Sometime in November, Wordpress will roll out version 2.7. :bang:
There are some major changes coming to the backend, meaning the admin panel is once again being changed. From what I can see, it might be an improvement, and make the use of it more streamlined, but then again, it also changes some major ways of doing things.
Design becomes Templates, the admin toolbar gets moved to the left side, and well a bunch of other changes.

The ‘write panel’ changes too, as does adding media (pics, vids,) and then the plugin section also seems destined for overhaul.
Keep in mind, the changes discussed/shown may not be in the final release, or at least in the version they are in now. They MAY BE refined, added to, or dropped all together.
