Description

It's annoying, but a small problem: links in dashboard (wordpress blog, plugins, Other WordPress news etc.) should be target="_blank" instead of using same window when opening the links.

I disagree: you shouldn't force new windows on users.

Anyway, this is something that can be easily changed using a simple plugin, so closing.
