"2.7th Heaven"

Just to prove that I am on the cutting edge of something, this blog is now empowered by:
WordPress 2.7 Beta. Beta than eva.

Yes, the eagerly-awaited beta of the eagerly-awaited new version …at least by me; I was openly questioning how they could have a November 10th release date without putting out a Public Beta before November 1st, and sure enough, Beta One was announced just after midnight and the Release Target is now ‘before the end of November’, making this the Thanksgiving Edition, and I am thankful. After just a little time spent with it, I am very comfortable with the new interface and fairly sure I will NOT need any plug-ins like Adminimize and Manageable that helped to make 2.5/2.6 more usable. In fact, I think I can suggest a slogan for the new version:
WordPress 2.7 Remember all stuff you didn't like about 2.5? They fixed it. All of it. Honest.

Or maybe sticking a label on it “100% Happy Cog Free” to point out the break from the design consultants who got so much flack for the previous New Look. I think the term “Zeldman’s Folly” may apply here; even if not, the phrase “Zeldman’s Folly” is too cool not to use, my apologies Zeldman.

Or maybe a more blame-free slogan could be:
WordPress 2.7 Too modest to call itself 3.0
