As announced today by Matt Mullenweg at WordCamp Dallas, Automattic has officially released WordPress 2.5, along with their new site design!

What’s new in WordPress 2.5? The biggest change you’ll see is the new administration theme, designed by HappyCog. The new theme definitely streamlines and simplifies the WordPress interface a lot. It also includes a customizable dashboard, built-in galleries (hallelujah!!), built-in Gravatars, and even faster loading speeds.

This build of WordPress is looking more fantastic than ever! Let’s give a huge thanks to the developers and designers at WordPress for a great release!

WordPress 2.5 is available for download over at WordPress.org. And if you’re a WordPress.com user, fear not, you will receive an update to 2.5 in the next week.

As for WPCandy, we will be upgrading to 2.5 soon, as well as making sure our WPCandy v1 WordPress Theme is compatible. Stay tuned for more news on 2.5.
