WordPress 2.7 has been officially released! It was only a few days ago that I wrote about the first WordPress 2.7 Release Candidate, so congrats to everyone on the dev team (literally hundreds of people) for the quick release! It appears the WordPress team is now publicly giving the releases their own code name, with this latest release being called “Coltrane”. (As far as I know, this is something new, but I could be mistaken.) For those who know the Simpsons like they know their own family (I don’t), you may be aware that Coltrane was the Simpsons’ fourth cat (and of course we can’t forget John Coltrane, the American jazz saxophonist to whom the release is really dedicated).
