WordPress 2.8 Claimed to Be Faster, With Better Widgets Interface [wordpress.org]
First and foremost, 2.8 is way faster to use. We’ve changed the way WordPress does style and scripting.

The core and plugin updaters in previous versions of WordPress have been such a success we decided to bring the same to themes. You can now browse the entire theme directory and install a theme with one click from the comfort of your WordPress dashboard.

Looks like your link goes to WP 2.8 RC1 instead of the latest stable version?

Here is the right link

[wordpress.org...]

I have been using the beta since it came out and I really like the new interface. I don't know if it is faster but it is easier to use.

New features tend to lower security, /shrug.
