WordPress 2.5 RC1 is now available for those looking to test it. It’s very stable and should be bug free. Infact, I’m running it on this blog as we speak! 🙂
However, there’s one “required” plugin for those upgrading — Remove Max Width. Even though I and other users protested, the main developers and designers felt a fixed width of the admin area would be best. However, on my 1600×1200 monitor (soon to be even wider at 1920×1200!), that results in TONS of whitespace. This plugin adds some CSS to make it full width again. Very handy.
