A plugin named MP6? Introducing a brand new WordPress UI design!

WordPress Deals

As those who’ve been keeping up to date with WordPress development news will already be aware, during the development of WordPress 3.6 two major new features were dropped: post formats (more on post formats in a later post) and a new icon aesthetic, which, since being pulled in Feb 2013, seems to have snowballed into a whole new admin redesign – which, unlike most new core developments up until now, is actually being openly developed as a separate downloadable plugin (not recommended for non-savy users), named MP6 (which allegedly “doesn’t stand for anything”). So how does this new admin design look? Let’s take a, errr, look:

The current dashboard design (for comparison):

The new default design (via MP6 version 1.9):

…which, incidentally, also comes in blue:

For more on MP6 (and before installing it) check out the official (secret?) MP6 plugin page and, if you’re interested in following the relevant updates/developments, the official Make WordPress UI blog.

Thoughts? First impressions?

Note: MP6 is a plugin that breaks the current wp-admin UI, and is not recommended for non-savvy users.
