I just one-click upgraded the ‘ol blog here at oblogn.com to WordPress 2.8. Looking good. Most of all, it’s screaming fast. Good news.
Update: the new widgets controls in WP 2.8 seem to be unusable. I’m unable to expand both the left and right sidebars in the “Simple Balance 2.1” theme I’m using. My guess is this is something specific to the theme. Bummer. I love this theme. I guess I’ll wait to see if there the point release of WP 2.8 corrects the problem or if there is a new theme release.
