WordPress 1.5 Released

This is the awesomest thing ever! Nicer template system, improved comment moderation, a great new default template, and to top it off, it’s all smaller than 1.2, despite having more features.

One thing confuses me, though: why is the default template a fixed-width layout? I thought a design that uses more of the available screen area was more efficient and accessible. And WordPress is all about open source, standards compliance, and accessibility, right?

    Fixed-Width layouts are actually easier to design for sometimes. I know I prefer fixed width layouts and definately like having the ability to see a general page background. They could also be thinking that since people like to have things “off to the side” and not just static inside of it, a fixed width would help this.
