WordPress 2.2 Out

WordPress 2.2 is out and available for download now!

I’m excited because this version includes widgets (by default), some XML-RPC hooks to edit pages (so you don’t need my hacks), a switch to jQuery from Scriptaculous (Matty got me excited about this), full Atom support (enough of the different versions of RSS!), and the ability to set your MySQL character encoding (go UTF-8!).

If that isn’t enough, 2.3 is planned for release in September.
