We’ve been working our asses off and finally have a beta to share. Download, test, and enjoy the pretty visuals. The word most people use when first seeing it is “sexy”. This is a great design, and I’m very pleased with how it has turned out. When the visuals are complete and the new icons are in, 2.7 will be a very good looking release.
Try this exercise. Load up the Write Post page in 2.6 and in 2.7. Compare the location of the title field between the two. Notice the vertical distance. That’s one of my favorite 2.7 features.
