  1. A new admin UI. Wasn’t it like it like WordPress 2.5 (March 2008) wordpress had a new admin UI. I mean the blog tells “in collaboration with Happy Cog and the community”.
    So Happy Cog wasn’t that great or did they combine? … Wow I’m actually really curious! I love the UI so far and I’m really content of it, except for the ‘Add Image Popup’.
    So curious about the improvement … any details 😛

    What you mean with “Ability to hide columns on the content index pages”? The menu they mean? :S

  2. I think the new admin panel will be even better as it support resolutions larger than 1024

    I have no idea on that part as I have not tried it myself. I am waiting for the beta

  3. Thank you for your excellent plug-ins ( sticky ) and this update, the new UI is very nice and I think your plug-in will work smooth on it too.
