I just upgraded my blog to the new version of WordPress. It was fairly easy, but I must say that though the admin interface is a bit nicer there is not much new functionality. However, there is something called Akismet which is a spam fighting solution for blogs. In fact, the surge in comment spam my blog receives prompted me to finally upgrade from WP 1.5 – in the last three days I had more than 800 comments – all spam of course. I hope most of that will be caught by this new plugin.
