or comment you can bring it back from the grave (i.e., the Trash). This also eliminates those annoying “are you sure” messages we used to have on every delete.

2. Built-in image editor allows you to crop, edit, rotate, flip, and scale your images to show them who’s boss. This is the first wave of our many planned media-handling improvements.

3. Batch plugin update and compatibility checking, which means you can update 10 plugins at once, versus having to do multiple clicks for each one, and we’re using the new compatibility data from the plugins directory to give you a better idea of whether your plugins are compatible with new releases of WordPress. This should take the fear and hassle out of upgrading.

4. Easier video embeds that allow you to just paste a URL on its own line and have it magically turn it into the proper embed code, with Oembed support for YouTube, Daily Motion,, Flickr, Hulu, Viddler, Qik, Revision3, Scribd, Google Video, Photobucket, PollDaddy, and (and more in the next release).

5. Custom Post Types, This feature defies that statement by giving users a wide variety of ways to organize their articles.

6. Filter User Contact.This feature will allow you to filter user contact fields. In plain language if you want to enable users to add their twitter and/or facebook contact in their profile, you can now do it very easily with few lines of code in your themes function.php file.
