We managed to speed up our weblog service slightly, although the performance problem is not solved yet. Besides that, we implemented a long awaited feature: the German language pack. Choose between English or German as your weblog language in the “Settings” section of you blog.
Today, we have successfully updated our weblog infrastructure to WordPress MU 2.6.5. Within the next days, we have to to some more small adjustments which should not interfere with your work on this service. Unfortunately, we observed a performance problem with the new WordPress version on our infrastructure which slows down the response time of our service. We try to solve this issue as soon as possible.
What’s new in WPMU 2.6.5. ?

Version numbers of WordPress standard edition and WordPress MU are now the same
