The WordPress UI team and core developers have been hard at work recently working up a slight redesign of the WordPress Dashboard, seen in the video above. Progress has been made since the discussion started up on the Make WordPress UI blog, where a number of contributors had a say in the direction of the new design. If you would like to help out with the WordPress user interface, check that blog to find out more.
Keep in mind, the version of WordPress previewed in the video above, just like other alpha preview materials we post, should be viewed in that manner. What you see won’t necessarily end up in the next version of WordPress—it’s simply under development, and is being considered for it.
Or, if you would prefer our standard alpha WordPress dislcaimer: The content of this post is pulled from a currently-in-development version of WordPress, otherwise known as trunk, which is about as early in the stages of planning/development as you can get. Well, except the mind itself. But until we can perfect our mind reading techniques here at WPCandy, which would undoubtedly increase the provocativeness of our blog posts, we have to rely on Trac tickets and commits to trunk for early WordPress project movements. All of this is to say: take what is reported here with a grain of salt, since it could end up not happening. And try to limit those terrible, terrible thoughts of yours—we might be listening.
