WordPress 3.0 “Thelonious” is out!


As of yesterday, WordPress 3.0 “Thelonious” is out of beta and ready to be installed! There is a lot to look forward to in this point oh version, including a whole bunch of new features, a whole new default theme called Twenty Ten, integration of WordPress MU and multiple blogs into WordPress (boy that seems like such a huge goal from just a few years ago to compete with MT) and a whole slew of bugfixes. The WordPress produced video is embedded below. This is a big one and I am really looking forward to having our team dive into the nitty gritty of this release as soon as possible.

Six Revisions has an ultimate guide to the new features in WordPress 3.0, while Rohand Mehta tells us of the 10 features that he is looking forward to in WordPress 3.0. I also really appreciated Navjot’s list of Template Changes/Tags for WordPress 3.0

What other WordPress 3.0 resources are you reading to catch up?

    Been testing ever since its first beta came out. No problems so far. Though haven’t used the Multi Site feature. And thanks for linking to my post. Appreciated. :)

    I updated my blog to latest wordpress 3.0 version and first thing which I noticed is change in the dashboard layout.
    After that I activated the network settings to let my blog behave like MU.
    So far I have not seen any known issue apart from Google Xml sitemap plugin showing error when I enabled multi-site option.
    I’m waiting to see a quick update for Google XML sitemap plugin, so that it can work without any issue with multi-site,or else any better alternate plugin.

    Please hook up the the phpbb developers and give us WordPress/PHPBB unification. I Currently use WP-United but this means I can’t upgrade to 3.0. I really want to upgrade to 3.0

    Don’t think Thesis 1.7 works too well with wp 3.0 so I am going to wait like the others until thesis is updated. Anyone else with same problem?

    I am on the Thesis theme, which does not appear to have been updated yet for 3.0, so like the others above, going to wait until 3.1 or thesis update.
