Matt just announced that WordPress 1.5 has already been downloaded over 50,000 times!
Less than two weeks ago at the Upgrade Party, it had only been downloaded 6,000 times when I shot this photo halfway through the evening.
Kudos to the WordPress development team for doing such a great job with this release. Since 1.5 came out, I’ve personally seen quite a few people either start a new blog using WordPress or migrate from another weblog script. Of course, WordPress is what we recommend to all of our web hosting customers who are interested setting up a blog on their website.
