WordPress 2.3

So my [human nature vs. good business sense](http://heisel.org/blog/2007/10/02/popularity/) post was the first I’ve written with [WordPress 2.3](http://codex.wordpress.org/Version_2.3).

Thought I’d share a couple of at-first-glance thoughts:

* I <heart> autosave – it removes one of the things that bugs me about writing “through the Web”

* I still don’t <heart> textareas, even with nice [WYSIWYG](http://tinymce.moxiecode.com/) editors wrapped around them.

* A fantastic little touch: A tag with the same name as a category become one and the same. I have a category called “[Management](http://heisel.org/blog/category/management/)” and when I created a tag called “management” it was renamed to “[Management](http://heisel.org/blog/tags/management/)” to match the capitalization. The tag and category remaining separate entities, so a post can be in one or another or both.

* The [Tiger Admin Theme](http://orderedlist.com/wordpress-plugins/wp-tiger-administration/) is broke. I don’t mind the stock admin so much — it’s improved a little from 2.2.

* More admin themes would be nice

* It seems to run a little faster, but with [Dreamhost](http://www.dreamhost.com/) I’ll never know if a slowdown is hosting or application related.

* With the introduction of tagging I really do have to finally get my act together and redesign this blog. I really like my type design on the post area itself, but the rest of the design blows chunks… maybe if I ask real nice, my [fantastic wife who is a fantastic designer](http://www.ericaendicott.com/) will help me make something that has a lower chunk velocity.
