    I have around 12 blogs that I have to upgrade, but I am waiting for some of the plugins I use to be updated before I do.

    I took a sneak peak at 2.5 awhile back, and I'm excited about upgrading. It looks good!

    I personally do not think all the hype is necessary as there are not a lot of features for the average end-user. The updates are more for the admin/developers and it will take some time for everything to get back up to speed and working 100% in terms of some plugins such as wordfinder. Although I must admit the admin panel looks sweet as!

    The admin panel is way better, and even though some of the features are small they're very helpful. For instance, upgrading plugins without downloading the files again and overwriting. Saves a ton of time, I'm very pleased with this upgrade (which took 10 minutes, no problems whatsoever).

    You guys haven't really pin-pointed that one thing to make me upgrade.
    I guess I'll do like everyone else and upgrade for upgrade sake. But I'll wait a week or so, first.

    I really hated it, I just upgraded my WP, have to upgrade all over again with WP 2.5. Hopefully they can slow down the pace a bit.

    Just upgraded all my sites to Wordpress 2.5 and I'd say its a bit new to me so I'll have to get used to it although it looks great

    New User Features

    * Admin redesign (see WordPress Interface Guidelines)
    * Widget-based dashboard
    * You should be able to have any number of any widget
    * Undo for comment editing
    * Search for both posts and pages 1435
    o What do people want from this?
    o How do the best plugins implement it?

    I like the new upgrade.

    Took a while to get my head around it.

    I LOVE the Automatic updates of plugins. That is probably the best feature.
