WordPress 2.7 Beta 1 Released

While WordPress 2.7 will be missing the November 10th targeted release date (see the development blog for details on that), Beta 1 is now available for download. Go ahead and check it out, but if you decide to upgrade a site you care about, make sure to back up your database and wp-content folder! I’ve been running 2.7 for quite a while here, but you never know — something could go wrong.
