WordPress 2.8 is Here and Upgraded

Here I am at it again. Hopping directly into the new WordPress release as soon it hit the mainstream. Unmindful of things that could happen to my blog if something’s not right, or bugs that’ll definitely appear, or any of my plugins could break. I even forgot to deactivate the plugins first before proceeding with the upgrade.

The fact remains, I am a loyal WordPress user. And I loved the innovations introduced throughout the years in this favorite web platform of mine. Nevermind the bloated issue, as long as it’s working. (Just like my attitude towards Ubuntu. Yes, it’s bloated. But it works out of the box.)

Anyway, the new release offers some more enhancements. And I can’t wait to be the first to try those out. Check out the release announcement here, or watch this video:

With the fresh WordPress installed in my shared server with my current webhost, Bluehost, I was expecting faster navigation especially in the backend. I was worried with the previous version that it might not have installed correctly-may have missed some files because of the automatic upgrade I did.

But now, I installed it via FTP, and I’m still experiencing the same slow navigation. It must really be Bluehost that’s the cause of the problem. I think I should shift to another host now.

Any recommendation?
