Wordpress did a move that surprised me. They are releasing (it appears) their next version as 2.0 instead of 1.6. (You can get it here).
I played around with the 1.6 alpha (nightly) releases and all I can say is: Oh.
Despite some changes to the database, a reformatted "Write Post" page (which is nice), and an image upload feature for posts, there really isn't that much to go nuts over. I mean, it's nice and all, but it's not a jump to 2.0. That should have been saved for when they get the Page feature to actually work well.
