The good folks at WordPress have blessed us all with another update. Anyone who uses WordPress to maintain either a personal or business blog is sure to love the new additions added with the v1.3 release. Having been using the application for a while now, it's been fun to watch it grow and it's turning out to be one the top applications out there for folks looking to do some mobile blogging. New stuff with the v1.3 release include:
- Option to load more comments, not just the latest 100
- Ability to load comments by status (all/spam/pendings)
- You can now edit the comment details (Author Name/E-mail/URL)
- Option to manually set the video-size when using VideoPress service
- A much requested formatting toolbar that allows you to bold text for example
- A new word count feature is shown on the post/page write screen
- You can now submit bug reports and feedback from within the app
- Multiple improvement to how Stats are handled
- Improvements on the photo resizing options and a new jpeg encoder is now being used
This stuff may not mean a whole lot to users out there not interested in WordPress. But for those who rely on it, it is indeed some nice changes to the application. Be sure to update if you've been using WordPress for BlackBerry in the past.
