Great news for WordPress publishers! The latest version of the WP platform is now out for download!
WordPress 3.0 aka Thelonious (American Jazz Genius) is the very culmination of half a year of dedicated work by WP's 218 contributors. There are quite a number of major new features introduced in the release, including a svelte new default theme simply called Twenty Ten. Theme editors have all new APIs which help them easily customize headers, backgrounds, menus, post types and shortlinks.
Developers and network admins will appreciate the long-awaited merge of MU and WordPress, creating the new multi-site functionality which makes it possible to run one blog or ten million from the same installation. As a user, you will love the new lighter interface, the contextual help on every screen, the 1,217 bug fixes and feature enhancements, bulk updates so you can upgrade 15 plugins at once with a single click, and blah blah blah just watch the video.
