I just watched this video about the new UI in WordPress 2.7. I haven’t been using the beta builds so I haven’t seen this yet.
One thing for sure is that WordPress has really come a long way since its early days. I vaguely remember a lot of serif fontwork and limited options when WordPress first came out and how flaky it seemed alongside TypePad (which I started blogging on).
Oh, if you have the bandwidth for it, switch the video to HD view and maximise the video to full screen.
