Implementation of the new visual design of WordPress 2.7 is almost done. One of our primary objectives with the new design is to offer interface flexibility and customization. You can drag-and-drop and show or hide many UI elements. Here’s the Write Post page stripped down the way I like it. Title, Content, Categories, and Publish. That’s all I use and now that’s all I have to see. Even the navigation is tucked away on the left so I can concentrate on writing.

Looks very good. Any larger size of this image?
I’m very excited for 2.7’s release. Excited enough that I’m holding off on some site changes so that I don’t have to redo anything once 2.7 is out. 🙂
With the dramatic new look (and new features), I’m surprised it’s not being called 3.0. It seems like the point releases have brought pretty major changes!
Looks good! Can’t wait.
This looks great; can’t wait to try it out!
Now, that looks pretty slick. I’m one of those old farts who hate drastic changes, but hey .. this looks clean and crisp.
I assume it handles plugs pretty well? Ones that add extra functionality to a post area?
So it’s working like the rectangle modules of Netvibes? 🙂
I’d prefer to put more information in our dashboard, just like what Google Analytics is doing now.
hmmm…good sounds, i hope wp2.7 with more power 😉
Looks great, can’t wait for the official release.
As long as the control over the text is there, I’m sold. It looks very slick!
Break Tags work like Break Tags
Paragraph Tags do what they do…
I’m anxious to see this in motion…WP is the shanizzle!
I can’t wait to see WP 2.7. It looks awesome and customization brings a lot more. Thanks for the great efforts.
i can’t wait much longer, i hope WP release new version soon… 🙂
Hmm … this is pretty sexy. WordPress 2.7 is shaping up to be one of the most visually appealing (from the back-end) releases to date!
I’m getting more excited on this release. C’mon guys, bring it on!
I love the fact that categories are back to sidebar. I found it unusable when they were below the post and I forgot to often to set the category to the post. WordPress is GREAT!
Looks good, but I haven’t opened the Write Post page since I started using Windows Live Writer about a year ago. If you’re using a Windows OS I recommend that you give it a try.
I can’t wait for 2.7, all the previews make it the best WordPress ever.
10 day countdown
Does that mean that you have not upgraded since then?
Ah well,very nice!The practical than 2.6. It is best if a new blog default theme~
Look clean and really cool! Hope flash uploader would be fine in this new version! 🙂
It’s not, that’s the whole point. You can drag and drop all of the elements there.
