If you’re a WordPress user, you’ve probably heard that WordPress 2.0 is being released tomorrow (December 26th).  Problogger has a list of  10 Things You Should Know about WordPress 2.0.  The items that jumped out at me were

  • Importing from Other Blogging Platforms:  This is of particular interest to me considering I just converted my Tiger site (more on this in the coming days) to WordPress from Blogger.
  • Built In Caching:  Essentially, once somebody has requested a page, a cache of the page is stored on the server.  This will make subsequent requests for the page load faster.
  • Spam Handling:  The new version will come with Akismet spam filtering installed.

This site is powered by WordPress, and I plan to upgrade this week.  I’ll be sure to let you know how it went.
