Wow! Just installed the latest beta. The Dashboard interface is incredibly improved. It’s so incredibly professional I can’t believe it. All the 2.6.3 plugins worked pretty well too … well, the DB lost some php code which I have to go through tomorrow, but overall it’s very impressive for a beta. It looks like it even has an auto-update feature so no more manual upgrades (yeah, I know they were easy, but … still). Also apparent is the native ability to decide what page everything starts at … AND a sticky post to the front page. All built in!
