Tonight we released version 1.0 of MP6, our experiment in WordPress admin design. It’s hard to believe that it was just back in March that Otto landed the first commit of MP6, which at that point consisted solely of Ben Dunkle’s new flat icons that had been in consideration for 3.6. Ten weeks later, we’re well on our way to a totally updated, responsive, modern design for WordPress. To date it’s been downloaded nearly 10,000 times, and it’s also available for WordPress.com users to test.
And while MP6 is still a work in progress, 1.0 is a nice milestone at which to look back and reflect. I’m very grateful to Joen Asmussen, Mel Choyce, Ben Dunkle, Michael Erlewine (mitcho), Isaac Keyet, Till Krüss, Andy Peatling, and Samuel Wood (otto) for all their contributions, and of course Matt Mullenweg for conceiving the idea in the first place. Many thanks as well to all of you who have shared your feedback and suggestions with us. I’m very proud of what the team has done so far. And I expect the list of contributors will grow even larger before we’re all said and done! If you’d like to help us out, follow along on Make WordPress UI.
