The WordPress team started planning for WordPress 3.2 back in March and released WordPress 3.2 beta last week. I spend some time playing around with the next generation of WordPress to see what is new with it.
Here is a review of WordPress 3.2 and a list of the new features that you will be using when the final version comes out. Please note that WordPress 3.2 will require PHP 5.2.4 and MySQL 5.0, so you might have to upgrade your server software or ask your hosting provider to do it for you.
Important Note: This is a beta version of WordPress, don’t install it on a production server.
New Admin Interface
WordPress 3.2 has a refreshed admin interface which does away with the curved corners and cuts down on the space used between the menus.
